Interview’s Logic Tests

Yes Guys !

I will write a post about this, because recently I made some logic tests that are VERY VERY easy, but because of my nervous I made some mistakes :/ Really, I have to stop to stay anxious about something… So, let’s go:

Tests Fibonnaci – JAVA:

package Tests;
public class Main {
    static long fibo(int n) {
       if (n < 2) {
          return n;
else {
          return fibo(n – 1) + fibo(n – 2);
}
}
public static void main(String[] args) { // test
        for (int i = 0; i < 15; i++) {
System.out.print(Main.fibo(i) + “\t”);
}
}
}

Tests Reverse String – JAVA:

package Tests;


public class Main {

    static String converse() {
        String a = "This is a string...";
        String b = "";

        for (int i = a.length() - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
            b = b + a.charAt(i);
        }
        return b;
    }

    public static void main(String[] args) { // test 
      System.out.println(Main.converse());

    }
}

JMeter Setup on Mac

In summary, this initial setup will create a way for you to record all of the requests that get made when using your web-application. From here, you can save certain thread sets and run tests where multiple instances of these thread-sets are sent to your web app.

My plan is to use this to record what Selenium does, and then use that for load testing. If I use Selenium IDE to make the aforementioned Selenium routines, the redundancy is hilarious. But in all seriousness, I am really excited to pair the two of them together. I am a bit worried though about whether JMeter can keep up with Selenium…
What I am wondering is ‘What benefit is there to using JMeter over Fiddler?’… probably has to do with being able to integrate JUnit tests etc more easily… but I don’t know. Any comments?
First: Installation

  1. Download JMeter. You may download the source code and build it yourself, or you may download the binaries. I just downloaded the binaries.
  2. While on the JMeter Download page, follow the instructions provided to verify the md5 (Mac OSX Snow Leopard Server does not come with pgp, gpg, or pgpk.)
    • In Terminal.app
      • md5 jakarta-jmeter-2.5.1.zip
    • Click ‘md5’ next to the version of JMeter you downloaded. There will be a 20 character value shown, and it should match what you got in the the terminal. A quick way to check this is to just use ⌘+F in your browser and copy in your results from the terminal. 
  3. In your Finder, uncompress jakarta-jmeter-2.5.1, and drill down into the directory called ‘bin’.
  4. Open ApacheJMeter.jar
    • If you prefer the Terminal, use the following:
    • sh ./jakarta-jmeter-2.5.1/bin/jmeter.sh
Setup & Tuning-in to your web-browser
  1. Add (via right click) a Thread group to the Test Plan 1
  2. Add a Non Test Element > HTTP Proxy Server to the Workbench 2
  3. Open the HTTP Proxy Server Page and change the port if required 3
  4. Set the Target Controller to Test Plan > Thread Group on the same page 4
  5. Configure your browser to use the Proxy Server (it’s localhost) 5
    1. Zac Spitzer recommends Firefox. This is probably the case because you can set up proxying internally to Firefox without messing around with your system settings. If you try to go ‘Under the Hood’ in Chrome or into Safari’s ‘Change Settings…’ dialog, it will kick you right into your system preferences. Please note that if your workplace has a special proxy configuration already, or any other network settings that might interfere with setting this up, don’t fight it: submit a ticket to IT. 
      1. ⌘+,
      2. In ‘Advanced’, go to your connection settings and set up your localhost as a proxy server. You can assign different ports to different protocols. 
  6. Press Start at the bottom of the page 6

Now, JMeter will record all the HTTP requests your browser makes, so make sure you have closed all the other tabs you have open. 7

Don’t forget to reset your browser proxy settings! 8

You can delete any requests you don’t want from the list at any time. 9

Remember to read the documentation and be careful! Make sure you know what servers will be affected by your testing, and don’t jump to simple conclusions, 3-tier web apps are complex beasts. 10

What is cross-browser ? Why I have to perform it ?

Nowadays, we have to test our application in a lot of browsers, but how ?

Cross-browser testing is chose to guarantee that a website or web application works on different browsers and it involves compatibility check and testing of both client-side apps.

According to the statistics from W3Schools, Chrome is one of the most popular browsers these days with 54.1% market share followed by Firefox with 27.2% market share. On the other hand Internet explorer is at third place with 11.7% market share followed by Safari and Opera.

Maybe your website will look very different in all these browsers as each of the browsers will understand some code a little differently than the other one. For this reason, it is important to perform cross-browser testing to ensure your website runs on all the mainly browsers.

