Stages of the IoT testing: definition, characteristics

What is IoT?

IoT (Internet of Things) – is a special ecosystem, that combines a lot of various useful components: route vehicles, home automated system, medical equipment, different microchips and so on. These and other components can keep and send information. With the help of such technology, you can easily manage different devices remotely.

Examples of IoT-devices

All the IoT objects can be divided into such kinds:

  • Portable systems. Different fitness bands and/or Apple Watches are easily synchronized with other portable devices to transmit the data. With their help, we can exchange the data, watch some info about our health: heart rate, organism activity, sleep cycle, etc.;
  • Web system and web development. CitySense utility can collect the data about lighting, and automatically turn on/off the outside light. There’re a lot of available programs, which manage traffic lights remotely, and can tell the interested people about the number of parking spaces;
  • Today there’re special systems that can watch human health and are actively used in the hospitals. The basis of their functionality is approximate data, such services can easily control necessary medicine strength. For example, UroSense utility can monitor the liquid level in the organism by itself, and if it’s needed, this program can raise it. Doctors get to know about the patient’s condition through a wireless network.
Opportunities, which are open thanks to IoT-things
  1. RFID (modern radiofrequency identification), EPC (electronic program code);
  2. NFC (“near field communication”) – allows two devices to interact on a smooth basis. This technology can be found in devices as a function for contactless transactions.
  3. This is actively used in situations with a short range and in systems of portable devices.
  4. Z-Wave. Modern radio low-frequency technologies, that are used for managing the home automatics, light and so on;
  5. Wi-Fi. It’s probably the most popular network for IoT system (exchange of data, messages, and information).
IoT testing

Let’s take a look at the illustrative example, in order to understand correctly the main point of IoT functioning. There’s a modern system to analyze medical indications, which can monitor the human health conditions (heart rate, temperature and a sufficient level of a liquid in an organism). All information is displayed in a special structured system: there’re web files and libraries. Doctors decide themselves, should the patient take medicine or not.

In practice, there’re some common approaches to test the productivity of internal IoT design. Next, we will sort them out.

Usability
  • A full usability testing should be done for every produced device and ecosystem;
  • According to a designed medical gadget, it has to be totally simple and easy to use;
  • It’s important to make a very clever system, which could not only send the client a message, but create reports in case of errors, and inform a user about it in due time;
  • A system should have a special option, that will record an event, which will be totally clear for a final user of this product. If it’s impossible to add such a parameter, all the info about the event should be saved into the database;
  • The functions of processing the incoming information and data exchange between developed products are tested very carefully.
Safety of IoT functioning
  • Information is the main basis for the activity of connected peripherals. That’s why it is so important to test the program for the possibility of unauthorized access to the database. You have to check how qualitatively user data are encrypted;
  • In case of UI, it’s needed to check, if it has security, based on a safe password.
System configuration
  • The operative ability to connect to the network and general IoT functioning is very important because we’re talking about a special system, applied in a medical field;
  • There’s checking of an available network, where data transmission can be done;
  • All scripts are explored when there’s no connection. No matter what’s the system complexity, there’s a chance that sometimes its status can be offline. If the technology isn’t working temporarily, employees of a medical institution should know about it. In other words, they will be able to monitor a patient’s health condition even when the system is in a sleep mode.
Productivity
  • You should take into account the fact of importance for healthcare to use just this system;
  • Testing with 5-10 patients, who have 5-10 devices;
  • To test the program for general system analysis: actual load, energy consumption, temperature range.
Testing for compatibility

Such a graph can be always found in any check-list for IoT product testing.

  • Compatibility of actual OS versions and their integral components;
  • Cross-browser compatibility;
  • Devices of different generations;
  • Types of connections (Bluetooth or Wi-Fi).
Testing before release
  • Pilot testing – is an “important tick” in the check-list;
  • Only tests in a laboratory can tell us that product is totally functioning with the stated parameters;
  • During the pilot testing, the amount of users is strictly defined. They do various manipulations with the utility and give their own opinion;
  • Such opinions are very important, making the released product much better.
Testing of program consistency
  • Application, which system can monitor the current patient’s condition, should pass a lot of tests on technical consistency;
  • It can happen, that system application passes all stages of testing, but “fail” the testing before the final release;
  • It’s logically correct to test the product on its consistency to technical standards before the stage of designing and adding.
Testing of new versions
  • IoT – is an original combination of many libraries, OS and developed software;
  • During any updating – regardless of its nature (system, or separate library) – it’s necessary to do the regression testing. Specialists make corrections of tests strategy in order to avoid the difficulties that can happen during product updating in the future.
Difficulties that can be during IoT testing
Problem with the soft

IoT – is a special system, inside which different services and structural components closely interact. Not only the fact of developed soft productivity is important, but also hardware: special sensors, transducers, and gateways.

It’s not enough to check technical serviceability only. Every component is connected to other elements. The architecture of IoT technologies is very multi-faceted, unlike the one of traditional web products.

Used model of components and program interaction

All components of one network should interact hassle-free in real time. In practice, it is really hard to do. Hence, there’re additional difficulties, which closely interact with IoT (client data safety, compatibility with different software and manipulation with software updates).

Data check, coming in real time

If you want to manage such information, you need to work hard. It becomes even more difficult because the system can be used in completely different ways and in a special format, that can’t be counted during testing.

UI

IoT system includes many components, which are set on completely different operating platforms. Testing is possible only in that case when you can “run the functionality” on the maximum number of available devices.

Continuous network access

For constant and qualitative functioning of IoT components, it is very important to have a proven network. Data exchange speed has to grow all the time. Any IoT architecture needs to be tested at different conditions of signal transmission, with different internet speed. For example, you can test the network load with the help of virtual networks, which give some information about load testing. But actual data – is always original and unique scripts, and testers team can’t know where exactly difficulties will appear.

Tools and tools utilities for the IoT testing

There’re many tools and utilities, which are commonly used in the testing of global IoT.

They can be divided into groups according to the developed product destination:

  1. Wireshark – is an effective app with the open program code. It is used for analysis of traffic in graphic form, data of input host. Tcdump – although this product doesn’t have GUI, it can do similar actions like Wireshark (client can show current TCP/IP packets, which are passed inside the selected network);
  2. “Hardwire”. JTAG Dongle – is an app, which system can easily find bugs in a program code, and it displays all edits on a step-by-step Digital Storage Oscilloscope – is an opportunity to check some event on the base of notes.

Software Defined Radio – is an opportunity of qualitative emulation of the transducer and transmitter for plenty of allocated gateways.

IoT technologies – is a dynamic modifying field and many promising ways to develop some useful things.  In the near future, IoT can become one of the fundamental aspects of work for many quality assurance organizations. Network architecture, apps for smart devices, specialized linking modules – all these and even more things play a key role in understanding and modification of different technologies and components, which make our life much easier.

Conclusion

The methodology of IoT testing can be different depending on the designed ecosystem or architecture.

It is very hard to test the Internet of things, but also, this activity is very exciting and useful. It’s some kind of “undeveloped space” with a lot of technical opportunities – there’re so many different systems, devices, and program components, which “in good hands”, can be used for the human well-being!

Top 10 most popular negative test cases

Usage of test cases allows checking the productivity of developed software in case of incorrect data coming to the system or there is a wrong behavioral logic with components. Such test cases must be executed during general testing.

Any negative testing is important and equal to the positive one. That’s because all of us are people who can make a mistake. And you can’t get rid of the human factor.

If a client visits a special site and buys something there, he/she will probably want to visit such a portal again. But if the client makes a mistake while buying something (for example, pastes the phone number in the field where should be the letters only), then he/she will most likely want to see a tolerant system message that such an action isn’t recommended.

