Thread testing is the testing of system by running multiple users as one process. It is used when we want to test the system over any single LG. It is basically used for load testing. (if i m wrong plz correct)

Thanks, Sandeep

Mr. Sandeep Tread testing is not a load testing.

This guidance does not relate to testing Java(TM) applications.

You can use the following methods to test CICS(R) application programs:

Single-thread testing

A single-thread test takes one application transaction at a time, in an otherwise "empty" CICS system, and sees how it behaves. This enables you to test the program logic, and also shows whether or not the basic CICS information (such as resource definition) is correct. It is quite feasible to test this single application in one CICS region while your normal, online production CICS system is active in another.

Multithread testing

A multithread test involves several concurrently active transactions. Naturally, all the transactions are in the same CICS region, so you can readily test the ability of a new transaction to coexist with them.

You may find that a transaction that works perfectly in its single-thread testing still fails in the multithread test. It may also cause other transactions to fail, or even terminate CICS.

   thread testing is nothing but exploratory testing in this type of testing we do level by level of testing,this test we usually do for unknown application.

  Was this answer useful?  Yes

Thread testing is a SW technique that demonstrates key functional capabilities by testing a string of program units that accomplishes a specific business function in the application.

A thread is basically a business transaction consisting of a set of functions. It is a single discrete process which threads thorught the whole system. each function is tested seperately, then added one at a time to the thread. The business transaction thread is then tested. Threads are in turn integrated and incrementally tested as subsystems, and then the whole system is tested. This approach facilitates early systems and acceptance testing.

* Bill Amount paid in Swip Machine.
* Online fund Transaction.

Thread testing comes to account when a bigger project is to scheduled for a earlier time time then the actual. In such a case development of product and integration of similar kind of product is done in the same line.Hence here we need to go for a testing where integration of component and then the implementation is done to produce a sub part of the whole system.
It is basically a top-don testing approach.
It is done is incremental development process.

its a top-down approach only know

  Was this answer useful?  Yes

It is a top-down approach. Here threads are like small components and has small functionality. It is mainly applied for larger projects which contains many such small functionality which integrate together to make it a larger project.

So in thread testing all individual threads (i.e. small functionality) are tested, then all these threads are integrated and the application is tested as a whole.

I think it is a process of multiuser testing a work at a time
