Nonfunctional testing involves testing software from the requirements which are
nonfunctional in nature but important such as performance, security, user interface, etc.
It is mostly used to identify any bottlenecks or performance issues rather than finding
bugs in software. There are different causes that contribute in lowering the
performance of software:
- Network delay
- Client-side processing
- Database transaction processing
- Load balancing between servers
- Data rendering
It is a process of testing the behavior of a software by applying maximum load in terms of software accessing and manipulating large input data.
The aim of stress testing is to test the software by applying the load to the system and taking over the resources used by the software to identify the breaking point.
This testing technique is used to evaluate the user-friendliness of an application in an attempt to limit and/or reduce the # of issues experienced by users while navigating within the application.
To examine the documentation artifacts, prepared before and during the software development and testing phase such as various requirements, specifications, plans, strategies and other related and tangible elements.
This testing is necessary to evaluate the compatibility of a software product with its expected working environment including multiple platforms, OS, devices, software and hardware to execute its intended functionalities properly without any issues.
While this is not an exhaustive list of the types of testing that can be performed, it is the main types that are generally required prior to deployment of a software application.

Software testing is the process of evaluating a system or its component(s) with the intent on finding whether it satisfies a set of specified requirements or not. In simple words, software testing is executing a system to identify any gaps, errors, or missing requirements in contrary to the actual requirements.
Regardless of which phase your software project is in, adding software testing resources can be an invaluable step in helping to reduce the risks of defective software that fails to meet the needs of those who use and rely on the software.
Testability can immediately make an impact by assessing the development process and tailoring a software testing approach based on your current situation and the needs of the project. We’ve been software testing for over 20 years and know how to make an immediate impact!
So, what kind of software testing do we do?
Black Box Testing
The technique of testing without having any knowledge of the interior workings of the application is called black-box testing.
White Box Testing
White-box testing is the detailed investigation of internal logic and structure of the code.
Integration testing is defined as the testing of combined parts of an application to
determine if they function correctly.
Functional “System” Testing
The application is tested by providing input and then the results are examined that need to conform to the functionality it was intended for. Functional testing of software is conducted on a complete, integrated system to evaluate the system’s compliance with its specified requirements.
Whenever a change in a software application is made, it is quite possible that other areas within the application have been affected by this change. Regression testing is performed to verify that a fixed bug or new feature hasn’t adversely affected functionality or business rules that were not changed.
User Acceptance Testing (UAT)
This is arguably the most important type of testing, as it is conducted by a select group of end users (generally subject matter experts) along with test team personnel. UAT will gauge whether the application meets the intended specifications and satisfies the client’s business requirements. The user acceptance team will execute a set of prewritten scenarios and test cases that will be used to test and ultimately accept the changes to the application.