Detailed negative testing is performed for these exact situations. What is negative testing? It’s when incorrect data is deliberately inputted into a system. We enter it and watch on web product’s reaction, whether it shows correct error messages or not.

How should such tests be created?

Further, we’ll talk about top 10 most popular negative test scenario that can be used during the testing of any web product.

Embedded Single Quote

Many SQL-requests of the database have some problems with single quotes inside the request’s body (for example, Jones’s bar).

Required Data Entry

All fields for necessary data input should be clearly displayed in the specification of the developed product.

You need to test forms with different fields that should be compulsory and can’t be saved without information inside them.

Field Size Test

A maximal number of symbols in each field should be also written in the specification of the developed product (for example, the number of symbols in the field with user’s nickname shouldn’t be more than 45).

You must check if the component doesn’t allow inputting or saving more symbols that are mentioned inside the approved specification. Also, you shouldn’t forget that these fields have to work correctly and validate the input value as well as warn a client about set system limitations (for example, through texts or messages about an error).

Numeric Bounds Test

Some numeric fields can have special numeral bounds. Such limits can be directly in the specification of the developed product or be clear from the product logic (for example, you test productivity, that’s connected with an interest charge to client’s account; from this, it is clear that such an interest accrual shouldn’t take negative values).

Test the situations when the web product shows system messages about the errors in the cases when the input value is outside acceptable numeric bounds (for example, there always should be a text message about the error when the user entered the value from 9 to 51 symbols in the field where set limits are from 10 to 50, or he/she entered the negative value where the system allows using only positive symbols and their total).

Numeric Limits Test

More than a half of databases and programming languages consider numeral values as special variables with some type (for example, integer or long integer), which have a limit on acceptable numeral values input (for example, value integer should be between -32768 and 32767 but long integer – from -2147483640 to 2147483647).

Test the set border values of used variables for numeric fields whose border values aren’t determined in the specification.

Date Bounds Test

It happens that there is a special logical constraint for the fields that are responsible for entering and displaying the time and date inside the developed application. For example, if you check the field that contains the user’s date of birth, then it would be logical to test the possibility of prohibiting the entry of a date that has not come yet (in other words, the date in the future), or the restriction on entering a date that is different at the time of the test for more than 150 years.

Date Validity

The date entry field should always be validated for entering certain values ​ (for example, entering 31-11-2009 – cannot be considered a valid date). You should also remember that the date field should be tested for leap years.

Web Session Testing

Most modern web products use special browser sessions to monitor the actions of a user who has been verified within the system. All this happens by using special settings for a specific user. At the same time, some of the system parameters can’t work until the client has passed the verification inside the system. Test that the current functionality of the product, which is “hidden” behind the password, is not available to the client, who hasn’t passed the verification yet.

Performance Changes

After a new version of the product has been released, it is necessary to perform testing of components for overall productivity (for example, monitor the process of adding information, deleting data, or editing certain elements on a web page). Compare it with the productivity testing of previous web product versions. This practice will not only find all the current problems of the general program productivity but also help to predict possible changes in the program code for new builds of the developed software in the future.

Creating your own test for negative testing

For example, it is very interesting for us to understand how the function of calculating the root behaves in a simple calculator.

The very first thing that comes to mind: what will happen if you try to calculate the root of a negative value? What is there to think about?

  • A root from zero – you need to remember the famous boundary values. The user can’t enter a line of negative length, unlike with boundary value;
  • The root of the value “4” – similar characters can be divided into “conditional number”;
  • We will try to enter a line that, naturally, means a number. And then take a number from it.

As you can see from this example, there can be an infinite number of tests.

By the way, you don’t need to enter a huge number as root, but simply enter an ordinary number so that the root comes out very, very long and doesn’t fit in the viewport of a PC or mobile device screen, then something should just break or simply go wrong.

QA engineers are able to provide you with all useful information on negative or any other testing type you are interested in. Running various kinds of tests, specialists of a quality assurance organization prevent the users from causing many software problems.

