Belitsoft is a software development provider with the aims of delivering effective and quality solutions to our clients. To achieve this aim we begin quality assurance process at the stage of the product architecture creation and we end it at the moment of the ready product delivery. We do software testing to ensure that it meets the requirements, industry standards, as well as security, and is in compliance with the business goals it was designed to achieve.
We offer quality assurance for both third-party products and custom software developed by our team.
How to use available QA resources in the most efficient way to reduce costs and the delivery time of a custom developed software without compromising on quality? We follow the software testing best practices.
Effective testing can be done in several ways – manually, with or without specific applications, or totally in automated mode. The choice depends on the aspect to test and the objective factors such as software type, size, and aim of testing.
Our Quality assurance specialists define the most effective test types for each product and offer the optimal plan of testing. Their many years of expertise allow them to bring you functional, bug-free, stable-working software. With us, your products will enter the market on time and within budget.
To achieve the highest efficiency of software testing service and to make this process as transparent as possible, we use different solutions for bug tracking and test monitoring: Confluence, JIRA, Zendesk, Redmine, Bugzilla, custom scripts designed specifically to test a solution or its specific function. We like instant feedback exchanges between all parties participating in software development and testing, this allows the detection and elimination of bugs and errors in time.
Automated software testing is a process when special software tools are used to execute pre-scripted tests. Sometimes, manual testing does not meet expectations, is rather laborious, time and cost consuming. Therefore, it is more cost-effective to apply automated testing that significantly simplifies the testing effort and provides fast test execution. Automated testing tools are used for executing tests, reporting results, and comparing them with earlier test runs. Test automation is intended to the automation of repetitive tasks, product installation, test data creation, defect logging, GUI interaction and much more. Automated testing is important for providing continuous testing and continuous delivery.
This type of testing is used for automation of mouse clicks, keystrokes, select menu items, call object methods and so on to ensure the correct program behavior. GUI testing tools let record user actions, replay them as many times as needed, and compare actual results to what is expected. GUI testing is usually used for websites and mobile applications testing.
Using this type of testing means the creation of a number of unit tests that determine if various parts of the code are acting as expected under various circumstances. Unit testing is usually used in Agile software development, and such development process is known as test-driven development (TDD). When all the tests pass, the code can be considered completed.
API testing means verifying if APIs meet expectations for functionality, performance, reliability, and security. This type of testing is used to validate software behavior under test.
Apple TV brings user experience to a new dimension with support for all sorts of apps - from movie streaming and games to pizza-ordering and fitness services.
Modern mobile applications (Android, iOS, cross-platform) are highly dynamic. New Android devices are entering the market every day, having new updates and customization, thus, software developers should think about their software compatibility with all these device variants. Test automation makes it possible to test your software on hundreds of real devices simultaneously. Automated testing is a cost-effective solution that increases testing efficiency, provides wide test coverage and faster time to market.
Test automation can go together with application development that saves much time. It also saves your costs because bugs are revealed at the early stage of the development process: it’s rather cheap and easy to fix them at this stage. You are able to run automated tests again and again at no additional costs. Belitsoft offers various automated testing services such as User Interface and Functionality Testing, Graphics Performance Testing, including Load Testing, and much more. We plan our testing carefully, select the most appropriate testing technology, maintain and improve our test scripts as an app changes, and offer 24/7 test running.
Belitsoft offers test automation for any desktop/mobile web application. We use effective testing automation tools and frameworks that support popular browsers, test environments, and programming languages. Our QA-team applies Functionality, Usability, Interface, Compatibility and other types of automated testing to test links, database connection, online forms, Cookie and any other objects of a web page.
To implement automated testing, a test automation framework is required. A test automation framework is an integrated system that simplifies the automation effort by offering a set of rules for the automation of a specific product. A test automation framework is responsible for creating tests for a certain type of an application, executing those tests, and generating detailed test reports. Here, at Belitsoft, we use Record & Playback, Keyword-driven, Data-driven, and Hybrid automation frameworks, depending on the project’s testing goals and budget, environment, and time frames.
This test automation framework helps to record user actions and replay them as many times as needed. It is rather cheap and easy to deploy. However, it has limited performance and maintenance costs can be rather high.
This advanced framework supports multiple environments and large data inputs. It has high usability, reusability, and wide test flow coverage. Even so, a Data-driven framework requires regular maintenance and manual intervention.
This framework is a good choice for many projects, different applications, environments and data sets. It has good script usability, reusability, and test flow coverage. However, it also requires regular maintenance and deep knowledge of meta-languages.
This is the most complex framework that supports data import and export, external objects integration, and large datasets. It covers multiple applications, environments, and platforms. This framework is also highly usable and re-usable. Even so, using this framework means significant upfront investment and requires good design and implementation skills.
Using testing automation tools lets minimize our work effort and deliver high-quality software. Our applications are efficient and high- performing due to the fact that we use various automation tools such as Selenium, TestingWhiz, HPE Unified Functional Testing, TestComplete and much more. We choose our testing tools based on some criterion such as scripting language use, ease of use, a possibility of database testing, image testing, availability of detailed test reports, support for different types of test, testing frameworks, certain platforms and technologies. As a rule, we choose such automation tool that fits your overall requirements more.
Selenium is one of the most popular testing automation tools we use. This tool is widely used for web application testing, supports different OS (Windows, Mac OS, Linux) and programming languages (Java, PHP, C#, Ruby on Rails, Python and other). Selenium is the base for most other software testing tools and UI testing frameworks. This testing automation tool can execute multiple tests at a time, supports autocomplete for Selenium common commands, walkthrough tests, stores tests in different formats and has many other advantages.
to create regression automation suites and tests and to distribute scripts across various environments
to create bug reproduction scripts and scripts aiding in automation-aided exploratory testing
Automated testing process
First, a selected testing automation tool should fit your automation requirements and correspond to the project conditions.
Here we define what test cases should be automated and what features should be covered by tests.
At this stage, we develop automation scripts and schedule our activity.
When automation tests are ready, it’s time to run them and analyze the provided reports.
After test execution is conducted, we analyze metrics as percentage of defects found, customer satisfaction index, productivity improvements and other.
Automation scripts need to be added and maintained for each release to provide their accuracy and efficiency.
Our well-versed QA-team includes experienced test leads, test designers, and teat automation engineers who follow the best test automation practices. We carefully plan and design our work. Our QA-engineers start testing as early as possible and run tests as often as needed because the more you test – the more bugs can be identified, and it’s much cheaper and easier to fix them at the very beginning of project development than at the production and deployment stages. We also divide our effort according to the skill set of each QA-engineer to create robust and powerful scripts. In addition, our automated tests are reusable due to the fact that we use quality test data. With the QA-team of Belitsoft, you test faster and save your costs.
Our test leads ensure that our QA-team meets your requirements and testing needs. This person is responsible for any arising challenges and costs.
This person defines what test cases should be automated. In other words, he/she form the list of requirements for the automation effort.
