1. What is Software Testing?

A: Software testing is a process where a software system is evaluated for checking its different attributes to ensure the software is up to standards for whoever will use it.

2. Why is testing done?

A: Software is tested before release as an assurance to users of its quality from the developing agency. Faults detected before release can be corrected quicker and much better than those detected after release. Also, testing saves development time, and testers can provide a different insight from the developers into the working of the software.

3. How are verification and validation different?

A: Verification of software is a process oriented process answering the question “is the product being made correctly?”, while validation of software follows a product specific approach answering the question “is the correct product being made?”

4. What is meant by SDLC?

A: A commonly used term, SDLC or Software Development Life Cycle are all activities performed while software development. SDLC includes requirement gathering, designing, coding, testing, deployment, and maintenance phases in that order.

A: Test Bed is the environment where an application is tested. It includes all software (OS, other software) and hardware requirements of the software being tested.

6. What is Test Plan?

A: Test Plan refers to a document describing the scope and approach of tests, required resources, and estimated time. Test Plan is derived from the Software Requirement Specifications document.

7. What is meant by Test Case?

A: Test Case is a document containing a range of conditions of requirements, inputs, and expected outputs from the software. It is used to check whether the application conforms to the required specifications.

8. What is meant by Test Scenario?

A: A test scenario is used for end-to-end testing of an application. It contains many test cases.

9. What is meant by Test Script?

11. What is defect?

A: A defect is a fault in the program causing it to deviate from requirement, which is detected during production, that is, after the software goes live.

12. What is meant by defect density?

A: Defect Density is simply the density of defects in the software system. It is calculated by dividing the number of defects found by the number of lines of code (whole program, or method, or class).

13. What is meant by defect severity?

A: Defect severity is a measure of how serious the defect is in terms of how much it affects the functionality of the program.

14. What doe defect priority mean?

A: Defect priority is the measure of how urgently the defect needs to be fixed. It is normally set on a scale ranging from P0 to P3, with P0 having the highest priority.

15. What is meant by blocker?

  • Unit Testing: Each module of the software is tested in the first level of testing.
  • Integration Testing: Groups of related modules are tested in the second level to check interaction.
  • System Testing: The completed software is tested in the third level of testing.
  • Acceptance Testing: The final level of testing is done by the potential users of the software.
