Is Manual Testing Dying?
Manual Testing will never dead, but slowly Manual Testing importance may be reduced Manual Testing or Automation Testing that depends on Type of software, Type of Testing, and Production Environment etc…
Software Testing can be done in 2 ways,
1) Manual Testing
2) Test Automation or Automated Testing
Automation Testing can’t cover 100% test case, so some companies just use Automation Testing for regression test only.
Generally Manual Testing is used first then we will use Automation Test to
cover all areas quickly.
Automated tests are well – automatic. They won’t interact with the system as a
real user. Manual testing is the best testing approach for UI and Ad-Hoc testing.
Using Automated Testing we can quickly test the system, Data Driven Testing, Batch Testing, and Parallel Testing are possible and easy but Test Tools have several limitations,
Ex 1: Environment Limitations
1) UFT/QTP supports Windows Operating Environment only
2) Selenium Supports Web Application Testing only
Ex 2: Test Type Limitations,
Suppose if we are conducting Functional Testing then we have to use UFT/QTP or Selenium, SilkTest etc…if we conduct performance Testing then we have to use either LoadRunner or JMeter etc…
If it is manual Testing No environment Limitations and no test type limitations
to test Software Applications, Suppose Applications on UNIX Environment or Windows Environment and we can test Web Applications and Desktop Applications or any type of Software applications. And one more thing Manual Testing is more suitable for Games Software Testing.
Conclusion, Manual Testing knowledge is important for Software Testing even though we follow Automated Testing, but nowadays we can’t get Software Testing Job with only Manual Testing, apart from Manual Testing focus on Automated Testing also then we can easily get the Job and Survive.
Anyhow Software Testing is mandatory in Software Development in order release quality Software and maintains the Software…Follow me on social media:
