Debugging versus Scenario Testing

Recently someone in a class asked about the difference between debugging and scenario testing given the fact that many errors that need to be fixed must be completed in the code. If we make the assumption that we are doing a calculation of some sort or running an algorithm then the following applies. During User… Continue reading Debugging versus Scenario Testing

Negative testing typically means that the system can handle invalid input or unexpected user behaviour. However, if the system responds by rejecting the data and providing an error… Continue reading Negative Testing

Examples of Verification in Software Testing

In our last blog post, we included a list of Examples of Verification without going into too much detail. In this blog we will take a couple of those verification list items and expand on them. The examples of verification that most tend to impact software testers with the best return are Test Plans, Test Cases, Test Data… Continue reading Examples of Verification in Software Testing