Reasons to test your website in other browser:

-Running browser specific tests will spend more time.

-Customers never like to use the same browser.

-Mobile is in demand. Pay attention in mobile browsers.

-New technology is not supported by all browsers.

-You have to worry with the Security too.

-No one likes to maintain separate tests for each and every browser. (Of course, it is boring)

 

Browser Compatibility?

Check whether the application works the way it should across all the browsers, you should take a look at the following ingredients of a web application or website:

-HTML:

– CSS Styles & CSS Validations:

– Sessions & Cookies:

-JavaScript:

– Text Alignments & Page Layouts:

There are several other important areas of web applications to be considered for achieving 100% cross-browser compatibility such as:

-Font Sizes
-Mouse Hover
-SSL Certificates
-Upload File
-Export File
-Scroll Bar Appearance
-Flash Work
-Page Zoom In/Out
-Pop Ups
-Space between various HTML components, etc.

Functional Testing?

> There are 5 actively used versions of Internet Explorer, 8 versions of Firefox, 7 versions of Chrome, 3 versions of Safari and 3 versions of Opera. That makes a total of 26 versions of browsers on which to test your application.

> Even if you cut down to the main versions of each of the main browsers, you will have to repeat your web application testing at least 9 times.

> You need to test your application on multiple browser versions every time your application has a new release.

> You need to test your application on multiple browser versions every time the browser has a new release. Firefox releases a new version almost every 2 weeks.

> Manual testing on each browser version is time consuming, monotonous and prone to human errors.

Jmeter Tutorial – First step (Test Performance)

When I know to stop a test?

Good morning/afternoon/evening for everyone !

Today I will talk about one thing that every tester must to know: How do you know when you should stop testing? 

Everyone want to test everything, but we know that it is impossible. So, what we can do ? This is some guidelines that you can follow:

 

Set Time Guidelines

Provide a block of time to perform the initial tests. Then review the test results to determine next testing steps based upon the requirements and what you learned by performing the initial tests. Continue this process until testing has been completed. By going through this process will help train you how to think through the requirements, testing results, risks, identifying new testing ideas, and determining when to stop testing.

Sometimes the initial testing assignments are small enough to be completed in one or two testing sessions. As the assignments become larger it is beneficial to test in a continual feedback mode with a more experience tester.

 

Experience and Time

It is important to ask questions about what you are testing because this will help you understand
how much time to spend testing. 

  • Based upon the requirements, I am planning on performing the following tests;
  • Based upon what I learned during testing, I am going to perform the following tests and I am not going to perform the following tests. 
  • As an overview of my testing I performed the following tests and I did not test the following functionality. 

Diminishing Returns and Use of time 

Spending more time performing additional tests does not necessarily equate to added test value. There becomes a point where sufficient information and value has been gathered through testing and spending additional time testing will not necessary produce more valuable information. Instead, spending this additional testing time on a different testing problem could be a better use of time. When thinking about what is the best use of my testing time, a tester needs to consider time constraints and what testing problems are still outstanding. For example you have to test problem A and B. You have already spent a lot of time testing problem A and have gathered a lot of valuable information. At this point, is it better to spend more time performing additional tests or should I move on to test problem B?

 

Risk Level of the Testing Issue

The higher the risk typically means you will spend more time testing. However, that needs to be balanced with the scope of the problem. For example, a high risk change that touches many areas of the product will require more testing time than a high risk change that touches a very small, isolated part of the product.

Using Robotium to automate Test in Android

Hello guys !

Today I will write about the benefits of using Robotium to automate the tests in apps of Android Cellphones. I hope that this list help you to decide what is the better tool to you use.

Robotium is an Android test automation framework that has full support for native and hybrid applications. Robotium makes it easy to write powerful and robust automatic black-box UI tests for Android applications. With the support of Robotium, test case developers can write function, system and user acceptance test scenarios, spanning multiple Android activities.

 

  • Test Android apps, both native and hybrid.
  • Requires minimal knowledge of the application under test.
  • The framework handles multiple Android activities automatically.
  • Minimal time needed to write solid test cases.
  • Readability of test cases is greatly improved, compared to standard instrumentation tests.
  • Test cases are more robust due to the run-time binding to UI components.
  • Fast test case execution.
  • Integrates smoothly with Maven, Gradle or Ant to run tests as part of continuous integration.

 

Bye 🙂
