Automated Unit Tests are so easy to write now that it actually adds no additional effort to write a test to verify the code. AND no extra effort to maintain the test for unstable code

[GET] Cyclometric Complexity

Cyclomatic complexity (or conditional complexity) is a software metric (measurement). It was developed by Thomas J. McCabe Sr. in 1976 and is used to measure the complexity of a program. It directly measures the number of linearly independent paths through a program's source code. Download the following link to know more.. http://www.mediafire.com/6a68uydwhobehs8

What heuristics do people use to determine the validity of executing a test script?

When I started out as a developer and my code didn't compile, I used to try and fix all the errors in one go rather than one at a time. Eventually I realised that I could only expect to fix the first error and I might manage one more before recompiling and checking again. This was because the first error typically caused all the subsequent errors, so fixing the first one usually fixed most of the other errors too. Today I see testers trying to execute test scripts that clearly don't really work anymore. The tester is under pressure to get through a set number of test cases and is allowed leeway to interpret out of date scripts so that they use information in their heads, not the written steps, to 'keep on track'. Sometimes this is ok. For example, If the script mentions a button called 'Go' and you see it has become 'Start', it's a fairly safe bet that you can click the 'Start' button to complete the step. But when do you hold you hand up and ask to stop and get the test scripts updated If you stop on the smallest script error you risk being accused of having no common sense, if you press on regardless, you risk ending up with test scripts that become nonsense.

[Get]Automated Cross-Browser Compatibility Testing.

With the advent of Web 2.0 applications and new browsers, the cross-browser compatibility issue is becoming increasingly important. Although the problem is widely recognized among web developers, no systematic approach to tackle it exists today. None of the current tools, which provide screenshots or emulation environments, species any notion of cross-browser compatibility, much less check it automat-icily. In this paper, we pose the problem of cross-browser compatibility testing of modern web applications as a `functional consistency' check of web application behavior across different web browsers and present an automated solution for it. Our approach consists of (1) automatically analyzing the given web application under different browser environments and capturing the behavior as a finite-state machine; (2) formally comparing the generated models for equivalence on a pair wise-basis and exposing any observed discrepancies. We validate our approach on several open-source and industrial case studies to demonstrate its effectiveness and real-world relevance. To know details please go to below link.

Is it possible to report defect automatically based on automation log?

This week, my manager told me one plan in 2010. She want to make it possible to report defect automatically based on automation log.

[Get]How to test Load / Stress Testing of Websites?

Some very high profile websites have suffered from serious outages and/or performance issues due to the number of people hitting their website. E-commerce sites that spent heavily on advertising but not nearly enough on ensuring the quality or reliability of their service have ended up with poor web-site performance, system downtime and/or serious errors, with the predictable result that customers are being lost. Load testing tools can be used to test the system behaviour and performance under stressful conditions by emulating thousands of virtual users. This article covers following topics: 1. The Importance of Scalability & Load Testing 2. Preparing for a Load Test Study full article to prepare for load/stress of your website. Code: http://www.mediafire.com/9ot5qo02fn47lp7 Enjoy Ram

What do you think about "Test automation with building blocks"?

My company, eXept Software, has a testing tool, called expecco, which provides an exciting approach for graphical modeling of test cases. Tests are presented as UML-activity diagrams and can be expanded by drag & drop with extensive block libraries to check functionality, security and performance of a wide range of systems (web, gui, hardware, ...).
