Introduction of Software Testing
The Software Testing really plays a major role in the software development team to recognize the difficulties in process very well. SOFTWARE TESTING is performed to check the quality for the end client. People who are working for this role are called as testers and mainly role is bigger than testing since it’s all about giving the input to the final product for the quality.
Importance of Software Testing
Main purpose which is derived for the Software Testing is to give the best quality for the product. The major role of SOFTWARE TESTING involves checking there should be no discrepancy in the software development process anywhere throughout the process. Quality should not get sacrificed at all. Role of SOFTWARE TESTING is to get the requirements and design documents from the solutions architect and functional architect and adapt in the form of test cases and test scripts according to the test plan. There is a document called test plan and it’s consist of all information about the system and for each test cases. All the test cases gets validate thoroughly to check or find the defects in the application or system.
SMEs (Subject matter experts) are the one who approve the test plan and they signify the standards for the closure of the project. Test cases should be agreed with the acceptance standards and all the scripts which are mentioned in the test plan which is really essential for the closure of the project and to prove that all the test cases have been performed with respective all the results in form of pass and fail.
Test cases are really important to generate from the requirements and design templates. Then system can be testing thoroughly. Any feature/s can be included in the test case document it can be related with usability or functionality of the application.
There are respective test scripts which get converted into test cases and it should be validated properly. There are specific test scripts which tells what to do and what should happen in the application after executing them. Detailed information about the design and architecture can be understood with the help of test scripts in the software development process.
Hence, SOFTWARE TESTING is one of the major parts of the software development process and it should be carried out effectively for the quality of the product. I hope above mentioned part can help everyone that what is the role of Software Testing.
