      2. Algorithm


      Hierarchy of Collection FrameworkLet us see the hierarchy of collection framework.The java.util package contains all the classes and interfaces for Collection framework.
      hierarchy of collection framework


      Methods of Collection interface

      There are many methods declared in the Collection interface. They are as follows:
      No. Method Description
      1 public boolean add(Object element) is used to insert an element in this collection.
      2 public boolean addAll(Collection c) is used to insert the specified collection elements in the invoking collection.
      3 public boolean remove(Object element) is used to delete an element from this collection.
      4 public boolean removeAll(Collection c) is used to delete all the elements of specified collection from the invoking collection.
      5 public boolean retainAll(Collection c) is used to delete all the elements of invoking collection except the specified collection.
      6 public int size() return the total number of elements in the collection.
      7 public void clear() removes the total no of element from the collection.
      8 public boolean contains(Object element) is used to search an element.
      9 public boolean containsAll(Collection c) is used to search the specified collection in this collection.
      10 public Iterator iterator() returns an iterator.
      11 public Object[] toArray() converts collection into array.
      12 public boolean isEmpty() checks if collection is empty.
      13 public boolean equals(Object element) matches two collection.
      14 public int hashCode() returns the hashcode number for collection.

      Iterator interface

      Iterator interface provides the facility of iterating the elements in forward direction only. 

      Methods of Iterator interface

      There are only three methods in the Iterator interface. They are:

      No. Method Description
      1 public boolean hasNext() It returns true if iterator has more elements.
      2 public Object next() It returns the element and moves the
      cursor pointer to the next element.
      3 public void remove() It removes the last elements returned by the iterator.
      It is rarely used.

      Top 10 challenges of maintaining the mobile device lab

      Top 10 challenges of maintaining the mobile device lab





      This post is the continuation of the same topic and will talk about the challenges of maintaining a mobile device lab.
      Identifying and procuring the right devices for the testing need is an important first step. However, it is just the start of a continuous maintenance cycle. It is not uncommon to have around 30-40 in-house devices in the team. Maintaining these devices is a massive challenge in itself. Let us explore some of the problems of maintaining a device lab for the mobile app testing.

      1. Mobile devices can go missing easily, secure them

      Let me be clear, by implying security of the devices as a maintenance issue, I am not suggesting that people working in the office are thieves and you should start doubting them. Some of the high-end mobile devices are very expensive, and if there is a significant number of devices, it just makes sense to think about the security of these devices. There may be security breaches or accidental misplacement in the absence of a sensible security policy. Also, a defined security policy would make it easier for everyone to find and access these devices when needed.

      2. It is difficult to find a device with the right configuration, label them

      Imagine if you need to find an iPhone 5s with iOS 8.4.1 version in a maze of iPhone device. In the absence of any labelling system in place, it would take a while to find the right device for the right version of iOS. If you, and your teammates, have to spend 10-15 minutes every time you need a device, it is a waste. It would be good to have vital information about the device, such as OS version, device name, model number, storage, etc. on a label that can be stuck on the device. If you have a rack where you can store these devices, you might want to organise these racks according to devices, OS, and so on.

      3. Label on the device and the device configuration do not match, update labels frequently

      Putting labels on the devices is an important first step. However, it is important to ensure that labels are updated and do not give the wrong information. Most of the OSes and applications can push upgrades rather aggressively, and it is important to ensure that test devices maintain the version numbers they are provisioned for and not upgraded frequently. If devices are upgraded, it should happen consciously, as a managed task that should only be considered done when the label associated with the device is also updated. It would be nice to automate this process, maybe with an app that can send device information to a confluence page periodically? In case you want to build one, here is an idea 🙂

      4. Who has got the iPhone 4S with iOS 8? Maintain register

      People often have a legitimate need to take the device to their desk, or even out of the office. In the absence of a device register, that can give us information on who has got a device; It would be very tricky for the team to get hold of the devices they need. It might feel that maintaining a device register and asking your teammates to sign-in and out every time they take a device for testing is overkill, however, It might bring accountability and predictability in the team. Defining a process and ensuring that everyone adheres to it would help a lot in keeping track of these devices that can get lost easily in an office corner. If resources permit, it is possible to take the pain out of this process by following an RFID-based approach that Etsy use to track the devices in use.

