Software Testing Interview Questions and Answers Part 3


21. Describe bottom-up and top-down approaches in Regression Testing.

  • Bottom-up approach: In this approach testing is conducted from sub module to main module, if the main module is not developed a temporary program called DRIVERS is used to simulate the main module.

  • Top-down approach: In this approach testing is conducted from main module to sub module. if the sub module is not developed a temporary program called STUB is used for simulate the sub-module.


22. What is meaning by prototype in SDLC?

  • This is a cyclic version of the linear model. In this model, once the requirement analysis is done and the design for a prototype is made, the development process gets started. Once the prototype is created, it is given to the customer for evaluation.

  • The customer tests the package and gives his/her feed back to the developer who refines the product according to the customerís exact expectation.

  • After a finite number of iterations, the final software package is given to the customer. In this methodology, the software is devolved as a result of periodic shuttling of information between the customer and developer.

  • This is the most popular development model in the contemporary IT industry. Most of the successful software products have been developed using this model .To comprehend all the requirements of a customer in one shot.There are many variations of this model skewed with respect to the project management styles of the companies. New versions of a software product evolve as a result of prototyping.


23. What is difference between desktop and web application?

  • The biggest difference between Desktop and web application is- Desktop App (DA) is the machine independent, hence every change has only reflects at the machine level. Where as Web App (WA) is the Internet dependent program, hence any change in the program reflects at every where, where it becomes use

  • Example: Suppose there are 5 machines in DA, 5 times installed individually at every machine and if there is any change made in DA then at every machine change has to be made. In Web Application where the program or Application at the Server or at the one common machine, then if changes made at only central or server or common machine all the changes get reflected at every client machine.


24. What is difference between application testing and product testing?

  • Product testing means when any company does testing for their own (companyís) product. Example: Norton Antivirus is the Symantecís product; if Symantec test the Norton i.e. called as the Product testing.

  • Where as if any company take some projects from some other companies like ABC Company takes projects from IBM and test that project on some charges i.e. called as Application Testing.


25. What is a broken link in web testing and how test it?

  • When we clicked on hyper link if it opens Page canít be displayed then that hyper link is called as broken link.


26. When will you make update and modify the test object properties in the repository?

  • Whenever the developer may change any one of the object properties definitely we have to change the same in the OR object repository. If new version net build released from the development department we the test engineers must to modify or update the same is compulsory, otherwise than test will show the bug


27. What is the document needed to create a test case? How you tell it is test case?

  • System requirements specification, Use case document, Test Plan


28. In customer details form having fields like customer name, customer address. After completion of this module, client raise the change as insert the two radio buttons after customer address. How you can check as a tester?

1. First we need to verify whether the radio button is there are not?

2. Conform the radio buttons are present after the customer address or not.

3. Verify the no of radio button.

4. Verify only one radio button should be checked initially when we open the Customer details form (if it is mentioned in FS)

5. Verify the functionality of the radio buttons i.e. if we check one ratio button, second radio button should be unchecked.

6. Verify the spell check of radio button label name.

7. Verify the alignment of radio buttons in the form.


29. What are the common problems in the software development process?

Inadequate requirements from the Client :

  • If the requirements given by the client are not clear, unfinished and not testable, then problems may come.

Unrealistic schedule:

  • Sometimes too much of work is being given to the developer and ask him to complete in a Short duration, then the problems are unavoidable.

Insufficient testing:

  • The problems can arise when the developed software is not tested properly. Given another work under the existing process request from the higher management to work on another project or task will bring some problems when the project is being tested as a team.


  • In some cases, the developer was not informed about the Clients requirement and expectations, so there can be deviations.


30. At the time of testing web based applications and client server applications, what you absorbed as a tester?

  • We generally check for the links, data retrieving and posting. We perform load and stress testing especially for Web based and Client-Server applications.
