SOFTWARE TESTING TERMS – V

26 Apr SOFTWARE TESTING TERMS – V

81. Recovery Testing: Testing technique which evaluates how well a system recovers from crashes, hardware failures, or other catastrophic problems. It is performed by the testing teams.

82. Requirements Testing: Testing technique which validates that the requirements are correct, complete, unambiguous, and logically consistent and allows designing a necessary and sufficient set of test cases from those requirements. It is performed by QA teams.

83. Security Testing: A process to determine that an information system protects data and maintains functionality as intended. It can be performed by testing teams or by specialized security-testing companies.

84. Sanity Testing: Testing technique which determines if a new software version is performing well enough to accept it for a major testing effort. It is performed by the testing teams.

85. Scenario Testing: Testing activity that uses scenarios based on a hypothetical story to help a person think through a complex problem or system for a testing environment. It is performed by the testing teams.

86. Scalability Testing: Part of the battery of non-functional tests which tests a software application for measuring its capability to scale up – be it the user load supported, the number of transactions, the data volume etc. It is conducted by the performance engineer.

87. Statement Testing: White box testing which satisfies the criterion that each statement in a program is executed at least once during program testing. It is usually performed by the development team.

88. Static Testing: A form of software testing where the software isn’t actually used it checks mainly for the sanity of the code, algorithm, or document. It is used by the developer who wrote the code.

89. Stability Testing: Testing technique which attempts to determine if an application will crash. It is usually conducted by the performance engineer.

90. Smoke Testing: Testing technique which examines all the basic components of a software system to ensure that they work properly. Typically, smoke testing is conducted by the testing team, immediately after a software build is made .

91. Storage Testing: Testing type that verifies the program under test stores data files in the correct directories and that it reserves sufficient space to prevent unexpected termination resulting from lack of space. It is usually performed by the testing team.

92. Stress Testing: Testing technique which evaluates a system or component at or beyond the limits of its specified requirements. It is usually conducted by the performance engineer.

93. Structural Testing: White box testing technique which takes into account the internal structure of a system or component and ensures that each program statement performs its intended function. It is usually performed by the software developers.

94. System Testing: The process of testing an integrated hardware and software system to verify that the system meets its specified requirements. It is conducted by the testing teams in both development and target environment.

95. System integration Testing: Testing process that exercises a software system’s coexistence with others. It is usually performed by the testing teams.

96. Top Down Integration Testing: Testing technique that involves starting at the stop of a system hierarchy at the user interface and using stubs to test from the top down until the entire system has been implemented. It is conducted by the testing teams.

97. Thread Testing: A variation of top-down testing technique where the progressive integration of components follows the implementation of subsets of the requirements. It is usually performed by the testing teams.

98. Upgrade Testing: Testing technique that verifies if assets created with older versions can be used properly and that user’s learning is not challenged. It is performed by the testing teams.

99. Unit Testing: Software verification and validation method in which a programmer tests if individual units of source code are fit for use. It is usually conducted by the development team.

100. User Interface Testing: Type of testing which is performed to check how user-friendly the application is. It is performed by testing teams.
