Usability testing is quite important as any check of all other functionality. If the tested product is fully operational but it is not very convenient to use it, most likely, this software will eventually become not very popular among the intended users.
When specialists develop or test any software, such processes as planning, projecting, analysis, as well as quality control (QC) and quality assurance (QA) plays an essential role. These terms are very similar and in some situations, they can be even interchangeable. However, there are some differences between them.
Skills to collect logs in different browsers allows programmer and sometimes QA engineer not only to gather much information about detected bugs but also to understand their technical nature that significantly accelerates the process of their fixation.
Accessibility testing is one of the usability testing types when, first of all, specialists check the general availability of the software functionality for users with different disabilities. Let’s analyze main peculiarities and methods of this type of testing.
Sometimes, it is necessary to test the on-screen keyboard as an inherent part of the whole project. And it doesn’t matter how such a process is called: integration testing or something else. Sincee, clients can pay their attention to imperfect keyboard performance on developed software. And all the negative system’s behaviors can influence the client’s decision to use such a product or no.
The peculiarities of the client-server system interaction allow us to share certain functionality and computational load between connected client web products and server applications, create and perform comprehensive tests of any web product.
In this article, we will talk about security testing using the example of such system vulnerability as XSS injections, with the help of which a hacker can easily inject his dangerous scripts into pages that will be viewed by Internet users in the future.
DB is quite an important part of any software, so it’s very important to test its performance beforehand, by testing the correctness and security of information input. DB testing allows decreasing the risks that are somehow connected with the information consistency, the ability of architecture to react to load before the software will be completely ready to use.
If you perform software testing every day and check one type of product only, you have many chances to notice that your brain starts working in one established way. And all actions are automatic. Consequently, you are likely to miss serious bugs in a product since you need to have an unusual type of thinking to search for them.
In today’s world of IT community, it is really easy to find tools for load testing. You can combine them in several mechanisms and simulate load in several hundreds virtual users. But it won’t do any good; if you don’t understand why to perform these tests and what what results can lead to in the future.
