For any company developing software, at some point pressure to reach
This post aims to explain very briefly, the meaning of terms SEI, CMM, CMMI, ISO, IEEE and ANSI.
SEI refers to Software Engineering Institute of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, it helps to improve software development process. SEI offers technical guidance for advanced practice in software engineering.
CMM refers to ‘Capability Maturity Model’, presently called as CMMI ‘Capability Maturity Model Integration’; it was developed by SEI and used to understand the processes
Negative test cases are designed to test the software in ways it was not intended to be used, and should be a part of your testing effort. Below are the top 10 negative test cases
While everyone knows the theoretical limitations of software testing, in practice we devote considerable effort to this task and would consider it foolish or downright dangerous to skip it.

What is a Test Case?
A test case is a set of conditions or variables and inputs that are developed for a particular goal or objective to be achieved on a certain application to judge its
During the course of a typical testing phase, as the defects are detected (hopefully!), the analysis of defects can give surprising results!
In most cases, it can be seen that the majority of the detected defects
1. What is a test script defect?
During a testing phase, it is not uncommon at all that testers face issues other than application failures. It is believed that during the first cycle of testing, about
Finding defects and reporting defects are the main activities of the testing. In this article I endeavour to explain the Software Defect Lifecycle and the Defect Process in general. I will list all the activities
State transition testing is used where some aspect of the system can be described in what is called a “finite state machine”. This simply means that the system can be in a (finite) number of