      5. Device register goes out of date, make someone owner

      Maintaining a device register and ensuring that the right labels are used for the racks and devices is an essential process for the mobile testing lab. However, in the absence of an owner for this process, it might become a bit tricky to ensure that everything is in order. It might be useful to create a role (rotate it monthly, maybe?) that take ownership of auditing devices periodically. The primary goal of setting up the device lab is to be able to get the devices we need predictably and reliably. Making someone accountable would make it easier to ensure that devices are maintained as they should be.

      6. Devices you need are always flat, keep them connected

      A mobile device without any charge is as good as a brick! It is a significant challenge to ensure that the mobile devices we have for testing are charged and can be used when needed. Remember, some devices can take ages to come back to life if their battery is completely dead. Managing power cables for all these devices, considering that most of them are incompatible with each other, is another challenge.  A mobile device rack that can hold all the power cables connected to a USB hub for charging all the devices might work well. If you do have a solution like that in place and have your mobile devices at 100% charged all the time, make sure that you mimic low battery conditions as well. Mobile devices do act differently depending on the battery level.

      7. Can not install the test app from the TestFlight and Crashlytics, use the same account

      Many teams use systems like Fabric or TestFlight to distribute test versions of their applications to the internal or external beta testers. For these systems to work effectively, devices have to be logged in with an account that is registered or approved on the Fabric or TestFlight. These systems need to know who will get access to the application. It is important to ensure that all the test devices are logged in with the right account. If that is not the case, it might not be possible to install test versions on these devices when needed. A visible policy page (confluence or something) or a shared password manager can help solve this problem.

      8. Got the device, how do I unlock it? Share passcode or pattern

      In a mobile device testing lab with 30+ devices, it is impossible to imagine that everyone in the team will be able to remember the passcode or the pattern. We often use an easy to remember passcode such as 0000 or a pattern such as a horizontal line to ensure that it is easier for the team to remember it. Also, it might be worthwhile for the device auditor to check this time to time and ensure that it is still valid and updated.

      9. I can’t reproduce customer reported defects! Keep phones in the normal condition

      What is the normal condition for a mobile phone? Well, it turns out, there is not any normal condition. Some people have tonnes of apps, photos, videos, etc. and some people have hardly any. The number of apps, available storage space, and battery level vary considerably for different users. These variations can affect how much resources are allocated to your mobile apps and as a result, how it performs in the wild. It is impossible to mimic all the possible combinations of the storage, memory, background apps, and so on, however, we should ensure that all of the test devices in the lab are not on the factory settings. They should have some level of variations to represent some common patterns.

      10. Can’t access the Internet from the device. Remember reset

      During our day-to-day testing activities, we often need to configure mobile devices to use a proxy server such as Charles to see the traffic and manipulate the response mobile apps can receive. However, if they are not reset properly after testing, other people may not be able to connect to the network and waste time in figuring out that the device is configured to use a proxy that is no longer running. Remember, non-technical people might also need to use the devices to test or demo the applications, so it is a good idea to keep all the devices in good condition. Similarly, if regions, locals or time zone is changed, it may have an effect of the app and it might be tricky for people to identify and rectify the situation. A good rule of thumb would be to specify a base state and ensure that all the test devices are in the same state.
      These are some of the challenges I have encountered in maintaining a device testing lab. If you are managing or in the process of setting up a mobile testing lab, you might find this list useful. Also, it would be good to know the challenges you have faced and the ways in which you have solved them.  Please comment to share and discuss with all of us.
      Cheers!