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.

Awesome Affiliate Marketing Strategies To Generate More Sales

Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to enhance the business growth and establish a successful brand. From small businesses, to multinational organisations, all of them focus on affiliate marketing because they know just how effective it can prove to be. However, considering how competitive the market is, the right affiliate marketing strategies are definitely essential for the business to grow. Whether you are looking for the best natural health affiliates or affiliates that can help promote a retail business, it is important to choose the right techniques and methods that prove to be fruitful. Here are some strategies that are important for you to follow.

Choose The Right Affiliates

Affiliate marketing is convenient mainly because it gives you the power to choose the people who can help influence consumers to purchase your product. In order for you to influence these people you need to pick an audience that is strong enough to create awareness about the brand as well as let people know why your product is better. Apart from product promotions you need to see whether or not these people have the knowledge about your product and whether they have a large enough audience to convey the benefits to.

You also need to understand that not all affiliate marketers are successful from the start; you need to make sure that they have the passion to promote your product and they know your product well. If you have enough knowledge about your product then this will benefit your business greatly.

Attract Sales With Coupons, Deals And Promotions

A foolproof method to grab more attention to your product through affiliate marketing is to lure customers into purchasing from you by offering them coupons for discounts. This helps them to feel more valued and the fact that they can save money is definitely going to drive them towards purchasing from your business. With these deals there is a higher chance that you will make a sale even if your product is more expensive as compared to your competitor. It is common human behaviour to choose something on sale even if it is more expensive as compared to something that is available at a retail price which may be lower than the sale price.

Optimising Product Pages

Most of the companies usually rely on their affiliates for sales to come in. What they usually do is invest in various affiliate marketing strategies and they wait for the sales to walk into the door. However what they do not realise is that they play a huge part in making sure that the potential customer converts into an actual customer. This is done only on the product page. While your affiliate may get your potential customer to your page, if the visitor cannot understand anything that is mentioned on the product page and is not able to get any of his or her questions answered then you will miss out on a potential sale.

The product page plays a vital role in converting a visitor to a customer. There are a number of factors that need to be kept in mind when creating a product page. The site needs to load very fast in order for the customer to retain his or her interest. Moving from the affiliate site to the product site can get frustrating if the product page takes very long to load. Customers usually do not have a lot of time in hand and if your page takes more than 10 seconds to load there is a possibility that the customer will close the window and move on to another page.

You also need to make sure that you are providing sufficient information to your customers regarding the product that they want to purchase. No customer will purchase a product without getting their questions answered. These questions could be regarding the specifications of the product or it could also be regarding previous customer experience. If your customer is not able to get answers to any of these questions they will not purchase your product. You also need to ensure that there are product photos that are displayed on your product page. Online sales happen because of the customers being able to see the product. Statistics have shown that a product page without any pictures of a product will never sell. Your product description also needs to be engaging and should create a want in the customers mind.

Multiple Sources

One of the biggest mistakes that most companies make is focusing only on a single channel. Affiliate marketing can be done through various channels. Rather than only focusing on social media promotion or sales site promotions, you need to expand your affiliate marketing promotions. One of the best ways to do so is with the help of email marketing. Email marketing and affiliate marketing go hand in hand. There are a number of customers that usually get converted through email marketing. If you are not too sure how to conduct your email marketing campaign then you can go online and check for the professionals that are able to do this.

Another way of getting more customers is getting noticed on the product review blogs. There are a number of websites that conduct product reviews for various kinds of products. If you are able to get your products reviews on these pages then you can be assured that you will get more customers to your product site.

Earning more revenue and getting sales through affiliate marketing is not an easy task. However if you are able to find the right balance between promotion and information then you will hit the right nerve with the customer. Trust plays a major factor in a customer converting and this is what you need to keep in mind when picking your affiliate marketing strategy. The more the trust, the better the chances of you being able to sell products. Once you earn the trust, you will also gain a customer for a lifetime.
