The software development trend that shifts the target platform from the desktop to web, cloud and mobile applications has fostered the development of load testing services and performance testing tools on the web. It is an obvious option to use web-based load testing tools for applications that can be accessed by web users. This article presents the free offers from commercial web load testing services providers.
Software Testing Tools: Unit Testing Tools, Functional Testing Tools, Load Testing Tools
There are often discussions in the software testing domain if software testers should learn a programming language, but operating system knowledge is rarely mentioned. In this article, Svetlana Ganina explains how mastering Linux command line could help in daily software quality assurance activities.
It is difficult to maintain and evolve software systems and applications without some automated testing tools that help you making sure the changes are not breaking the existing features. This white paper from Indium Software presents you the best regression testing tools available in 2019.
Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) is an Agile approach that mixes requirement gathering, documentation and acceptance testing. The idea is that you start by writing human-readable sentences that describe a feature of your application and how it should work. Then you implement this behavior in software. This description can produce automated tests that will verify that the feature is implemented correctly. On the testing side, BDD tools provide you the features to perform functional or acceptance tests. There are many tools that implement the BDD concept for different languages, including PHP.
The Apache JMeter is an open source load testing tool developed by the Apache Foundation that can be used to test performance both on static and dynamic resources. It can be used to simulate a heavy load on a server and also some functional testing. JMeter has an open architecture that can be extended with plugins.
Test management is defined by Wikipedia a part of the software testing process that includes the planning of tests, their execution and the storage and analysis of the tests results. This is achieved also by the integration with requirements management tools, functional software testing tools like Selenium or Cucumber, continuous integration tools like Jenkins or TeamCity, bug tracking tools like Bugzilla or Mantis, project management tools like Trello Redmine or JIRA.
