Our ISTQB-certified testers use the best integration strategy and testing suites for bug localization in complex code modules at rates starting from $15/hour
The need for integration testing arises because software must adapt to evolving business requirements. The integration test hunts buggy codes in new patches so it performs without glitches in an integrated environment. In-house Integration testing can be expensive, so the decision to outsource integration testing to Flatworld Solutions saves time and money.
At Flatworld Solutions, we have an excellent track record as a reliable partner for global companies, for using integration testing methods customized for every business requirement. Flatworld Solutions ensures the proper functioning of software modules to deliver optimal and measurable results. As a customer-centric company, our high-quality integration testing solutions are time-tested. We offer integration testing solutions that secure, scalable, and aligns outcome with your organizational goals. We also perform peer reviews, especially if the testing project is large or critical.
Integration Testing Services We Offer
At Flatworld, we provide our customers with the entire gamut of integrated testing services in a fully managed, SLA-driven model; so when you outsource integration testing services to us, we can offer you complete integration testing based on the following approaches -
Big Bang Approach or Non-incremental Integration Testing
In this method, every module is tested together, to verify if the entire system is working as it should. It is perfect for testing small systems and can be done quickly as all components are integrated and tested at one go.
Here we test a minimum of two logically aligned modules in one batch. We test more, related modules to ensure that they all combine and perform well together. This method helps in the quick detection of bugs. This can be implemented through top-down or bottom-up methods.
In this method, the parent modules or the high-level modules are tested first; the child or lower modules are tested later, and then both are integrated. Small pieces of code called stubs are used to simulate how the lower modules will respond until the complete testing and integration is achieved. Here, the integration testing is carried out after considering the real-time environment, so the tested product is consistent.
As the name suggests, here the opposite of the top-down method is followed, where the basic, lo level child modules are tested first, and then integrated with the higher, or parent modules. Here, drivers are used instead of stubs, to simulate the data responses of the higher-level parent module. Usually, the development and testing take place at the same time, allowing the app to be more efficient and built as per customer specifications, and it's also quicker.
Here we have a combination of the earlier two methods, allowing parallel testing of top modules with lower modules or vice versa simultaneously. This method works faster and provides more efficient results.
System Integration Testing
This involves testing a set of interfaces and modules to confirm that the app is as per the required specifications. Here functional testing is performed to determine if the combined modules produce the desired outcome. Test cases are developed in this type of integration testing to simulate inter-module interaction, and also includes system and package testing, and testing interfaces with exterior objects. It helps to determine the validity of the functions of software module dependencies. For the complete solution, separate modules carry data integrity.
What are the Benefits of Integration Testing?
Integration testing refers to the testing of various software systems as a group - or one unit. It focuses on verifying data communication among different software modules to check for the effectiveness and performance of those modules when they are connected. In other words, it checks whether a set of multiple modules work together as they should. Individual modules are usually tested first, and then together, for integration testing. Here are the benefits that can be derived from extensive integration tests -
Integration testing offers a systematic technique to assemble software, simultaneously performing tests to detect bugs or errors that may occur during the integration
Offers a foolproof way to check that the integrated modules function flawlessly
Testing of components at various levels is critical as requirements keep changing in software - here, integration testing is the most effective method to ensure the various modules perform in unison properly
Software applications can be tested to check that they meet the customer's specifications on standards; it also conveys to the software development team that they made the correct assumptions during unit testing.
Integration testing helps to boost confidence in the entire life cycle of software development
Integration testing can be performed as each module becomes available - no need of waiting for all the modules to be ready.
Tests can be performed faster, tracking is simpler, and there is higher code coverage
It is effective in building real-time cases while performing end to end tests
It is extremely reliable and errors can be easily isolated
Integration Testing Process We Follow
Our integration testing services include creating specific methodologies and strategies that allow us to make bespoke integration testing plans that are a perfect fit for your business requirements.
At Flatworld we follow an iterative approach to integration testing, from the initial stages in the development cycle. This means we need to do a lot of forwarding planning, and our testers and developers have to have perfect collaboration. These are the stages our integration testing undergoes -
01. Defining the Scope of Testing Project
We will work with the client's to understand their business needs and determine the scope of work
02. Planning Test Cases
We will prepare comprehensive test cases through extensive collaboration with the clients. The test cases will be used to the benchmark the module during integration
03. Test Implementation
We will implement tests as per the schedule by selecting the best testing suite suited for the code module
04. Test Reports
Comprehensive reports will be created for developers and other stakeholders to validate the outcome
05. Customer Review and Bug Fixes
We will flag bugs embedded deep inside the codes. This will be brought to notice so the developer can fix it before deployment
06. Document Test Process and Update Standards
We continuously upgrade our testing process as per standard guidelines, checklists, and templates. We document everything accurately and keep our testing methods up to date to enable easy recording of new inputs, and sharing of knowledge.
