Software Testing Interview Questions – Part 17
121. What is a Component?
A minimal software item for which a separate specification is available.
122. What is Load Testing?
Testing conducted to evaluate the compliance of a system or component with specified performance requirements. Often this is performed using an automated test tool to simulate large number of users.
123. What is Conformance Testing?
The process of testing that an implementation conforms to the specification on which it is based. Usually applied to testing conformance to a formal standard.
124. What is Installation Testing?
Confirms that the application under test recovers from expected or unexpected events without loss of data or functionality. Events can include shortage of disk space, unexpected loss of communication, or power out conditions.
125. What is Coding?
The generation of source code.
126. What is Emulator?
A device, computer program, or system that accepts the same inputs and produces the same outputs as a given system.
127. Explain Automated Software Quality or ASQ.
The use of software tools, such as automated testing tools, to improve software quality.
128. What is End-to-End testing?
Testing a complete application environment in a situation that mimics real-world use, such as interacting with a database, using network communications, or interacting with other hardware, applications, or systems if appropriate.
129. Explain Equivalence Partitioning.
A test case design technique for a component in which test cases are designed to execute representatives from equivalence classes.
130. What is Debugging?
The process of finding and removing the causes of software failures.
