Software testing

Types of testing provided

Testing service includes both black- and white-box testing, and provides the following key types of testing:

  • Certification / conformance testing – black-box testing based only on the specifications or standards to which the tested product must conform, strong conformance to the standards or specifications is verified, no assumptions are made based on product functionality.
  • Functional testing – tests to check product functionality corresponds to the functional requirements and product specifications.
  • Testing for optimization – a process closely related to testing, bottlenecks are identified and removed by algorithms / design model / technologies investigations and improvement and fine-tuning the software / hardware.
  • UI testing – automatic and interactive testing of product’s User Interface for functionality and usability.
  • Reviews – these include reviewing the specifications to check they are complete and correct, reviewing product documentation, User Guides, etc.

What Software testing service includes

  • Test engineering:
    • Determining testing strategy and development of test case specifications
    • Test suite structure design
    • Development of test suite build / run / result analysis and test case generation tools
    • Test case code and documentation development
    • Analysis of existing test suites for a product or technology for re-using
    • Porting of other vendor’s test suites
  • Executions of test cycles:
    • Code, specification and product documentation reviews
    • Scheduled and on-demand test runs, results analysis and reporting
    • Bug reports tracking, verification of bug fixes
    • Investigation of source codes for bug fixing
  • Testing quality improvement analysis:
    • Measurement and analysis of assertion coverage by test suites
    • Measurement and analysis of source code coverage by test suites
    • Determining strategies for improving assertion / source code coverage
  • Investigations for optimization:
    • Development and running of code analyzing tools, results analysis
    • Investigations of system architecture, design and source codes for identifying performance bottlenecks

Methods of testing established by software process

The company’s software process ensures that the following testing is performed during a software development life-cycle:

  • Peer-reviews / reviews
  • Unit testing
  • Integration testing
  • System testing
  • Compatibility testing

  • Automatic test generation tools
  • Test porting tools
  • Test suite building tools
  • Coverage measurement tools
  • Optimization tools
  • Static analysis tools
  • Test run automation tools

Maintenance, support and re-engineering
