“Software testing is a sport like hunting, it’s bug hunting.”
Software Testing is the process of analyzing the performance of a software application to find its bugs. It investigates whether the developed software met the specified requirements and identifies any defect in the software in order to fabricate a quality product.
In automated software testing, software tools performs tests on a software application before production. Automated software security testing includes static and dynamic testing.
Static software testing automation:
Static software testing is a testing process that looks at the application from the inside out. This test process is performed before executing the program by examining the source code, byte code or application binaries for conditions indicative of a security vulnerability.
Dynamic software testing automation:
A dynamic software testing process by examining the applications in their running state, during operation or in testing phases. The testing happens by examining it in its running state and trying to control it in adventitious ways in order to detect security vulnerabilities.
We need software testing for the following reasons:
1. Cost efficient:
One of the most important ones in software testing is cost-effectiveness. Testing our project on time can save money in the long run. Software development consists of many stages and if bugs are caught in the early stages, it costs much less to fix them.
This is the most sensitive and vulnerable part of software testing. Users are always looking for trusted products that they can rely on. It helps in removing problems and risks before it happens.
3. Quality of the product:
In order to make your product vision come to life, it has to work as planned. It is important to follow the product requirements because it helps you get the required results.
4. Customer satisfaction:
The ultimate goal for a product is to give the best customer satisfaction. Software should be tested in order to bring the best user experience possible. Being the best product in this saturated market will help you gain trustworthy clients which will have greater long-term effects.
Getting Started with Automated Testing
Building a successful automated testing strategy is tough and the approach will vary based upon the person who is doing it. Budget, deadlines, application type and development model are all factors that impact how an automated testing strategy should be implemented.
