Software Testing Methodologies

Reap the Benefits of Our Global Software Testing Methodologies

Agile Testing Methodology

V-Testing Methodolgy

Definition

Agile Testing Methodology follows the principles of ‘Agile Manifesto’. Agile methodology supports testing cycle, depending on the customer’s point of view and requirements to perform tests initially. Agile testing starts after the developed code is made available and is steady enough for the component or unit stage testing. V-Testing Model is nothing but a part of software development model dependent on the connections between every segment of the product or software development cycle.

Response to Changing Requirements

One of the biggest advantages of using Agile methodology is its capability of adapting to the changing requirements of the software development project. In contrast, V-Model is less flexible and is prone to variable requirements at any stage. However, if any change takes place in the middle of V-Model, then restructuring the texting documentation based on changes in the requirement.

Software Development

Agile methodology works well with the ongoing software development project to deliver working version of the product at early stage compared to V Model. Additionally, Agile method uses Test Driven Development (TDD) Approach to carry out testing parallel to development and to avoid over coding. V-Testing Methodology is a software development model where the ascending path is testing done for verification while the corresponding descending path is a design phase used for validation. V model provides equal weight to coding and testing allowing creation of testing document alongside the design/code document.

Benefits

  • Testing cycle time is decreased in Agile Testing as it performs tests parallel to the development cycle.
  • Due to the repetitive nature of Agile Testing Methodology, it helps in achieving incremental delivery of the features.
  • Agile Methodology works on the principal of incorporating testing throughout the software development lifecycle. This allows thorough testing of the product through all phases of the Agile testing methodology. This allows the development team to deploy changes as and when required, providing an advanced vision of quality drawbacks to the agile development team.
  • As the name suggests, V-Model is both ‘Verification’ and ‘Validation’ carrying out verification and validation both simultaneously.
  • In the V-Model, additional importance is emphasized on the strict flow for developing a superior product.
  • V- Testing model is good for proactive defect tracking, which makes it easier to find the defects at early stages. Additionally, different testing activities like planning, test designing etc occur well before coding thereby saving a lot of time.

We Use Both Software Testing Delivery Models

Both V and Agile are mature software testing methodologies having been involved in software development cycle for a long time. More often, it depends on the organization to choose the precise testing methodology that suits their budget and requirement. With extensive experience in testing services, we at UCS Consulting understand what software testing delivery model will be more suitable to our clients depending on their projects and expectations.

We opt for Agile Testing Methodology for projects requiring frequent changes and for products expecting short time delivery with skilled resources. We opt for V Testing Methodology for projects where the requirements are signed off, for projects requiring validation in each phase and for projects wherein testers need to be involved in early stage of the software development lifecycle.

With expert resources and ISTQB certified testers, we switch meticulously between Agile and V Testing Methodology
