Negative Testing

Negative Testing 1) Testing the application for fail conditions, negative testing is testing the tool with improper inputs, for example, entering the special characters for phone number. 2) Testing aimed at showing software does not work. Also known as “test to fail”. 3) Negative testing is testing that is directed to showing that something will -not- work. It’s such a natural part of regular testing that I doubt that most people know that there is both a “positive” and “negative” testing. 4) Negative Testing is simply testing the application beyond and below of its limits.

Performance, Load, Stress, and Volume Testing

1. Performance TestingIn white-box testing testers, developers, system administrators, and DBAs work together in order to instrument the application code and the database queries (via specialized profilers for example), and the hardware/operating system of the server(s) running the application and the database (via monitoring tools such as vmstat, iostat, top or Windows PerfMon). All these activities belong to performance testing.The goal of performance testing is not to find bugs, but to eliminate bottlenecks and establish a baseline for future regression testing. These bottlenecks can exist at multiple levels:a. at the application level, developers can use profilers to spot inefficiencies in their code Read More