      Top 7 QA and Testing Trends in 2018

      Top 7 QA and Testing Trends in 2018






      The QA (Quality Assurance) and the Software Testing industries have observed rapid evolutions in the recent past. This accounts for the emergence of several new & disruptive processes and technologies. To keep pace with the ever-changing trends and advancements in the QA and software testing fields, the businesses have the need to adapt to these rapidly shifting demographics as soon as possible. In addition to the various technological disruptions, the QA and Software fraternity are facing a plethora of challenges. Most businesses aim towards reduction of development duration as these impact release cycles and provides faster go to market.
      As these trends keep changing, here are some predictions that we believe the QA and Software Testing industry might have to face in the coming times:
      1. Looking Forward to Agile & DevOps
      Several organizations across the globe are adopting the agile and DevOps in their software creation & development. Involving programmers or the testers during the early stages of development and delivering a product in the market at a rapid rate is one of the biggest trend prediction. With help of agile testing, the testers might be able to respond to the upcoming challenges faster and in a better manner.
      The DevOps technique calls for delivery of seamless integrations as well as collaboration between several departments. As such, this engages the developers into the QA processes and thus, increases the speed of deployment and promotes higher ROI.
      2. Cloud & Mobile Applications will be on the Mainstream
      The application store approval method is becoming more simplified and straightforward nowadays. As such, the world will observe a boom in the hybrid applications, including both cloud & mobile applications, which would require the users to stay online & offline equally. The QA and Software Testing industry would observe more frequent testing of the mobile & cloud applications on a larger scale. These applications can be tested by the release of a beta version and then, followed by receiving a good feedback.
      The applications that interact with the cloud environment will also be a part of the hybrid application and will thus, play a major role in shaping the development of the QA and Software Testing industry. In the recent years, the world has observed substantial investments on the cloud-architecture based platforms with the help of AWS (Amazon Web Service) and Cloud Test Lab of Google. With the presence of such big names, there is expected a pressure built-up among the hybrid application developers & testers to deliver excellent applications.
      3. Automated Software Testing
      Until now, the majority of the companies of the world rely on manual testing methods and strategies. This tends to be more redundant and sometimes, fails to generate the desired results. To obtain the proper fit & response of the product market, the enterprises will have to shift towards automated software testing. This technique will help in the generation of instant and more accurate results. Moreover, the qualified QA engineers and professionals can now divert their attention to more complicated areas of QA and software testing.
      4. IoT Testing
      With the trend of IoT growing rapidly, several high-end customers now rely upon IoT testing before they use the products.  Testing in terms of their functionality, effectiveness, and security has to be appropriate so it will not come under the scanner.
      5. Web Test Automation
      Being the best in the QA services, web testing automation tool still remains one of the best ways towards test fixing instantly, speed releasing cycles, and the rapid evolving of the code to catch major defects and thus, not prolong the deployment of the same. This field still calls for a lot of improvements as several companies still run manual testing strategies and now, must think about adopting the web test automation techniques to expedite their services.
      However,web test automation should not be considered easy. It could be highly challenging for several vendors and thus, it must be closely tailored to suit the specific demands of all the customers. In addition to this, there is also a hike in the number of users who are worried about the QA team being not able to handle the newly developed solutions. To comfort them, a proper approach could be adopted.
      6. Automated API & Microservices Testing
      The world has observed the evolution of API & Micro Services as a result of the digital disruption. Several large-scale companies are asking for effective API & Micro Services testing strategies. The major issues in the current times are limited tool sets that offer capabilities to test API & Micro Services. The main question here is how to setup automated verification for data completeness, ensure quality and responsiveness. As such, the QA and software testers needs to be highly surgical with respect to API testing with a light & careful approach.
      7. Security Testing
      As the technology industry is pacing forward with a whopping speed, there is a significant increase in the amount of information as well. As such, information security and continuous integration testing becomes a matter of concern to the larger companies to ensure the effective data flow without any leakage or breaching of confidential information. Therefore, security testing is another domain that the technology world is going to observe in the upcoming times.
      These were some of the important trends in the QA and software testing industry.
      Kindly do let us know what do you think about these or share your thoughts related to any other trends you feel are not included.
      Cheers!

