A Bug Report: Usage of Incorrect Words and Phrases

Of course, a well-done bug report is a documentation of the highest quality. Creation of a first-rate bug report is a very important task because it is the main point of communication between QA specialists, managers, developers, and clients (in some ways).  A well-done bug report doesn’t only make the interaction between the tester and developer better, but also saves all the company’s resources which have the task to create, modify and use it.

Additionally, a good bug report must have a well-written topic (Summary). Usually, a summary consists of about 120-150 symbols. It’s important to check if the created summary answers fully such questions: where’s the problem? How and under what circumstances is it reproduced?

Also, it’s important to understand, that while working with the problem, one should show the nature of the problem, – in other words, what exactly is working IMPROPERLY. It means, that tester shouldn’t use words and phrases which describe the problem lightly, figuratively, without detailed info, for example, nothing appears, works improperly, is set incorrectly and so on.

Examples of the incorrect description of a defect in a bug report

  • Nothing happens when going to some page;
  • Text block “About us” is displayed incorrectly.

If you write the bug description in such a way, the matter and message, which has to get one’s attention, won’t be clear. It will be hard to understand what exactly is working incorrectly and if it’s possible to fix this.

Work of QA specialist and developer is maximally complex and mutually reinforcing process. Sometimes it can happen, that those bugs which a tester mentions in the bug report, are being fixed by programmers in the process. It means, the bug that was described really complicatedly, leads to a big waste of time on its realizing and the next reproducing. As a result, the company loses some money under one project.

We can determine a special algorithm of actions, in the process of writing a really correct and useful Summary:

  1. Understand the origin of the problem personally! Before creating a Summary, QA specialist must see clearly where exactly the bug (defect) can be;
  2. Describe the bug in great detail, taking into account all details of its steps of reproduce;
  3. Delete all extra info from the description, for example, unnecessary conditions for appearing bug, specify all important details;
  4. Set all sentences in a logical order – What? Where? When?
  5. Check sentences for the compliance with all grammar rules;
  6. Shorten the sentence, if it’s too long. For example, you can use synonyms, some acronyms or common abbreviations.

Taking into account all, listed above, the good examples of great Summary are:

  • There’s an empty page in the “About the company” section, after clicking the “About us” button;
  • Navigation buttons aren’t seen in the “About us” section.

Naturally, sometimes during testing, QA specialist can find defects, which are difficult or impossible to describe, for example:

  • “Calculator” program gives wrong calculations after different arithmetic operations.

In such a situation it is hard to see what exactly the defect is. QA specialist only sees that result, he/she has got, is quite different from the expected one. That’s why if such situations happen, a defect is described in a “global” understanding. But it’s clear from the very beginning that bug is located in the hidden part of the code, which influences a final result. Because of it, a tester can use only some “forbidden words” in a bug report.

Moreover, it’s possible to describe the problem in more extended form.

For example, in a Summary and an actual result, QA specialist can write: “A message about the bug isn’t shown in the E-mail address input field after the user enters the incorrect data”.

But in the main description, we say that such a situation is reproduced in the process of data verifying with the empty field after the e-mail address was entered without @ symbol or domain name.

So, we don’t make a defect Summary longer, but at the same time, we specify maximally the conditions that lead to a bug displaying.

Also, we shouldn’t forget that during a bug report creation, we mention the same info in actual result description and the Summary; but in the expected result description, we show what exactly should be displayed by QA specialist’s opinion. When we describe the results, we use the same rule as during the Summary field filling (with the logic – what? Where? When?).

Here’re examples of the correct description of Expected results:

  • Content in the “Our services” section is displayed after clicking on the “About company” button;
  • The block of navigation buttons is displayed in the “About us” page.

Sometimes the incorrect words and phrases are used during the check-list development, but not in the defect description.

The difference is, that working on a check-list, one can make reference to the developed project models. Design and functioning logic of the software can change several times during its development, so bug localization can harm this and further projects.

For example, the description “The “products” section is displayed in the top of the browser viewport”.

If the block is moved the bottom left part after this, a tester can consider it as a bug.

But without specifics, it’ll be enough to check an actual model to verify that the block is displayed correctly.

