We integrate Agile methodology in our QA process. It is a continuous process rather than being sequential in which the development is aligned with customer requirements. The testing begins at the start of the project and there is an ongoing collaboration between testing and development.
User story evaluation
The testing team works closely to understand your requirements. They follow the prioritized requirement practice: With each iteration, the team takes the most essential requirements remaining from the work stack to test on.
Create a test plan
A detailed test plan is created that describes the scope of testing for the sprint.
It contains – systems and configurations that need to be tested, non-functional requirements like code quality, test approach—traditional, exploratory, automation—or a mix, documentation to refer, test environment requirements and setup, etc.
Designing test cases
The QA team writes test cases according to the test plan and unites them into a test case document. For each test case, we specify its objective, the initial state of the software, the input sequence and the expected outcome.
It is a three-step process:
- Identify test conditions
- Design test cases – determine ‘how’ test conditions are to be exercised;
- Build test cases – implementation of the test cases (scripts, data, etc.).
Here, unit and integration tests are built. Unit testing helps check correctness for individual units of code. When a software test case covers more than one unit, it is considered an integration test.
During unit testing, production code functions are executed in a test environment with simulated input. The output of the function is then compared against expected output for that input.
Execute all of the test cases
Executing all the test cases can be done either manually or with automation tools. The order in which the test cases are executed is critical here. The most important test cases are executed first.
It is common practice to schedule integration tests just after delivery sprints. We run a System Integration Test, focusing on how the app components work. So while app-specific bugs will primarily be reported during the sprints, functional end-to-end bugs will crop up during the integration test.
Manual & exploratory testing
Testers are assigned loosely defined tasks to complete in the software. This means you can learn a lot about the way people use your product in the wild.
Testers identify the functionality of an application by exploring the application. The testers try to learn the application, and design & execute the test plans according to their findings.
You get a test summary report describing the testing results. This activity has the purpose of checking the results against the completion criteria specified in the test plan. Let’s look at the components of exit criteria in general:
- 100% requirements coverage
- The minimum pass rate percentage
- All critical defects to be fixed
Continuous delivery leverages all of the above testings to create a seamless pipeline that automatically delivers completed code tasks. If the code passes the testing, It will be automatically merged and deployed to production. If however, the code fails the tests. The code will be rejected and the developer automatically notified of steps to correct.
If however, the code fails the tests. The code will be rejected and the developer automatically notified of steps to correct.
Dark Army Studios Guarantee
We know that if a client’s application launches smoothly and works without any unexpected errors post-launch, they’ll come back for more. So we’re willing to over-invest in edging our software testing processes rather than under-invest, making our financial reports look pretty in the short run.
We offer a risk-free trial period of up to two weeks of software testing services. After that, you will only have to pay if you are happy with the results. If you’re not satisfied, we’ll refund payment.
Types of testing
We perform the following types of testing as per project requirements:
- Functional Testing
- Usability Testing
- UI Testing
- Acceptance Testing
- Cross-Platform Testing
- Configuration and Compatibility Testing
- End-to-End Testing
- Load and Stress Testing
- Integration Testing
- Security Testing
- Data Migration Testing
- Localization and Internationalization Testing
We automate tests for repeatability. We automate a test because we need to execute the same tests over and over again. Would you want to automate a test if you were only going to run it once and forget about it? Of course not! The time and effort that you spend on automating the test, you could have executed it manually.
Implementing a robust automation testing solution is no mean task and proves challenging for many companies – our dynamic and highly experienced team is amongst the top in automation testing services. With a holistic focus on your business, we strategically design test processes, set up robust automated scripts, create QA automation framework and run Selenium & Mobile Apps automated test scripts for consistent and reliable coverage overall.
Functional testing is a process of verifying that a system performs as expected when its features are exercised by another system or directly by a user. The entire range of the development process comes under the purview of functionality verification.
- Unit tests should start at the very beginning to ensure that each block of code performs its intended manipulation of inputs into desired outputs for the next module.
- Integration tests assure that the unit modules connect each other as expected and convey data and commands throughout the system per the specifications to which it was built.
- Sanity testing checks verify that modifications and fixes applied to the code body don’t have unexpected side effects in, apparently, unrelated parts of the system.
- Regression tests verify that later feature additions and bug fixes don’t undo previous efforts or interact with them to cause wholly new problems.
- Usability acceptance is the actual operation of the system in the context in which it was designed to be used and is the gateway to deployment.
In an agile environment, where we work in short sprints or iterations, each sprint is focused on only a few requirements or user stories, so it is natural that documentation may not be as extensive, in terms of both number and content.
We should not have an extensive test plan in agile projects for each sprint due to time constraints, but we do require a high-level agile test plan as a guideline for agile teams. The purpose of the agile test plan document is to list best practices and some form of structure that the teams can follow. Remember, agile does not mean unstructured.
Testing for quality software
Our developers perform unit testing during writing the code to ensure that code works well.
What is unit testing?
A test verifying methods of a single class. Any dependencies external to the class are ignored or mocked out. Note that some single class tests also qualify as feature tests in a few cases, depending on the scope of the “feature” under test.
We don’t consider Unit tests as 'testing-costs. We think that Unit tests should be part of 'core' engineering & a part of development. Not a task that's added to testing costs. If you aren't writing unit tests (irrespective of whether its TDD or not), you are not developing/engineering your product right. You are only building a stack of cards _hoping_ that it wouldn't collapse at some point in the future.