      Best Automation Testing Tools for 2018 (Top 10 reviews)

      Best Automation Testing Tools for 2018 (Top 10 reviews)

      Software development practices change over time, so do the tools and technologies. Such changes aim to improve productivity, quality, customer satisfaction, to tackle ever-shorten delivery time, and to deliver successful products and services. Software testing obviously plays an important role in achieving these objectives.
      The recently released World Quality Report 2017–2018 by Capgemini, Sogeti, and Micro Focus points out several interesting trends in software quality and testing. Two of three key trends are increasing test automation and widespread adoption of agile and DevOps methodologies. As the report shows, organizations need intelligent automation and smart analytics to speed up decision making and validation and to better address the challenges of testing smarter devices and products that are highly integrated and continuously changing. The report also suggests the need of smart test platforms that are self-aware and self-adaptive to support the complete application lifecycle.
      In the test automation landscape, automation tools certainly take a center stage. This post summarizes the top test automation tools and frameworks that have the potential to help organisations to best position themselves to keep pace with the trends in software testing. The list includes both open-source and commercial test automation solutions.

                                       Top 5 Automation Testing Tools for 2018
      1. Selenium
      Selenium is possibly the most popular open-source test automation framework for Web applications.

RFT has a unique feature called Storyboard testing in which users’ actions on AUT are recorded and visualized in a storyboard format through application screenshots.
      Another interesting feature of RFT is its integration with IBM Jazz application lifecycle management systems such as IBM Rational Team Concert and Rational Quality Manager.
      License: Commercial
      6. TestComplete
      TestComplete by SmartBear is a powerful commercial testing tool for web, mobile, and desktop testing. TestComplete supports various scripting languages such as JavaScript, VBScript, Python, and C++Script. Like Katalon Studio, testers can perform keyword-driven and data-driven testing with TestComplete. The tool also offers an easy-to-use record and playback feature.
      Like UTF, TestComplete’s GUI object recognition capability can automatically detect and update UI objects which helps reduce the effort to maintain test scripts when the AUT is changed. It also integrates with Jenkins in a CI process.

      7. TestPlant eggPlant
      An image-based automated functional testing tool that enables testers to interact with AUT the same way end users do. TestPlant eggPlant is completely different from traditional testing tools in its approach: modeling user’s point of view rather instead of the test scripts view often seen by testers. This allows testers with less programming skills to learn and apply test automation intuitively. The tool supports various platforms like Web, mobile, and POS systems. It offers lab management and CI integration as well.
      License: Commercial
      8. Tricentis Tosca

The tool features advanced capabilities for GUI recognition, reusable test scripts, and record/playback. Codeless test creation is also a very useful feature that allows new automation testers to learn and apply test automation to their projects.
      The tool supports Selenium integration for web application testing. Testers can distribute the execution of their tests across platforms and browsers using Selenium grid. Ranorex offers a low-pricing model for businesses.
      License: Commercial
      10. Robot framework
      Robot Framework is an open-source automation framework that implements the keyword-driven approach for acceptance testing and acceptance test-driven development (ATDD). Robot Framework provides frameworks for different test automation needs. But its test capability can be further extended by implementing additional test libraries using Python and Java. Selenium WebDriver is a popular external library used in Robot Framework.
      Test engineers can leverage Robot Framework as an automation framework for not only web testing but also for Android and iOS test automation. Robot Framework can be easy to learn for testers who are familiar with keyword-driven testing.

      Selenium WebDriver Architecture

      Selenium WebDriver Architecture

      Selenium WebDriver Architecture: The best way to explain (Deep dive into Selenium BackEnd):

      **Learn How Selenium WebDriver works internally:

      When the automation script is executed, the following steps happen:

      +for each Selenium command, a HTTP request is created and sent to the browser driver
      +the browser driver uses a HTTP server for getting the HTTP requests
      the HTTP server determines the steps needed for implementing the Selenium command
      +the implementation steps are executed on the browser
      +the execution status is sent back to the HTTP server
      +the HTTP server sends the status back to the automation script
