Exploratory testing is an approach that can be described as simultaneous learning, test design and test execution. It is testing parallel with learning. We all consciously or un-consciously do exploratory testing. We use the concept of “Think Different” every time we do exploratory testing. Creative exploratory tests help to break the monotonous scripted testing and bring out newer test case each time.
This paper brings out the approach of exploratory testing which is an emerging topic and clubbed with risk based analysis brings a powerful approach to testing. Today’s fast growing technology and rapid changes in projects, makes exploratory testing an important approach for every tester. Scripted testing alone often fails to find hidden defects. Exploratory testing, however, can expose these risks because it incorporates exploration and experience into the testing process.
One common misconception about exploratory testing is, it is unstructured, and this paper tries to showcase the concept of doing exploratory testing with risk analysis and gives it a more structured approach.
Also this paper highlights exploratory testing in mobile applications, using risk analysis. Mobile application testing embeds a lot of features, navigation flows, OS, device dependency. Mobile testing always requires an investigative approach apart from the fundamental test approaches. Exploratory testing with risk analysis makes a mobile testing much structured and easier to delve deep into the application and find bugs.
Amalgamation of Behavior driven development (BDD), parallel execution and mobile automation
With the rise of Mobile first approaches, a substantial traffic has now shifted from the desktops to the Mobile phones. To ensure quality in mobile apps, Testing needs to be continuous and inclusive. This makes Mobile Test Automation a formidable business driver. Along with that there needs to be strong collaboration between developers, testers and non-technical or business participants in a software project to maintain application consistency across multiple platforms.
The intent of our whitepaper will be to provide a comprehensive mobile automation testing strategy using Behaviour Driven Development, optimized selection of target devices, and an effective combination of manual and automated testing tools to cover appropriate functional testing essential for getting your mobile applications to market on time and within budget.
This paper will also discuss on how the scenarios which are derived from the requirement can be automated using BDD approach across Web and Mobile. Also, it will highlight on how parallel execution can be achieved using BDD & Mobile Automation.
