  • How will you find the bugs if the application is partially running?

    Star Read Best Answer

    Editorial / Best Answer


    • Member Since Nov-2009 | Dec 11th, 2009

    Generally, when an application is partially running, it is no longer in a stable state suitable for testing.  Reboot your system (or reinstall a clean image of the build) and attempt to reproduce the issue, paying particular attention to the steps required to get there. Document your findings in a defect report.  Don't forget to include screen shot(s). If error messages are returned by the application during failure, include this in your report.

    If you want to determine the source of the existing defect, then check the Error Logs on the local and/or serving computers.  The error messages in these logs will often describe the nature and source of the problem. Testers can set the Event Filter of this log if they know the event type or session they wish to examine.  Event Details provides an exception stack trace that can be included in the defect report.

    • Member Since Feb-2009 | Mar 25th, 2009

    Priority will be given based on stage of life cycle,

    1) Assume that application is middle stage (I mean to say build is 3rd one and still few more to come) and you are testing the application to accept it (Smoke/sanity Testing) for further testing I would like to give the preference as B, A, C Why I am giving last preference to C is when I am giving uncommon string then the application is getting crash, but as of now we have alternative and that is positive value, so with positive value we can work with the application Next why A is given second preference “black berry” Its company Name, not a simple title of application

    And lastly why I am giving first preference to BI am not able to launch the application in first attempt then it is a major issue, while accepting the build (smoke/sanity testing) if you are not able to launch then definitely we will reject the build.

    2) Assume application is completed and ready for use, then also I will give B, A, C Let me tell you in general way, Suppose you are a customer and interested to purchase Blackberry mobile and if it is not launching in first attempt, do you purchase that piece, no one will purchase, and coming second one company Label, Company goodwill is linked to it, and with this mistakes goodwill will be degraded so second preference, and coming to last one we have an alternative and that is we can give positive values with which that particular functionality will work Please correct me if I am wrong.


    • Jun 30th, 2016

    Bug is fixed according to its priority i.e
    1) Very High: Immediate fix needed, block further testing.
    2) High: Must get fixed before the product is released.

    4) Low: Would like to fix but can be released as it is.

  • difference between alpha Testing and beta testing

    Editorial / Best Answer


    • Member Since Jul-2008 | Jul 17th, 2008

    If the project or product is developed for multiple customers, acceptance testing will be conducted in two phases called Alpha and Beta testing.

    Alpha:  Acceptance testing conducted by the customer  in the developed environment.

    This testing will be conducted to identify all the potential issues before releasing it(product/project) to the customers.

    Beta: Acceptance testing conducted by the multiple customers in the customer environment.

    Alpha and beta always prefered for the products.
