Functional testing at W3Softech ensures proper work flow, data acceptance, processing, and retrieval, as documented in the user stories, use cases and business rules. Exercise all required functionality of the product to identify defects in business functionality and business rules, including navigation, data entry, processing, and retrieval. Functional Testing at W3Softech follows agile methodology. User stories are articulated as per the defined process and the story points are estimated for various tasks.
Meticulous sprint planning is done at the beginning of each sprint and Scrum meetings are held to ensure that all the sprint tasks are completed as per the schedule. We deploy various Black box testing techniques as part of functional testing to uncover defects and ensure adequate test coverage. We follow "Test Driven Development" and "Continuous Integration Testing" to ensure that the code is right and regression is not caused.
W3Softech uses it's own Test Framework (W3TF) comprising of the best practices, checklists and guidelines in the software test life cycle(STLC). We employ "Risk Based Testing Approach" to optimize testing. W3Softech has institutionalized this practice at their clients and shown substantial reduction in the regression cycle times.
The W3Softech Test Framework enables the reusability of all the artifacts in the Software Test Life Cycle. We follow Metrics based approach to have visibility and accountability into various projects. These metrics are measured at both project and program level and they pertain to test cases and defects as well. W3Softech has a robust mechanism of reporting the test status of the projects generating these metrics and creating meaningful role based dash boards.
We use different tools to capture the data needed to generate these metrics and W3Softech uses its own process of integrating the test case management tools with Defect tracking tools to enable us to generate the metrics on a real-time basis. W3Softech Test framework insists the review of the test cases mandatorily and the review effectiveness is measured to make the functional testing more efficient.
