Application testing can be performed manually or automatically using various tools and techniques. Manual testing involves a human tester executing test cases and evaluating the results, while automated testing involves using software tools to execute test cases and generate test reports.
There are different types of application testing, including functional testing, usability testing, performance testing, security testing, compatibility testing, and regression testing. Each type of testing focuses on different aspects of the application and helps ensure that the application meets the required standards and delivers a quality user experience.
Advanced level application testing involves more complex and advanced techniques and strategies to ensure that the application is thoroughly tested and meets the desired quality standards. Here are some of the advanced level application testing techniques that our team does: Risk-based testing approach focuses on prioritising the testing of features or components that have a higher risk of failure or have a greater impact on the application's functionality. Advanced level application testing often involves automation testing, where testing tools are used to execute tests and generate test reports. Performance testing evaluates the application's performance under different loads and conditions. Security testing: This type of testing is focused on identifying vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the application's security features.
There are numerous application testing tools available that can help testers automate and streamline the testing process, improve efficiency, and reduce the overall testing time. Here are some of the commonly used application testing tools:
Selenium: This is a popular open-source tool used for automating web browsers. JMeter: This is an open-source tool used for performance testing of web applications. Appium: This is an open-source tool used for automating mobile applications. SoapUI: This is a tool used for testing SOAP and REST web services. LoadRunner: This is a commercial tool used for performance testing of web and mobile applications. Postman: This is a tool used for testing APIs.
Advanced level application testing involves a more comprehensive and in-depth approach to testing that requires specialised skills and knowledge. It helps ensure that the application is of high quality and meets the desired standards and expectations of the end-users.
