Testing of products is important in any industry but is especially imperative in the software industry. Not only is the competition high, but a product with bugs or errors can cause extensive damage to users. This is why good developers make it a point to check their codes constantly during development; software testing is a crucial part of the entire process. However, testing is usually hurried along and sped up closed to the launch day, and this invariably tends to affect the quality of the product that is eventually delivered.
This problem can be tackled by automating the testing process. Software test automation is performed by leveraging specialized tools to control test execution and comparing actual results with projected results. Repetitive actions, like regression tests, are usually automated; testing tools also help in automating data configuration, installing products, GUI interactions, logging defects, and so on.
At Flatworld Solutions, we work hand-in-hand with our customers to understand their business and then recommend a precise automation strategy. We ensure that our software testing automation services are carefully aligned, and applied at the right stages in the software development life cycle.
Some of the test automation tools we use are -
We have a robust team of software testers who have in-depth domain knowledge and experience at delivering products that excel the test criterion. The team at Flatworld Solutions can help you develop automated testing software which needs to be configured just once and can then be used to run tests on a need basis or as and when scheduled.
Depending on the type of software and specific client requirements, we use either of the following approaches for test automation -
Graphical user interface Testing - This testing framework helps us generate UI events including mouse clicks and keystrokes. The system detects changes that occur in the interface and then assesses if the program's observable behavior is correct.
API driven testing - This testing framework uses a program interface to the application to validate the product's behavior when it is tested. Usually, tests powered by APIs bypass the UI completely. It is also used for testing public interfaces to modules, classes or libraries, and a number of input arguments are used to evaluate the results, to check if they are correct.
We can automate the following types of software tests -
Functional Testing - checks that every function in the software app works according to the specification by feeding inputs and checking the output
Regression Testing - when any part of the software has been modified, it could affect its functioning; regression testing is performed to make sure that the modification has not hampered the existing functionality of the software
Unit Testing - testing the smallest piece of code that can be rationally isolated, and is usually a function, subroutine, method or property
Black Box Testing - the internal structure or design of the element being tested is not known to the tester, and they can be functional or non-functional
Integration Testing - checks how two or more systems work together; usually used when there is software coupling
Keyword Testing - each keyword represents individual testing actions like mouse clicks or opening a window e.g. a keyword-driven test is a series of operations that simulate users to perform certain actions on the application
Data Driven Testing - we load data that is outside your functional tests and use it to encompass automated test cases
Smoke Testing - this is a load testing strategy used to check that both your test and server are functioning correctly
