Software Testing & Software Quality Assurance

Here we review various questions that may come into your mind on software testing and quality assurance in your projects in Toronto.

What are the different Types of Software Testing?web-site-a-b-testing-optimization-york-region

We, as testers are aware of the various types of Software Testing such as Functional Testing, Non-Functional Testing, Automation Testing, Agile Testing, and their sub-types etc.

Each of us would have come across several types of testing in our testing journey. We might have heard some and we might have worked on some, but not everyone has knowledge about all the testing types.

Each type of testing has its own features, advantages, and disadvantages as well. However, in this article, I have covered mostly each and every type of software testing which we usually use in our day to day testing life. Here is a list:

Different Types Of Software Testing

Given below is the list of some common types of Software Testing:

Functional testing types include:

  • Unit testing
  • Integration testing
  • System testing
  • Sanity testing
  • Smoke testing
  • Interface testing
  • Regression testing
  • Beta/Acceptance testing


Non-functional testing types include:

  • Performance Testing
  • Load testing
  • Stress testing
  • Volume testing
  • Security testing
  • Compatibility testing
  • Install testing
  • Recovery testing
  • Reliability testing
  • Usability testing
  • Compliance testing
  • Localization testing

Let’s see more details about these testing types.

Functional testing

Functional testing is a type of software testing whereby the system is tested against the functional requirements/specifications. Functions (or features) are tested by feeding them input and examining the output. Functional testing ensures that the requirements are properly satisfied by the application. This type of testing is not concerned with how processing occurs, but rather, with the results of processing. It simulates actual system usage but does not make any system structure assumptions.


During functional testing, Black Box Testing technique is used in which the internal logic of the system being tested is not known to the tester. Functional testing is normally performed during the levels of System Testing and Acceptance Testing.

  • Typically, functional testing involves the following steps:
  • Identify functions that the software is expected to perform.
  • Create input data based on the function’s specifications.
  • Determine the output based on the function’s specifications.
  • Execute the test case.
  • Compare the actual and expected outputs.

Functional testing is more effective when the test conditions are created directly from user/business requirements. When test conditions are created from the system documentation (system requirements/ design documents), the defects in that documentation will not be detected through testing and this may be the cause of end-users’ wrath when they finally use the software.

Functional testing is a significant component for fortifying the nature of a software system. Executed during the beginning stage of software development, it keeps up the usefulness and nature of the system and guarantees the stability of the final product. Functional testing manages the functionality of the application and its relation to the clients. Aside from testing functionalities of the system, it covers other essential aspects such as basic usability, accessibility, and so forth. To guarantee meticulous analysis of the useful areas of a software item, functional testing is performed at various dimensions of software development process through:

  • Unit Testing
  • Integration Testing
  • System Testing
  • User Acceptance Testing

Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance’s (QA) Functional Testing Services guarantee the verification and approval of uses for independent software merchants and ventures. Functional testing is one of our fortes here at our organization. Our people group of expert testers can lead the expected tests to decide if there are any bugs, broken connections, spelling botches or some other sort of mistakes in your product that may contrarily influence your clients’ experience.

The intensity of QA in Toronto enables us to invite a broad range of test engineers to participate these tests, who bring their very own point of view and background to the test. Using our test team in supporting your projects, whether a web site, an application, a mobile app or any other software is proven to yield desirable outcomes over conventional model where you pay an individual on an hourly basis to find some of the bug.
