Software Testing Interview Questions and Answers Part 9


81. What is the difference between web based application and client server application?

  • The basic difference between web based application & client server application is that the web application are 3 tiers & client based are 2 tiers. In web based changes are made at one place & it is reflected on other layers also whereas client based separate changes need be installed on client machine also.


82. What is test plan? And can you tell the test plan contents?

  • Test plan is a high level document which explains the test strategy, time lines and available resources in detail. Typically a test plan contains:


Test strategy


Entry criteria

Exit criteria

Use cases/Test cases


Features to be tested and not tested



83. Differentiate between QA and QC?

  • QA: It is process oriented. It evolves in entire process of software development. Preventing oriented.

  • QC: It is product oriented. Work to examine the quality of product. Deduction oriented.


84. What is a bug?

  • A computer bug is an error, flaw, mistake, failure, or fault in a computer program that prevents it from working correctly or produces an incorrect result.


85. What is a test case?

  • Test case is set of input values, execution preconditions, expected results and execution. Post conditions, developed for a particular objective or test conditions, such as to exercise a particular program path or to verify compliance with a specific requirement.


86. When testing will starts in a project?

  • The testing is not getting started after the coding. After release the build the testers perform the smoke test. Smoke test is the first test which is done by the testing team. This is according to the testing team. But, before the releasing of a build the developers will perform the unit testing.


87. How do you test database and explain the procedure?

  • Database Testing is purely done based on the requirements. You may generalize a few features but they wonít be complete. In general we look at:

1. Data Correctness (Defaults)

2. Data Storage/Retrieval

3. Database Connectivity (across multiple platforms)

4. Database Indexing

5. Data Integrity

6. Data Security


88. What is the deference between a bug and a defect?

  • When tester verifies the test cases, all failed test cases are recorded as bugs directed for necessary action and recorded in defected reports. As a testing point of view all fail test cases are defects as well as found bugs. While development point of view if product doesnít meet the software requirement specifications or any other features that is to be required, it is defect in the system. Who found this feature is not meeting his requirements, he call it is bug in that product.


89. How can we explain a bug, which may arrive at the time of testing. Explain?

  • First check the status of the bug, then check whether the bug is valid or not then forward the same bug to the team leader and then after confirmation forward it to the concern developer.


90. What do you mean by reproducing the bug? If the bug was not reproducible, what is the next step?

  • Reproducing a bug is as simple as reproducing a defect. If you find a defect, Example: Click the button and the corresponding action didnít happen, it is a bug. If the developer is unable to find this behavior he will ask us to reproduce the bug. In another scenario, if the client complaints a defect in the production we will have to reproduce it in test environment.
