(Below Questions and Answers are randomly taken from different pages of the book)

11: What is STLC and how is it related to SDLC?

STLC is a Software testing life cycle. It co-exists with SDLC. Once SDLC phase with coding is executed, it enters the Testing phase. At this phase ‘Software Testing Life Cycle’ is evolved. This is a procedure that is generally parallel to the SDLC cycle. There are phases to Software testing just like SDLC. In general, every product needs to be signed off before handing it over to the end party. In technical terms, every product needs a good quality delivery. The process of executing a piece of code (program)or system with the intent of finding errors is a software testing. In other words, evaluation of the software application or program is to ascertain if there is any deviation of actual results with the expected outcome. Its main purpose is to fulfill Correctness, Contents, Security, Reliability, Accuracy, Durability and Completeness.  Without a sign off up-on, completion of the STLC process, SDLC is incomplete.

133: What is the difference between an Iterative model and the Waterfall model?

Waterfall method is a process in which the testing process occurs in a flow. Every process has to go through the phase in the waterfall at least once. The major disadvantage is that once the process passes through the phase it cannot reenter. Mostly the method is not in much use because of the disadvantage. If there are any changes in the requirement, in the waterfall method, the modifications cannot be done.   Iterative model is like a loop structure, wherein the modification to the requirement can be made in any phase and implemented in the SDLC at any time irrespective of whether the process has passed through the phase.

196: What is BrowseSync?

BrowseSync is an automation tool to smoothen the process of web development. The tool will help to synchronize the actions and then help to interact with multiple files all across the web applications. The tool has various other inbuilt tools to help function easily and effectively. BrowseSync works across multiple devices and helps to multi-task. The tool can be even worked along with task runners to facilitate the easy scheduling of tasks to enhance the performance.

239: What is a Test Suite? 

Test suite, is a compilation of test cases that are planned to be used to feed as an input to a software program to ensure that the software has some specified set of behaviors as per the specifications. A test suite habitually contains goals or thorough instructions for every collection of test case. It also holds information to be used on the system configuration, for testing. A collection of test cases may also contain steps or prerequisite states and descriptions. Collections of test cases may also be called as a test scenario or even a test script. A test suite is executable when it is ready or completed. This means that usually a test exploit exists that is integrated with the suite, such that the test harness and the test suite jointly can work on an adequately detailed level, to communicate correctly with the system under test. A test suite can also be used for some specific functionality in the system. The test suite is useful for carrying out Build verification tests, Functional test, Regression test, and smoke and Integration tests.

296: What is defect seeding?

Defect seeding is a method to dig in the number of defects that a software has in it. The technique is not very commonly used. In the process of defect seeding an application is inserted with few defects and then verified whether these defects are found or not. Depending on the number of seeded defects are revealed or how many are not discovered, and how many new defects or the unseeded ones are discovered the software can be judged. By using defect seeding technique one can predict the number of defects remaining in the system and in way deliver a quality testing.
