NerdCloud offers solutions for your every software development need. We perform rigorous functional testing throughout our development process, as well as having our Technical PM conduct unit and automated testing. We also offer software testing as a service.
Here’s everything you need to know about our main software tests and quality control to help you understand our processes, so that you know exactly how we give you the quality that you deserve.
Functional testing is a form of software testing that validates a software system against certain functional requirements or specifications. When we carry out functional tests, we test each software function by entering appropriate input and using functional requirements to verify the output.
Functional testing should always be performed before any non-functional testing. This is because it describes what the product does and is carried out according to business requirements, and so is the most important and fundamental type of software testing.
Some examples of functional testing are:
Functional testing tests the following:
There are five main steps to functional testing:
We use different functional testing tools depending on the unique software. They all have their pros and cons and are therefore each best-suited for different applications.
Some examples include:
This is a type of software test that tests the smallest piece of code that can be logically isolated in a system. In the majority of programming languages, a unit would be a function, a subroutine, a property, or a method.
The most important part of the definition of a unit is that it is isolated. This means that a unit test can’t be conducted by relying on external systems. For example, if a test needs to rely on a database, a network, or a file system, then it can’t be called a unit test.
Unit tests give a very thorough idea of how well code is performing as well as having the benefit of speed – because the tests are carried out on such small pieces of code, tests can be run incredibly fast. We’re talking a thousand tests a second.
Other benefits of unit testing include:
Unit testing is most often automated, but can also be done manually. When automated, it will progress as follows:
Some examples of unit testing tools include:
