As I take another step towards Software Quality Assurance Testing. I dive into the blog I found for this week blog post “Top Software Testing Techniques & Tools For Building Working Software” by Ekaterina Novoseltseva. In this blog I learn about the 4 top testing techniques and tools for building working software. Software testing is very important for program development because it helps reduce the risk, time, and cost that comes with developing a new software.
Top 4 testing techniques important for building software
- Unit Testing
- Is used to test each small part of the software system to make sure it is working properly and does what is expected. “The goal of unit testing is to analyze each small part of the code and test that is working correctly.” as put in the blog I am summarizing. The following are a few of unit testing tools:
- Integrated Testing
- Is the act of combining unit test with each other in order to test the program until it is possible the majority of the program together. The way it works is by integrating more than one unit test that leads to a component and as it keeps adding to it becomes an even larger part of the program in order to see how well each unit runs together and how the software program will function. Another thing to note about integrated testing is “that integration test is also about testing units with databases or other external third-party libraries.” as dictated by the blog I am talking about. The following are a few of integration testing tools:
- Functional Testing
- Is important for testing the quality of the software program and making sure it does what it is intended to do and function the way it should when ever the program is used by its users. “Testing is used to verify that your designed application, website, software executes its functions through a proper response to user commands, a consistent user interface, integration with other systems and business processes, and proper handling of data and searches.” As put by the blog I am blogging about. The following are the functional testing tools:
- Performance Testing
- Is the testing process that test how well the software program performs under a certain workload by testing how well it respond and checks the software program stability. It also test the quality of the software by reassuring that the system not only perform as intended but that it’s reliable as well. The following are a couple of performance testing tools:
This wrapps up the 4 top testing techniques and tools for building software.
