Software Test Tools

Tools exist to support software testing at all stages of a project. Some vendors offer an integrated suite that will support testing and development throughout a project's life, from gathering requirements to supporting the live system. Some vendors concentrate on a single part of that life cycle. The software test tools knowledge base provides functional criteria you might expect from a testing tool, the infrastructure that supports the tool, and an idea of the market position of the vendor.

A Guide to Software Test Tools


Testing a system well is harder than building it. In the face of new risks introduced by the ever-increasing complexity of software and hardware, test tools may be your only practical way to be confident that you've got just what you paid for. From gathering the initial requirements to supporting the system after it has been deployed, test tools are available to support all phases of a project. This article looks at the ways that test tools can be used to design, code, and (of course) test a system.

They often provide functionality to monitor behavior of the system as a whole, rather than any individual test. Monitoring tools (also known as Flight Recorders ) also measure overall properties of the system and its environment during testing, Read More

Provia Tackles RFID in a Twofold Manner Part One: Recent Annoucements


The fact that the size does not necessarily mean everything in the enterprise applications space might be proven by Provia, which certainly still continues to differentiate its value proposition despite its smaller stature and quieter nature compared to most of its adversaries. Most recently, it would be its early embrace of RFID through two offerings for different levels of RFID needs: 1) ViaWare WMS--RFID compliant product, for intrinsic RFID enablement of many processes within the supply chain, and 2) the RFIDware add-on module, for achieving outbound RFID tag application only.

Enabling Security in the Software Development Life Cycle


When companies discover new security vulnerabilities, they must retrofit the affected software with an appropriate patch and fend off the wrath of customers. Each newly discovered vulnerability results in a frantic patch, halfway deployed, and potentially opens up another hole. That’s why you should address security vulnerabilities during the software development process—before you get locked into a game of catch-up.

stress test  Too much torque creates stress on the bottle (and a new market for bottle openers), and not enough torque could lead to leaks at the seams. Manufacturers figured this out by testing for failure. In the computer hardware world, testing for failure is common, and a metric measuring the mean time between failures characterizes the life of the hardware. It is easy to understand the need to test for failure in hardware because the costs involved in rebuilding parts are enormous. Likewise, rewriting software Read More

A Test Process for All Life Cycles

CRM Testing Throughout Implementation


In terms of strategic partnerships, the acquirer is responsible for judging how well customer relationship management (CRM) software will function on the equipment and at the site, and with staff, customers, and third-party applications. Acceptance testing involves three basic flavors: user acceptance, operational acceptance, and contractual acceptance. While it is not the only step involved when implementing a CRM system, testing is a fundamental way of finding information and will help you judge a system’s returns and pitfalls.
