In most of your software testing activities, you need data. Sometimes you can rely on a small sample, but if you want to perform some load testing or if you want to test a feature that needs to produce a multipage invoice, then you start to need more than just two or three occurrences. Test data generators are tools that can help you in this task with the automatic generation of hundreds or thousands of customers, products or accounts items with different attributes for their id, email, name, etc.
Software Testing Tools: Unit Testing Tools, Functional Testing Tools, Load Testing Tools, Performance Testing Tools, Agile Testing Tools, DevOps
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 and cloud-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.
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.
BugBug is a cloud-based, low-code test automation tool that is an ideal choice for testers, QA specialists, developers, and product managers in Agile teams to enable E2E testing.
Test management is defined by Wikipedia a part of the software testing process that includes the planning of tests and test cases, 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 (with the Gerkhin language), continuous integration tools like Jenkins or TeamCity, bug tracking tools like Bugzilla or Mantis, project management tools like Trello, Redmine or JIRA.
The shift towards mobile platforms is a strong trend currently and Android is the most widely adopted mobile OS with an estimated market share above 80% in 2014. You should naturally test all the apps developed for Android and a large number of open source testing tools and test automation frameworks have been developed to achieve this goal.
