Software Testing Tools

Software Testing is the most important phase in any software development project, so that we can know whether our project is going to be successful or it will fail before it goes live.

Software Testing is a process used to identify the correctness, completeness and quality of developed software. In reality, testing can never establish the correctness of the software. It can only find defects. The testing process is carried out either manual or using automation tools or an effective combination of both.

Automation testing is expensive in terms of cost. It does not replace the need for manual testing or enable you to down-size your testing department. Automated testing is an addition to your testing process.

In Automation testing, tools are essential for every testing activity. It will be very difficult for any test engineer to perform all the testing activities without proper tool. There are many testing tools are available for Functional Testing, Security Testing, Unit Testing, Test Management, Test execution and Reporting.

Testing Tools are divided in to 6 Categories:

Functional Test Automation Tools

Load and Performance Tools

Test Management Tools

Bug Tracking Tools

Mobile Testing Tools

  • Mobile Application Development Tools
  • Mobile Application Testing Tools
  • Mobile Website Testing Tools

Utility Tools

  • PuTTy
  • WinSCP 4.2.6
  • Cookie Manager

You can add Katalon Studio to the list above. It is a simple but powerful enough for all projects. Katalon Studio has keywords and execution engines that are built on top of the Selenium and Appium web drivers. By this, It eliminates the substantial amount of effort required to install and configure additional test frameworks, reporting and supporting applications in order to use Selenium and Appium.

Team collaboration is supported with the objects and data management and reporting features.

What is the best Test management tool ever in terms of importing test cases from Xlsx and CSV format and also have customized field properties

also if a single test case have multiple rows , it could be imported as single test with multiple lines

If anyone knows any thread, please let me know. Thanks

Hi, There is a Bug Tracking and visual feedback tool called zipBoard. It helped a lot and made testing a lot easier. I think It should be added to the list

Variant test: Make your decision – or don’t make your decision!

Dear community,

Maintain an overview of systems with many variants with the help of TestBench:

The new TestBench version 2.4.2 allows you to specify your test cases for their basic functionality (which all variants have in common) and variant-specific functionality.

 Whether you want to examine the common functionalities of all variants or you only have to test additional functions of certain variants: TestBench screens at the push of a button the right test cases for a certain product variant. Variant-specific tests data can be inserted automatically and the test steps adapted to the respective variant.

You would like to experience TestBench live?

The German-language TestBench-Tag provides a compact overview over the most important functions – also beyond variants test. Subsequently you can put TestBench through its paces thanks to a one month evaluation license.

Thanks for sharing a nice post!! And also Thanks for sharing the list of Testing Tools and Categories!! I guess not all Automation testing tools are expensive and I would like to request you to add ClicTest in the list. ClicTest is the single-window testing solution for all the testing needs. It is an efficient and reliable Testing tool/solution which fits in all the listed categories.

ClicTest can be even used on Cloud with pay-per-use model. It lets a company to significantly reduce in-house testing costs.  One can perform Functional Testing, Performance Testing, Security Testing, Cross-browser and Cross-Platform Testing.  Even, one can perform End-to-End testing from Requirement Gathering to Reporting Bug.   It also helps a company’s long existing manual testing team to perform Automation Testing without needing to collect any technical knowledge.

Could any one tell me how to add testing tools to this page? I wanted to raise some awareness for an awesome testing tool that i found recently. 

I was testing an application recently where the code kept changing constantly. It was really painful to test because the load of the added rework made automation near impossible, and my existing work load was already through the roof. Sometimes it’s really hard to tell if you are testing enough or even testing the right things!


Anyways, I came across this test automation tool recently and thought that I'd give it a shot - it’s called Tosca Testsuite (here is a link to their website: http://www.tricentis.com/resource-assets/tosca-testsuite-overview/). So far the tool has helped solve my biggest issues. It uses risk optimization to tell you what test cases you should be testing, manages test data, and allows you to build test cases with model based test automation. I thought I’d spread the word, hopefully it will be helpful to some of you as well!

Try our model based testing tool named Matelo that allows you to generate test cases and test scripts automatically thanks to the Model Based approach.

If any demo or more info needed, contact me at : julie.lagree@all4tec.net

@Adnan You should check out Smartbear's TestComplete. It works great with Web apps and cross browser testing.

Test Case internet (TCW) is a web TCM system designed with PHP and a SQL backend. It provides an economical means that for generation, organization, and execution reporting of check cases among comes and by multiple testers and mainframe testing tools. It provides varied at-a-glance views of the check suite for straightforward standing determination and check suite navigation. TCW conjointly provides basic reporting capabilities and per-project access management.

Comment by Cheezy on June 2, 2012 at 10:52pm

Two suggestions.  

First of all could you please add Cucumber to your list of functional testing tools?

Secondly, your basic premise that automation is more expensive than manual testing does not seem to coincide with what most of the industry believes.  When talking about "manual" testing we really need to be clear on what we are talking about.  Are you talking about Exploratory Testing?  If so, it is not the same as automation and therefore you should not compare the cost of the two.  If you are talking about manually executing a test script then I (and many in the industry) believe that is far more expensive than automation.  I would suggest either removing that statement or updating it to state that the cost of automation vs executing manual scripts is in dispute.
