Quality Assurance (QA)

Manual testing

Manual testing is a type of Software Testing where Testers manually execute test cases without using any automation tools. Manual Testing is the most primitive of all testing types and helps find bugs in the software system.

Microsoft Test Manager

An extension introduced along with Visual Studio 2010 and Team Foundation Server 2010. It is used to create and organize test plans and test cases, and execute manual tests. 

Mocha

A JavaScript test framework running on Node.js and in the browser. Runs tests serially, mapping uncaught exceptions to the correct test cases. It creates an environment in which we can use our favorite assert libraries.

Mockito

An open source Java-based testing framework used for effective unit testing of Java applications, allows the creation of test double objects (mock objects) in automated unit tests for TDD or BDD.

Monkey testing

A software testing technique where the user tests the application by providing random inputs and checking the behavior. These actions do not require any special skills, but sometimes they help to successfully find even complex bugs.

Negative testing

A method of testing an application or system that is done to ensure the stability of the application. Checks a system for unexpected conditions. Also known as error path testing or failure testing.

NeoLoad

A load and performance testing tool that makes web testing more quickly, efficiently, and frequently, helps to optimize performance of the applications. Its monitoring modules identify performance bottlenecks, allowing to correct them prior to production, thereby enabling to assess the performance and reliability.

Nightwatch.js

An automated testing and continuous integration framework based on Node.js and Selenium webdriver, aimed at facilitating web browser automation, allows to write scenarios automatically played by a browser.

Nodeunit

A tool designed for defining and running Node.js and browser unit tests. Simple syntax, powerful tool. It is simple to use, it allows to use of mocks and stubs.

Nose

A Python testing framework that extends the test loading and running features of unittest, making it easier to write, find and run tests.These features, and many more, are customizable through the use of plugins.

Okapi Framework

A set of interface specifications, format definitions, components and applications that provides an environment to build interoperable tools for the different steps of the translation and localization process.

Penetration testing

A product or service for an authorized attempt to bypass the means of protecting the information system. The result of the test is a report that can / must contain a list of detected vulnerabilities, used attack vectors, achieved results, recommendations for correction.

Performance testing

Testing, which is conducted to determine how quickly the computer system or part of it under a certain load. It can also serve to verify and confirm other attributes of system quality, such as scalability, reliability and resource consumption.

PhantomJS

A headless (without GUI) browser used for automating web page interaction, providing JavaScript API it enables automated navigation, screenshots, etc, it used to run browser-based unit tests in a headless system.

PHPUnit

A unit testing framework for the PHP that aims to find mistakes in newly committed code quickly asserting that no code regression is in other parts of the code base.

Protractor

An end-to-end test framework for Angular and AngularJS applications. Protractor is a Node.js program built on top of WebDriverJS. Protractor runs tests against your application running in a real browser, interacting with it as a user would.

Pytest

A Python testing framework used to create small tests, it makes simple tests very easy to write, it has advanced features (and tons of plugins) that help with more advanced testing scenarios.

QC

Quality control is a set of activities for identifying and correcting defects and mistakes in the developed, but not released product. QC engineer focuses on testing by performing a program to identify defects.

qTest

A cloud-based test management software designed to function with Agile development. Provides the ability to create a centralized test management system for easy communication and rapid deployment of the task to QA teams and developers.

 

QTP

HP Quick Test Professional is one of the leading tools for automating functional testing, is the flagship product of HP in its lineup. To develop automated tests, QTP uses the VBScript language.

Quality Assurance (QA)

A set of activities to ensure whether a product or service (that is being developed) meets specified requirements. Software QA involves the entire software development process monitoring and improving the process, making sure that any agreed-upon processes, standards and procedures are followed, and ensuring that problems are found and dealt with.

QuickCheck

QuickCheck is a tool for testing Haskell programs automatically. The programmer provides a specification of the program, in the form of properties which functions should satisfy, and QuickCheck then tests that the properties hold in a large number of randomly generated cases.

QUnit

A powerful, easy-to-use, JavaScript unit testing framework. It's used by the jQuery project to test its code and plugins but is capable of testing any generic JavaScript code. QUnit is especially useful for regression testing. 

Ranorex

An automation testing tool. It allows test engineers with limited (or no) coding knowledge to focus on testing rather than coding. Also allows to automate web application testing and both record user interactions and play them back to execute the tests.

Regression testing

A type of software testing aimed at detecting errors in the already tested areas of the source code. When, after making changes to the program, the work ceases to work, which should continue to work.
