QA Testing Services: Test Planning
The testing process is closely related to the development process. Accordingly, test planning is also dependent on the chosen model of software development. However, regardless of the development model used during test planning it is necessary to answer the several questions that determine this process:
- Who will be assigned to run the test (s), and at what stages? Product developers, independent group of testers or jointly?
- What components should be tested? Will all the components of the software be subjected to testing, or only those components that may cause the largest losses to the entire project?
- When should I test?
- Will it be a continuous process, activity, performed in special control points, or activity performed in the final stage of development?
- How should I test?
The developer is a role meant to carry out the activities aimed at creating a software product (SP). The tester is a role, which involves performing the activities that focus on improvement / maintenance of software quality. In this role a person should be able to correctly choose tests required for a particular purpose, construct the tests, conduct these tests and evaluate the results, namely provide effective qa testing services. Specific project doer can act both as a developer and as a tester. The start time for testing in the course of the project can be adjusted.
What components should be tested?
It happens that nothing should be tested at all (the reason for this is that all the components have been tested before) and it also may be necessary to test each component, including a line of code. In object-oriented programming the class is a basic component. In this case, the test cases are generated at class level. Classes taken from other projects or taken from libraries most often do not need to be retested. There are different strategies for choosing a subset of classes to be tested. Software testing service allows you to have your products tested while you diligently work on your project.
When should I test?
The components can be tested at the final stage, when they are integrated into a single executable module. The frequency of testing of a given project is determined by various considerations. It is possible to perform testing every day, remembering the fact that the earlier the problem is identified, the easier and cheaper its solution is. Therefore, do not delay to use QA services as soon as you start your project. Again, you can test the software component upon completion of its development.
