Testing Terminology-A B C D

A

  • Application: Software is known as application or build while being developed and tested.

  • Automation Testing: Running the test cases with the help of automation tool is known as Automation testing.

  • Acceptance Testing

  • Ad hoc testing: Testing the application randomly without any help of written test cases is known as Ad-hoc Testing.

  • Agile Testing

  • Alpha Testing: Testing the software as a whole like an end user to ensure smooth overall operation is known as alpha testing.

  • Accessibility Testing

  • Actual Behavior

  • Actor

  • Audit

B

  • Black Box Testing: Testing of external behavior of an application is known as Black Box testing.

  • Build: Software is called as build while being developed and tested.

  • Bottom Up Integration Testing:

  • Bug: A mismatch between the expected behavior and the actual behavior of any component, module or sub module in an application is called as bug/fault/defect.

  • Bug Report: Description of a bug in documented form.

  • Bug Density: Average number of bugs detected in a module or sub module.

  • Bug age: Time gap between bug reporting and bug closure.

  • Bug Severity: It is a measure of impact i.e. how bad the bug may affect the application

  • Bug Priority: is a measure of time i.e. when to fix.

  • Bug Life Cycle: Journey of a bug from the time it is discovered till it is fixed is known as Bug life Cycle i.e. from status ‘NEW’ to status ‘CLOSED’.

  • Bug Tracking Tool

  • Boundary Value Analysis (BVA): BVA is also a black box testing technique to test either side of both boundaries.

  • Business Requirement Specification (BRS).

  • Beta Testing: Testing of the software by actual users is known as Beta testing.

  • Bing Bang/System Integration Testing: In this type of integration approach, developers interconnect the modules once all are developed and unit tested.

  • Bottom up Testing.

  • Basis Path Testing.

  • Build Verification Test (BVT)

  • Be Bugging

  • Buddy Testing.

C

  • Cyclomatic Complexity

  • CAST

  • Component Testing

  • Coding

  • Code Walk through

  • Code Inspection

  • Capacity Testing: Estimating the maximum limit where the system may break is known as capacity testing/scalability testing.

  • Control Structure Testing: In this type of testing, a developer checks correctness of program execution i.e. input and output state of every statement.

  • Compatibility Testing: To validate the software on client expected platform i.e. various operating systems, browsers, networks is known as compatibility testing.

  • Conformance Testing

  • Configuration Testing: To validate efficiency of software to support various hardware like printers, scanners, topologies etc is known as configuration testing.

  • Concurrence Testing

  • Cause Effect Graph: It is also a black box testing technique which helps in deriving test cases by identifying causes and effects.

  • Check List

  • Clear Box Testing

  • Comparative/Competitive Testing: To compare the software build with its previous version or with similar competitive software’s in market is known as comparative testing.

  • Completion Criteria

  • CMMI: Capability Maturity Model is a quality standard developed by Software Engineering Institute (SEI) to assess capabilities of the organizations in delivering quality software.

D

  • Defect: A mismatch between the expected behavior and the actual behavior of any component, module or sub module in an application is called as bug/fault/defect/error.

  • De Bugging

  • Data Driven Testing

  • Depth Testing

  • Defect Density: Average number of bugs detected in a module or sub module.

  • Defect Age: Time gap between bug reporting and bug closure.

  • Defect Tracking System

  • Dynamic Testing

  • Documentation Testing: Here a tester verifies simplicity, correctness and completeness of user manuals for the particular software.

  • Driver
