When To Stop Testing An Application?

יום ראשון, יוני 7, 2009

I have seen many answers to this question, all talking about matrixes, what should I test, How should I test etc. Not many answers to this question talked about the overall process of development, the bigger picture… The testing process is part of much bigger picture of development that involves the developers, testers, managers, stockholders, marketing and more. Lets start with what stops the development in general, that will be the time to market of course, no product no matter how good it is will worth anything if it wont be sold. When we come to manage a project we slice the time...

How To Run A Recorded Web Test On Different Servers

יום חמישי, מרץ 26, 2009

Many times when I record a web test, I do that on my local machine, the result is all the requests are directed to my localhost. A very nice feature added in Team System 2008 is the “Parameterize Web Server” button added to my Web Test GUI. Clicking on it will open a new window with one new parameter with the default name of “WebServer1”. We can also see that the “Web Server” parameter is the server that the web test was recorded on.     Click OK and see that two things have happened a folder was added to your Web...

How To Extract A Web Test Out Of An Existing Web Test In Team System

יום ראשון, מרץ 22, 2009

Option 2 is obviously preferable because it saves valuable time, take in account that you are not just recording steps but you also adds roles to it and modify it, wouldn’t you prefer to do that one time only? In Team System 2008 there is a nice feature that allow...

יום שלישי, ינואר 20, 2009

How many times we can see similarities in different solutions comes from different companies? The answer is many... Today we can see many companies using the same features in there solutions as there competitors or even the same as features comes from solutions in different fields, you don't see many revolutionary changes between log-in solutions, on-line shops, user settings etc. So if we can see similarity with the features why not to use the same test cases that are approved to be comprehensive instead of reinventing the test solution? I was reading a great article written by James Whittaker located here talking...
