Smoke Testing

Smoke Testing

A technique called smoke testing is employed to ascertain the stability of the software version that is currently in use. The quality assurance team will now be able to move forward with testing the feature in a later version thanks to this confirmation. It is a set of tests that must be performed at a minimum for every build of an application. The practise of delivering a software build to a QA environment and testing it to ensure that it is stable and performs as intended is known as smoke testing. A smoke test may also be referred to as a build verification test or a confidence test.

The build that we are testing is inspected to ensure that all the important features are working and that there are no showstoppers in the build we are testing. A smoke test shows that the product has been approved for testing, so it can be put to the test. It is important to do this so that we can determine whether the build is flawed to the point where any further testing would be a waste of time and resources.

Benefits of Smoke Testing

  • Identify and resolve issues that occur during the integration of the various modules of the system
  • Software defects are detected at an early stage of the software development process and can be corrected
  • It is possible to troubleshoot new bugs as well as regression test bugs more quickly with smoke testing
  • As the end-to-end process of software testing is completed in a phase-by-phase manner, integration is reduced
  • Improves the quality of the product and ensures that all major functionalities are working properly

Smoke Testing

  • To document the smoke testing process, a report that summarizes the findings of the test is prepared
  • There may be times when smoke testing is stable, but there may also be times when it is unstable
  • As a way of ensuring consistency in the smoke testing process, the process is scripted
  • Smoke testing is one of the types of regression tests, and it is one of the types of regression tests that there are
  • It is usually the responsibility of quality assurance engineers to conduct smoke tests as part of the work they do as part of their job functions

Why QualiAgile

By locating the areas in the build process where there are bottlenecks and fixing them on a professional level, we assist clients with their quality assurance programmes. Due to the years of experience of our testing specialists, we begin by creating a strategy that works in tandem with the business needs of our clients to get the best optimum results & outcomes. The software development lifecycle is a continuous process that needs our team’s attention and support around-the-clock. Depending on our clients’ wishes & requirements and needs, we either manually or automatically do the smoke tests that we perform.

When we perform the software build process, our team records all manual steps that are performed during the process, and as soon as the build is deployed, the test is passed and we proceed to the functional testing phase.

Highlights of QualiAgile services:

  • We provide end-to-end testing solutions as well as independent software testing services
  • The ability to identify and verify test requirements must be understood, identified, and verified and we do that
  • We draft a test report, the first thing that needs to be done is to create a test traceability matrix
  • We establish a system to track and monitor test defects from the very beginning of the process
  • We analyze whether the functionality of the application has any defects that need to be fixed
