    What is Software Testing?
    Software testing is an investigation conducted to provide stakeholders with information about the quality of the product or service under test.

    What is the purpose of the testing?
    Testing provides information whether or not a certain product meets the requirements.

  4. Rudraansh Bharadwaj says:

    If there are no requirements, how will you write your test plan?
    If there are no requirements we try to gather as much details as possible from:
    • Business Analysts
    • Developers (If accessible)
    • Previous Version documentation (if any)
    • Stake holders (If accessible)
    • Prototypes.

    What is Integration testing?
    Integration testing – Testing of combined parts of an application to determine if they function together correctly. The ‘parts’ can be code modules, individual applications, client and server applications on a network, etc. This type of testing is especially relevant to client/server and distributed systems.

    Why do we do regression testing?
    In any application new functionalities can be added so the application has to be tested to see whether the added functionalities have affected the existing functionalities or not. Here instead of retesting all the existing functionalities baseline scripts created for these can be rerun and tested.

    What is MR?
    MR is a Modification Request also known as Defect Report, a request to modify the program so that program does what it is supposed to do.

    Why you write MR?
    MR is written for reporting problems/errors or suggestions in the software.

    What criteria you will follow to assign severity and due date to the MR?
    Defects (MR) are assigned severity as follows:
    Critical: show stoppers (the system is unusable)
    High: The system is very hard to use and some cases are prone to convert to critical issues if not taken care of.
    Medium: The system functionality has a major bug but is not too critical but needs to be fixed in order for the AUT to go to production environment.
    Low: cosmetic (GUI related)

    You find a bug and the developer says “It’s not possible” what do u do?
    I’ll discuss with him under what conditions (working environment) the bug was produced. I’ll provide him with more details and the snapshot of the bug.

    How do you help developer to track the fault s in the software?
    By providing him with details of the defects which include the environment, test data, steps followed etc and helping him to reproduce the defect in his environment.

    What are the different types of MRs?
    MR for suggestions,
    MR for defect reports,
    MR for documentations changes

    What type of document do you need for QA, QC and testing?
    Following is the list of documents required by QA and QC teams
    Business requirements
    Use cases
    Test plan
    Test cases

    How do you go about testing a project?
    1. Analyze user requirement documents and other documents like software specifications, design document etc.
    2. Write master test plan which describe the scope, objective, strategy, risk/contingencies, resources
    3. Write system test plan and detailed test cases
    4. Execute test cases manually and compare actual results against expected results.
    5. Identify mismatches, report defect to the development team using defect reporting tool.
    6. Track defect, perform regression test to verify that defect is fixed and did not disturb other parts of the application.
    7. Once all the defects are closed and application is stabilized, automate the test scripts for regression and performance testing.

    How do you go about testing a web application?
    We check for User interface, Functionality, Interface testing, Compatibility, Load/Stress, and Security.

    What is configuration management?
    Configuration management (CM) is a process for establishing and maintaining consistency of a product’s performance and functional and physical attributes with its requirements, design and operational information throughout its life.

    What is test Metrics?
    Test metrics contains following details:
    • Total test
    • Test run
    • Test passed
    • Test failed
    • Tests deferred
    • Test passed the first time

    What is the use of Metrics?
    Provide the accurate measurement of test coverage.

    What is the difference between SRS and BRS?
    BRS is a document, which contains the requirements of a customer during initial phase. It is prepared by Business Analyst. It plays a vital role in all the phases of SDLC. SRS is also a document which is prepared on the basis of BRS. It is prepared by System Analyst/Project manager. It mainly contains tentative plan, technological selection etc.

    1. What is verification?
    A: Verification ensures the product is designed to deliver all functionality to the customer; it typically involves reviews and meetings to evaluate documents, plans, code, requirements and specifications; this can be done with checklists, issues lists, and walkthroughs and inspection meetings.

    2. What is validation?
    A: Validation ensures that functionality, as defined in requirements, is the intended behavior of the product; validation typically involves actual testing and takes place after verifications are completed.