It’s necessary to write in the bug report about the problem at the time of test performing

A description like “The “Production” section is displayed on the page incorrectly” doesn’t describe the matter of the defect inside some part of the tested product. The prior task of a qualitative bug report is to describe the bug from the most intelligible and correct side in order to make it clear for both: the tester of this software and QA specialist, who isn’t familiar with details of this project.

It means, that this is really important to show what the impropriety of the system’s behavior is.

Also, you can write such a message: “The “Production” sectional is displayed only on the part of the page (bottom part of the block is cut by screen’s and/or browser’s sides)”.

It depends on the situation when such a defect can be reproduced.

There’re a lot of variations when a list of incorrect meanings occupies much space, and it will be better to place a defect description in the expanded part. Only in such a case, the group of “incorrect words” can be used.

But in most cases tester must specify the problem as qualitatively as it’s possible.

Here’s another example of incorrect bug description:

«Page description is done incorrectly».

Why such a bug description is wrong? From this Summary, we can’t see what exactly the bug is. Is the texting part wider than a visible viewport (there’s a horizontal scroll bar)? Is it cut by half or done in the wrong format? Or maybe it has some grammar mistakes.

A bug – is not a riddle that a developer should solve. The perfect example of the bug is when the programmer doesn’t need to look at the screenshot or video to understand the matter of defect.

In conclusion, we can say that the quality of created bug report influences many things such as professional level of QA specialist, how quickly the developers can understand the problem, etc. It’s important to see and distinguish situations when the usage of incorrect words and phrases is acceptable and when it will be better to avoid them. The best way is to look at the bug report as a person who isn’t a professional IT specialist and has a vague image about implemented functionality. Also, we shouldn’t forget that process of finding a bug is only a part of work during the project development. But at the same time, its correct and accurate description is as important as some part of software creation.

Brief Guide about “Behavior Driven Development”

Behaviour Driven Development Testing is maybe the greatest source of confusion. At the point when connected to automate testing, BDD is an arrangement of best practices for composing incredible tests. BDD-Behaviour Driven Development can and should be, utilized together with TDD and unit testing techniques.

One of the key things Behaviour Driven Development model addresses is execution detail in unit tests. A typical issue with poor unit tests is they depend excessively on how the tested function is actualized.

This implies if you update the functionality, even without changing the sources of outputs and inputs, you should likewise update the test. This is an issue since it rolls out doing changes time-consuming.

Behaviour Driven Development is a product development process that initially is an extension of Test Driven Development. Behaviour Driven Development Testing utilizes examples to illustrate the behaviour of the system that is composed in an understandable and readable for everybody connected with the development.

Behaviour Driven Development approach centers around giving a mutual procedure and shared tools advancing communication among software engineers and business experts to team up on software development, with the point of delivering products with business esteem.

Subsequently, this Behaviour Driven Development tutorial will be valuable for software developers and in addition business examiners at each level.

Behaviour Driven Development testing plans to make development practices more simple and accessible to newcomers and testers alike yet moving the vocabulary from being test-based to behaviour based. It positions itself as a development paradigm, highlighting automation and communication as equivalent objectives.

In Behaviour Driven Development best practices, the behaviours speak to both the test cases and the specification.

Behavior Driven Development Methodology Features:
  • Moving from thinking in “tests” to thinking in “behaviour”
  • Collaboration between Business partners, Business Analysts, QA Team and engineers
  • Universal language, it is easy to understand
  • Driven by Business Value
  • Broadens Test Driven Development by using normal language that non-technical partners can understand.
  • BDD systems, for example, Cucumber or JBehave are an empowering agent, acting as a “bridge” between Business and Technical Language

Behaviour Driven Development process is prevalent and can be used for Unit level test cases and for UI test cases. Devices like RSpec or in .NET something like MSpec or SpecUnit is well known for Unit Testing following behaviour driven development techniques. On the other hand, you can compose BDD-style specification about UI communications. Expecting you’re assembling a web application, you’ll most likely utilize a browser automation library like WatiR/WatiN or Selenium, and script it either utilizing one of the structures.

