    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.

    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.
    3) Medium: Should fix if time permits.
    4) Low: Would like to fix but can be released as it is.

    I hope that the following ans is helpful... 1) In these scenarios first we have to fix B, why because with out lancing of the application we cant do anything. 2) Secondly we have to fix A. why becau...

    1. Type 0~5 and 7~9 for Calculator, make sure whether the other numbers can be inputed. (This is to check Calculator can do wht number input well or not)

    2. Try 18/3 for example with Calculator (This is to check 6 can be displayed well or not)
    3. Exit Calculator, dial a telephone number which contains 6 or try other applications (for example email/text/address...) to input number 6(This is to check key "6" works well or not outside of Calculator)

  • Co-existence Testing

    What is co-existence testing? Why do we do it? What would be the passing criteria for a successful co-existence? Any sample application where you feel we require this kind of testing?

    Coexistence testing involves the working of application, on different hardware & software configurations. It checks the performance of the application with different combinations of different types of resources.

    Compatibility testing checks if the two systems or two different resources are able to exchange the information successfully when an application is implemented or installed. This testing is usually performed when an already existing program is replaced with a new application.


    • Jan 21st, 2015

    Do we have any specific tools to perform the co existance testing or a functional automation tool can automate these activities ?
    Please help.


    • Dec 24th, 2009

    Coexistence testing seeks to identify issues when an application works alongside or interacts with other target software on the same machine.  Coexistence testing answers questions such as:1) Wil...
