Alpha Testing: Alpha Testing is like performing usability testing, which is normally done by the in-house developers. On rare occasions Alpha Testing is done by the client or an outsider. Once the alpha testing version is released, it’s then called the Alpha Release.
Conventional Testing is based on the conventions/testing standards planed as per Quality Management System to maintain standards. Unconventional Testing is testing performed without any conventions. Main differences between Conventional Testing and Uncoventional Testing:
Localization is the process of customizing a software application that was originally designed for a domestic market so that it can be released in foreign markets. Localization testing process means testing of a product adapted for usage in a foreign market.
There are varied organizations facing problem to maintain unreliable automated tests because it is troublesome and time consuming. So, we require changing these low-quality tests into reliable, trustworthy and easy to maintain tests which will underlies software changes.
Priority and severity level of defects needed to be defined as the development team cannot resolve all defects simultaneously. The test team needs to indicate how soon they want to get the defect fixed, and how big the impact on the functionality of the application under test is. Classification levels are defined as under:
Software testing is a process of analyzing or operating software for the purpose of finding bugs. As we know, testing can involve either “analyzing” or “operating” software. Test activities that are associated with analyzing the products of software development are called static testing.
Bug can be defined as the abnormal behavior of the software. No software exists without a bug. The elimination of bugs from the software depends upon the efficiency of testing done on the software. In software development process, the bug has a life cycle. The bug should go through the life cycle to be closed.
