Highlighting key testing principles
The main objective of conducting software testing is to eliminate possible bugs and to enhance the overall quality of the software in terms of many aspects, such as performance, user experience (UX), and security.
But before starting any testing activities, there must be some guidelines or principles in place to make sure that the outcome of these activities is aligned with the main objectives of testing. Here, in this section, we will highlight some of the key principles of software testing that we need to consider in our software solution, as follows:
- All test cases should be prepared based on customer requirements; otherwise, we will be testing against the wrong requirements. Each feature or function in a system should be tested with one or multiple test cases.
- Some types of software testing such as performance testing and acceptance testing should be performed by subject-matter experts (SMEs) such as quality assurance (QA) engineers...