Agile BDD

The behaviour driven development in agile is utilized to come to a common understanding on the pending specifications.

The accompanying steps are executed in Agile BDD –
  • The engineers and the product proprietor cooperatively compose pending details in a plain text editor.
  • The product proprietor indicates the behaviors they anticipate from the system.
  • The engineers fill the specification with these behavior details.
  • Make inquiries relying on their understanding of the system
  • The present system behaviors are considered to check whether the new element will break any of the current features.
Behaviour Driven Development Tools:
Cucumber:

Cucumber is a Java system for BDD, by its help for the specific arrangement of communications between colleagues and partners. Cucumber Behaviour Driven Development can execute plain-text functional specification as automated tests. The language that Cucumber understands is called Gherkin.

Cucumber supports composing specification in around 30 spoken languages, improving it simple to convey for teams outside of English-talking regions or those working on internationally targeted software.

SpecFlow:

SpecFlow is motivated by Cucumber structure in the Ruby on Rails world. Cucumber utilizes plain English in the Gherkin arrangement to express client stories. Once the client stories and their requirement are composed, the Cucumber pearl is utilized to execute those stores. SpecFlow conveys a similar idea to the .NET world and enables the engineer to express the feature in plain English dialect. It additionally permits composing specification in human understandable Gherkin format.

Unit Testing gives you the what. Test-Driven Development gives you the when. Behaviour Driven Development testing gives you the how. Despite the fact that you can utilize each separately, you should combine them for best outcomes as they supplement each other pleasantly.

We trust this fills in as a brief guide for make you consider a conceivable change to behaviour driven development principles. BDD gives us a chance to test and thinks about the code from the perspective of the entrepreneur. You need an attitude to execute ‘continuous examples’ as opposed to actualizing just ‘functionalities.’

Differentiating Test Strategy & Test Plan in Testing

Software testing is assisted by a good test strategy and test plan. In any large-scale projects, testing is a crucial part of the procedure. The careful and exact leading of testing guarantees that the project is up to norms and has no real defects. Before any testing is done, there are two documents that should be made and followed, the test strategy and test plan.

The fundamental difference between test strategy and test plan is their scope. A test strategy document covers the goals that should be accomplished and the way to be used. This is frequently an organization or task wide report. In correlation, a test plan document is a more localized report that deals with a particular part or segment of the project and follow the rules expressed in the test strategy in software testing.

In some smaller scale projects, the test strategy techniques are regularly found as an area of the test plan fundamentally as there is only one test plan in software testing, and it doesn’t appear to be practical to isolate the test strategy and management. In any case, in large projects with numerous tasks with numerous parts, there is one test strategy methodology and a modest bunch of test plan metrics; normally one for each significant segment.

test plan process is ordinarily done by the testing supervisor or testing lead. This is a mid-level position that requires a man who is personally learned of the part he is working with. Then again, the test strategy is normally done by the project manager or somebody higher since it requires a man who has a complete understanding of the project.

What is test strategy and test plan in software testing?
Test strategy in testing:

Test Strategy is characterized as an arrangement of managing rule that illuminates test plan and controls how testing should be finished.

Test plan report:

A Test Plan is characterized as a document which traces the extension, target, technique, and weight on a software product testing project.

Test Strategy and Test Plan is a noticeable disarray among numerous levels of QA Aspirants

Below is a detailed difference between test strategy and test plan in software testing:

Test Plan Methodology:
  • A test plan for software project can be characterized as a report that characterizes the scope, goal, approach, and accentuation on a product testing attempt.
  • Test Plan Elements incorporate Test Plan id, features to be tested, test procedures, testing tasks, Features fail and pass criteria, test expectations, duties, and timetable, and so forth.
  • A test plan goals are completed by a testing manager or lead that portrays how to test, when to test, who will test and what to test.
  • Test Plan Development portrays the detail.
  • Test Plan approach can change.
  • Test Plan quality assurance is done to decide conceivable issues and conditions keeping in mind the end goal to distinguish the risks.
  • A test plan exists exclusively
  • It is characterized at the project level.
Test Strategy Software Testing:
  • Test strategy approach is an arrangement of rules that clarify test plan and decides how testing should be finished.
  • Test strategy components incorporate goals and scope, documentation positions, test processes, team announcing structure, customer communication methodology, and so on.
  • Test strategy methods are done by the project manager. It says what kind of system to follow and which module to test.
  • Test Strategy in software engineering portrays the general methodologies.
  • Test Strategy model can’t be changed.
  • It is a long-term plan of action. You can extract data that does not project particular and place it into test approach.
  • In the smaller project, a test strategy metrics is frequently found as a segment of a test plan
  • It is set at the association level and can be utilized by multiple projects.

