Software Testing Interview Questions and Answers Part 8


71. How will you prepare Test plan. What are the techniques involved in preparing the Test plan?

  • Test plan means planning for the release. This includes Project background:

  • Test Objectives: Brief overview and description of the document

  • Test Scope: Setting the boundaries, Features being tested (Functionalities), Hardware requirements and Software requirements

  • Entrance Criteria (When to start testing): Test environment established, Builder received from developer, Test case prepared and reviewed.

  • Exit criteria (when to stop testing): All bug status cycle are closed, all functionalities are tested, and all high and medium bugs are resolved.

  • Project milestones: dead lines


72. What is the Defect Life Cycle?

  • Defect life cycle is also called as bug life cycle. It has 6 stages namely:

    1. New: found new bug

    2. Assigned: bud assigned to developer

    3. Open: developer is fixing the bug

    4. Fixed: developer has fixed the bug

    5. Retest: tester retests the application

    6. Closed/reopened: if it is ok tester gives closed status else he reopens and sends back to developer


73. Explain about metrics Management?

  • Metrics: is nothing but a measurement analysis. Measurement analysis and Improvement is one of the process area in CMM I L2.


74. What is regression testing?

  • After the Bug fixed, testing the application whether the fixed bug is affecting remaining functionality of the application or not. Majorly in regression testing Bug fixed module and its connected modules are checked for their integrity after bug fixation.

75. What is performance Testing and Regression Testing?

  • Performance Testing: - Testing the present working condition of the product

  • Regression Testing: - Regression Testing is checking for the newly added functionality causing any errors interims of functionality and the common functionality should be stable in the latest and the previous versions


76. What is difference between the Web application testing and Client Server testing?

  • Testing the application in intranet (without browser) is an example for client -server. (The company firewalls for the server are not open to outside world. Outside people cannot access the application.) So there will be limited number of people using that application.

  • Testing an application in internet (using browser) is called web testing.The application which is accessible by numerous numbers around the world (World Wide Web.).So testing web application, apart from the above said two testing there are many other testing to be done depending on the type of web application. We are testing:

If it is a secured application (like banking site- we go for security testing etc.)

If it is an e-commerce testing application we go for Usability etc. Testing.


77. Explain your web application architecture?

  • Web application is tested in 3 phases:

1. Web tier testing: browser compatibility

2. Middle tier testing: functionality, security

3. Data base tier testing: database integrity, contents


78. Explain about Bug life cycle?

1. Tester

2. Open defect

3. Send to developer

4. If accepted moves to step5 else sends the bug to tester gain

5. Fixed by developer

6. Regression testing


79. What is difference between Software Verification and Validation?




Have we build the software right? (i.e. does it match the specification).

Have we build the right software? (i.e. is this what customer wants).

It is the process of evaluating a system or component to determine whether the product of given development phase satisfy the conditions imposed at the start of the phase.

It is the process of evaluating a system or component during or at the end of the development process to determine whether it satisfies specified requirements.

Verification takes place first and includes the checking for documentation, code etc.

Verification takes place first and includes the checking for documentation, code etc.

Usually done by software developers

Done by Testers.

Have static activities as it includes the reviews, walkthroughs, and inspections to verify that software is correct or not.

Have dynamic activities as it includes executing the software against the requirements.


80. If you have executed 100 test cases ,every test case passed but apart from these test case you found some defect for which test case is not prepared, them how you can report the bug?

  • While reporting this bug into bug tracking tool you will generate the test case mean put the steps to reproduce the bug.
