Performance Testing tools: Loadrunner


Our Performance Engineering webinar held last month was well received. Several participants asked us about the various Performance Testing tools we use for our work. In this blog Loadrunner a popular Performance testing tool will be discussed in detail.”

Performance Testing tools

While the previous blog gave insights on performance bottle necks, the present one brings an overview on performance testing tools.Performance Testing involves execution of load through concurrent requests against System under test and simulate multiple user Production scenario in QA environment to identify bottlenecks.

Automation Testing versus Manual Testing

Testing has become an integral part of a product or a process, to assess and ensure a certain level of quality.

Selenium for Test Automation

Selenium is a suite of tools used to automate web application testing across many platforms. It is an open source tool developed in Java Script and browser technologies and hence supports all the major browsers on all the platforms. It was developed by ThoughtWorks Inc.

There are 4 components of Selenium:

1) Selenium Core:

Best practices in Internationalization testing

This blog will focus on the best practices to be followed for Internationalization & Localization testing of web based applications.

Testing Add-ons & custom toolbars for web browsers

Gone are the days when a simple browser was more than enough for our daily browsing tasks. As the Web has evolved, our demands from a Web browser have also increased. To leverage the maximum out of a browser, plug-ins or add-ons were designed. Let us understand these add-ons & the important points to consider while designing its test plan

Using Customized Junit TestSuite for testing

Do developers also have to test? How do developers test since they are supposed to be good at coding and not at testing? Well, then the solution is for them to code the test as well!

This blog covers the basics of Junit – a framework designed to write repeatable tests. It is based on the xUnit architecture, which is basically a collection of code-driven testing techniques, allowing testing of various software units such as functions and classes and eliminating the need to write the same tests multiple times.

Automation Testing: What, When and How Much

Introduction to Automated Testing

Automated testing commonly refers to the use of specialized software to automate a manual process of testing a software program or application with the intention of finding defects. The goal of automating the manual process is to avoid manually performing repetitive testing tasks of a similar type which could be completed faster and more accurately by automating them.
