    Re: GUI & functional testing

    GUI is testing the interfaces of the application under test while functional testing is testing the functionalities of the applications as a whole.

    Re: GUI & functional testing

    In Black box testing we test the functionality(Play with test data)...
    In GUI testing we test the interfaces like applet generation even spelling mistakes...

    Thanks

    Functional testing is nothing but meeting the client functionalities and GUI testing is nothing but testing the user interface to check the user friendlyness of screens.

    Re: GUI & functional testing

    In GUI Testing, we check:

    01. Colours of the screens (should be pleasant)
    02. Availability of all controls (like labels, text boxes, check boxes, etc)
    03. Alignment of all controls (should properly aligned)
    04. No text or label is overlapped or wrapped
    05. Spelling mistakes
    06. Easily understandable error messages, etc

    Re: GUI & functional testing

    GUI means graphical user interface. In GUI testing we check the look and feel of the application such as font color, whether the link are clickable, alignment of text boxes, labels, command button etc. whereas black box testing we check the external functionality of the application.

    Hi Sakshi,

    "whether the link are clickable" comes under functional testing. It won't come under GUI testing.

    Re: GUI & functional testing

    GUI testing is generally for usability testing.

    Functionality testing is for behavior of application to test.

    Black BOx testing has divided into differnet parts such as
    1. Standization testing-- he u test how does it look as per user (srs) and microsoft 6 standards
    2. GUI testing -- here u test all the keys r present are not as per srs
    3.Functional testing -- here u test keys are working or not
    4. Validation testing -- here u perform the actions with that keys and validate the results

    Re: GUI & functional testing

    Hi Ganesh,

    "whether the links are clickable" comes under GUI testing, because, the purpose of the link is to show another page or image....we don't bother about the result after clicking on the link, but we have to check whether the link is getting highlighted when we put the mouse on it and whether we are able to click on it

    Thanks

    Hi Deelip,

    I guess you are not right.
    "whether the link is clickable.." comes under functional testing.
    Whenever we check anything is working or not( bother or dont bother about the result)it comes under functional testing.
    GUI testing is only related to looks,appearance,colour,font,alignment etc to check whether these can meet the actual requirement or not.No scope of doing any action in the front page.

    Thanks.
    Chiranjib.

    Hi Bussareddy,

    01. Standization testing & GUI testing - both are one and the same.
    02. Validation testing is part of Functional testing.

    Dear forum, please let me know if I am wrong.

    Regards,
    Ganesh