As said above. Test strategy matrix should not be edited all the time since it sets a few principles for test plan and if guidelines are adjusted as often as possible then it ends up hard adhering to a specific arrangement and changing arrangement oftentimes will influence the quality of the testing. Some of the time when small necessities are transformed, we just need to update the test plan yet test strategy continues as before.

This is a standard way to deal with getting ready to make test plan and test strategy document, yet things can change organization-to-organization.

Crowdsourced Testing Benefiting the Mobile Apps

Throughout the last few years, crowdsourced software testing has turned into a more famous complimentary strategy to guarantee a high quality of mobile applications, sites, online shops and Internet of Thingsapplications.

Software organizations some of the time look to outside help for money-saving funds in their mobile testing process. Maybe they don’t have the ability in-house, or perhaps they require scope outside of typical business hours. Or on the other hand, it may be the case that outsourcing is a decent alternative as outsourced software testers frequently offer low-cost rates than in-house software testers. They can be advised and scaled up quicker than the typical procuring process.

Thus, the comparable choice to outsourcing is crowdsourced testing, which may be a superior arrangement in a case; you require an option that is cheaper than outsourcing that can scale up or down immediately.

How about we discuss what is crowdsourced software testing and functions alongside its advantages and potential issues. In only a couple of minutes, you’ll see whether or not it’s the right choice for your mobile testing team.

What is Crowdsourced Software Testing?

To understand it better, a crowdsourced QA testing is a term used to depict the act of outsourcing softwaretesting to an extensive gathering of individuals situated over the globe, as well called ‘the crowd’. It’s an expanding pattern in the software development industry, which some time ago depended only on experts or smaller internal groups of professional testers.

How Crowdsourced Testing Works?

The crowdsourced testing model can work in a few ways. Testers may utilize their own devices and conditions to test the software product, or they may get to virtual machines or device emulators by means of the crowdsourced app testing platform. In a few models, the crowdsourced testing companies may deal with the testers, while in different situations the testers may connect directly with the client to get directions and give input.

Testers access the product by means of a platform and manually perform tests of the software product as asked for by the client. These tests can go from expansive exploratory testing to very particular functional confirmation testing. The testers give feedback on the software product, for the most part including a rundown of bugs and defects found while executing the tests.

How can it profit organizations?

Software development organizations of today confront progressively higher request regarding product quality, which is the reason testing is so essential. Each product should be scoured for bugs and tested for usefulness, ease of use and security to guarantee it will convey an ideal result upon launch.

In suitable settings, crowdsourced mobile testing helps address these issues by supporting a model of conveyance that is less expensive, quicker and more compelling mostly:

  • Decreases cost by limiting the extent of your internal group.
  • Gives an assorted variety of languages, environment, location and devices for more viable testing.
  • Each cycle can be immediately designated to a huge number of testers in hours, not days.
  • The specialist testers can be crowdsourced to meet particular prerequisites.
  • Includes real devices and real customers, not laboratory conditions.
  • For cycles where payment is per defect found, cost straightforwardly identifies with an output.

Therefore, it’s an expanding trend in the software development industry, with more expert testers taking part, giving profitable input and providing details regarding defects inside days, crowdsourced usability testing offers higher testing quality, in less time, at a decreased cost.

So, would you like to convey betters applications, sites, and software for your clients and yourself? Need your application or site tested rapidly and economically?

Then, TestOrigen is the only best-crowdsourced testing company that will provide you all types of software testing at affordable rates with much more benefits.

Best Practices to Perform Regression Testing
