Manual Testing Step by Step Tutorial

Software Testing is a process of verifying whether the software is working as per its requirements.

Software Testing is done by in two ways,
1) Manual Testing
2) Automated Testing

Manual Testing: Testing computer software manually without using any test tool or test script

Automated Testing: Testing computer software by using a test tool or test script.

Programming knowledge is not required for Manual Testing, but it is required for Automated Testing, for Manual Testing, Analytical skills and documentation knowledge is sufficient.

Software Testing is not a single activity, it is a process.

Manual Testing Process

> Understanding Software Requirements / User Stories
> Derive Test Scenarios
> Document Test Cases
> Collect Test Data
> Execute / Run Test Cases
> Finding & Reporting Defects
> Tracking Defects
> Change Related Testing and Closing Defects
> Test Cycle Closure

Example:

Software Application: gcrShop application Admin interface Login page (https://gcreddy.com/project/admin/login.php),

Functional Test Requirement: Admin User should login to the application with valid login credentials

We can write positive and negative test scenarios for this requirement, and the completeness of Software testing Positive and Negative Testing.

Test scenarios:

1) Admin user login with Valid username and Valid password (Positive Test Scenario)

2) Admin user login with Invalid username and valid password (Negative Test Scenario 1)

3) Admin user login with Valid username and Invalid password (Negative Test Scenario 2)

4) Admin user login with Invalid username and Invalid password (Negative Test Scenario 3)

Etc…

Test Case:

Test Case ID: gcrShop_adm_TC001

Test Case Name: Admin user login with Valid username and Valid password (Positive Test Case)

Test Steps:

1) Launch Browser
2) Navigate to gcrShop admin interface login page by providing valid URL (https://gcreddy.com/project/admin/login.php)
3) Enter Username
4) Enter Password
5) Click Login Button

Input Data / Test Data:

Username: gcreddy
Password: [email protected]

Expected: Existence of LogOff Link (after successful login)

Verification Point:

Check the existence of “LogOff” Link, if it is exits then pass otherwise fail

Actual Result: * After Test case execution

Test Result: * After Test case execution
