Software testing is a process, to assess the functionality of a software application with an aim to check whether the formulated software meets the specified requirements and to identify the defects to ensure that the final product is free from defects in to produce the quality product.
Software Testing helps to Save Money
Software Testing has a number benefits but the most important benefit of testing is cost-effectiveness. If your product is well tested it will benefit you in the long term. Software development is a lengthy process and if bugs identified during the early period of development, it costs much less to fix these bugs. That is why it is very important to get the software tested during early stages of development. In order to benefit yourself budget-wise, Getting testers , technically educated and experienced for a software testing is just like an investment.
Software Testing Provides Security
Many a times user information is stolen or the hackers try to get into the software to get access to the data unethically and use it for their benefit. That’s why the users are always in search of the trusted products that they can rely on. As a user of many applications and softwares , we always look for products/services where we can provide our information with confidence and with full safety; perhaps testing is necessary to keep a check on any defect which can cost the customer in future. Our personal information and what we do with that information mus remain as private as possible, especially using the services where it is a vulnerability, for example, security details, banking information, etc.
Two Major Types of Software Testing:
Functional testing is a type of the automated testing which handles the functioning of the application, its relation to the users and the rest of the system. Traditionally, functional testing is performed by a team of testers which is autonomous of the developers.
Unlike unit testing tests which keeps a check on what an application segment does and how it does it, functional testing tests concerns only about what the application does. A functional test is not concerned about the internal details of an application.
Functional testing is the ‘the customer test’. Functional testing commences as early as there is a function to test and extends through the completion of the application till the first customer is in contact.
The term, “the customer test”, can be described as – functional testing is imitating a user and analyzing an expected output. But the real user is not just someone feeding in commands, into the software. The actual user will be running the application on a system, at the same time with other applications, having user load fluctuations . The application must be crash resistant and free from any defect which inhibits the user experience.
Functional testing is mainly used to confirm that the end-user or company requires a piece of software to deliver the same output. Typically, functional testing includes assessing each software feature and comparing it with the company demands. Software is tested by offering some associated input to the software so that the output can be assessed to see how it conforms, relates or differs from its basic needs. In addition, functional testing also checks the usability of the software, such as making sure navigation features work as needed.
Non-Functional Testing is a kind of software testing for testing non-functional parameters such as software reliability, load testing, efficiency and responsibility. Non-functional testing’s main aim is to evaluate the software system’s reading speed according to non-functional parameters. Before functional testing, the parameters of non-functional testing are never evaluated. As functional testing, non-functional testing is also very essential because it plays a vital role in customer satisfaction. Non-functional testing, for instance, would be to assess how many individuals can operate on any software concurrently.
Non-Functional Testing also involves load testing. It’s main aim is to check whether the speed of the software is according to the non-functional parameters. It has a very important role in the generation of the final outcome.
