Software Testing

Software Testing is an investigation conducted to provide our stakeholders with information about the quality of the product or service under test, with respect to the context in which it is intended to operate. STEPS Technologies test techniques include, but are not limited to, the process of executing a program or application with the intent of finding software bugs. Software Testing can also be stated as the process of validating and verifying that a software program/application/product. It is an integral and critical phase of software development project. We dovetail the right blend of our extensive experience and sophisticated tools for performing comprehensive software testing.

STEPS Technologies is well-equipped with hi-tech infrastructure and planned methodology to perform offshore and onshore software testing in a controlled environment.

STEPS Technologies provides you the following software testing method, methodology and services:

Testing methods:

  • Black Box
  • White Box testing

Black Box: Without any knowledge of internal implementation

White Box: The tester has access to the internal data structures and algorithms including the code that implement these.

STEPS Technologies has employed a various processes of thorough investigation for offshore software testing. Our Software test engineers perform a number of mock tasks with the software behavior. STEPS Technologies test engineers are well-equipped to handle both Black and white Box test methods by using manual and automation testing based on test plans using state-of-the-art software testing.

STEPS Technologies following are the extensive testing methodology.

Testing Methodologies:

  • Requirement analysis: It involves establishing the testing processes and software environments where software testing can be performed.
  • Design analysis: It determines the aspects of the design that can be tested and the parameters to be used by the concerned engineers.
  • Test planning: Test strategy, test plans, and test beds are prepared.
  • Test development: Involves designing the test procedures, test scenarios, test cases, and test scenarios.
  • Test execution: This involves executing the software based on the test plans and test cases.
  • Test reporting: Generation of metrics and making final reports on their test results.
  • Re-testing the defects: Thorough testing of the software again after the developers have fixed the bugs.

Testing methods

Types of Testing:

Unit Testing :

Unit testing is a software development process in which the smallest testable parts of an application, called units, are individually and independently scrutinize for proper operation.

Unit testing involves only those characteristics that are vital to the performance of the unit under test. This encourages developers to modify the source code without immediate concerns about how such changes might affect the functioning of other units or the program as a whole. Once all of the units in a program have been found to be working in the most efficient and error-free manner possible, larger components of the program can be evaluated by means of integration testing.

Unit testing must be done with an awareness that it may not be possible to test a unit for every input scenario that will occur when the program is run in a real-world environment.

Integration Testing :

Integration testing is a process in which program units are combined and tested as groups in multiple ways. Integration testing can expose problems with the interfaces among program components before trouble occurs in real-world program execution.

STEPS Technologies follows the 2 major standard ways of carrying out an integration testing.

  • Bottom-up method
  • Top-down method

Bottom-up : integration testing begins with unit testing, followed by tests of progressively higher-level combinations of units called modules or builds.

Top-down : integration testing the highest-level modules is tested first and progressively lower-level modules are tested after that.

System Testing :

System testing of software or hardware is testing conducted on a complete integrated system to evaluate the system's compliance with its specified requirements. System testing falls within the scope of black box testing.

As a rule, system testing takes, as its input, all of the "integrated" software components that have successfully passed integration testing and also the software system itself integrated with any applicable hardware system(s). The purpose of System testing is to detect any inconsistencies between the software units that are integrated together (called assemblages) or between any of the assemblages and the hardware. System testing is a more limiting type of testing; it seeks to detect defects both within the "inter-assemblages" and also within the system as a whole.

Performance Testing :

STEPS Technologies Performance Testing covers a broad range of engineering or functional evaluations where a material, product, system, or person is not specified by detailed material or component specification.

We do software performance testing to determine the speed or effectiveness of a computer, network, software program or device. We have a quantitative test lab to carry out performance testing, our testing team use to do Performance testing along with stress testing.

Performance Testing Tools @ STEPS Technologies:

  • Load runner
  • QTP (Quick test professional)
  • Win runner
  • Silk Tool.

Security Testing :

Security Testing is the Process to determine that an IS (Information System) protects data and maintains functionality as intended.

The 6 basic security concepts that STEPS Technologies follows which doing security testing are

  • Confidentiality
  • Integrity
  • Authentication
  • Authorization
  • Availability
  • Non-repudiation

Ad hoc Testing :

Ad hoc testing is a commonly used term for software testing performed without planning and documentation. But Still STEPS Technologies follows a process of documenting all the Ad hoc Test cases.

Regression Testing :

Regression testing can be used not only for testing the correctness of a program, but often also for tracking the quality of its output. For instance, in the design of a compiler, regression testing should track the code size, simulation time and time of the test suite cases.

In STEPS Technologies regression testing has been performed by a software quality assurance team after the development team has completed work. The defects have been addressed by developer and it will be fixed.

Acceptance Testing :

RAcceptance testing generally involves running a suite of tests on the completed system. Each individual test, known as a case, exercises a particular operating condition of the user's environment or feature of the system, and will result in a pass or fail. There is generally no degree of success or failure. The test environment is usually designed to be identical, or as close as possible, to the anticipated user's environment, including extremes of such. Acceptance Tests/Criterion (in Agile Software Development) are usually created by business customers and expressed in a business domain language. These are high level tests to test the completeness of a user story or stories 'played' during any sprint/iteration. These tests are created ideally through collaboration between business customers.
