Software testing at Agile software development project implementation

The main goal of our company is customer satisfaction, so we pay particular attention to the software specs at all stages of software development. In addition, our experts are paying particular attention to the quality of the product – we provide software testing on demand as part of a software development project, as well as dedicated teams of testers for software product quality assurance.

For custom software development services, the final user of the product is the customer who is interested in getting a quality product with all the individual features of the business processes being automated. Due to the rapid development of the world, there is always the risk of appearing new details of the product during the development itself, so there is a need for flexible software development methodologies. Agile is a methodology that is aimed to result through effective communication and flexibility in the software development process. While the implementation of practical tasks, Agile is used in complex with practical methodologies like Scrum, Extreme Programming, and others, which are built on the principles of Agile.

Applying Agile methodology, we divide the software development process into a series of short cycles – iterations. The duration of each iteration is approximately 2 – 4 weeks. The development team of our company is in close contact with the customer throughout the software development life cycle. At the end of each iteration, the customer receives a certain part of the overall functionality that is completely functional as a standalone product. Thus, at each stage of product development, our experts provide quality assurance.

We use continuous testing throughout the software development cycle in a flexible environment, using tools like JMeter, Selenium, and solve the following problems:

Our specialists use both manual and automated testing. Automated testing plays an important role in the testing process of our company, as it takes less time. Agile methodology provides a ready software product on each iteration, so daily regression testing is a compulsory requirement. If automation is not available, then the regression testing is performed manually.

The advantages of using automated testing:

Automation makes human resources free to perform quality work. By automating the same type of scenarios, testers get more time for research testing or testing the potentially weak parts of the system.

Automation gives confidence. With automation, errors occurred at any code change can be detected and corrected when running the regression testing. Performing these tests, we are confident in the correctness of the performed changes and help to avoid future mistakes that could be caused by incorrect changes. In the case of manual testing, error detection requires more time. Thus, in our practice, we use the best solution to ensure software quality – a combination of automated and manual testing.

As for testing techniques, we use the most convenient for both automated and manual testing. It is the decision charts used for the system business rules verification or in case the system behaviour depends on the combination of the data inputted. Using this technique, automated tests are built for all combinations of conditions under which it is necessary to perform only one action. If there are several actions, such tests are performed manually, as automation requires more skills and time. As a result, the customer receives a convenient, high-quality product that best meets their needs.
