GUI Testing

Jun 5, 2024

GUI testing checks the functionality, usability, and visual side of a specific software application’s graphical user interface (GUI). This testing involves verifying that GUI elements are displayed correctly, responding to expected user inputs, and adhering to design specifications and usability standards. 

There are two core types of GUI testing: analog recording and object-based. Analog recording involves capturing specific mouse clicks, keyboard presses, and other user actions and storing them in a file for playback. The object-based approach lets tools connect programmatically to the application and “see” each user interface component.

Load testing imposes artificial (simulated) demands on Software to test its behavior under set conditions. Special scripts are written to emulate the load and automate load testing. Load testing assesses a system’s capacity to manage escalating levels of expected realistic loads, stemming from transaction requests generated by controlled numbers of simultaneous users or processes.

Load Profile

Jun 19, 2024

A Load Profile represents the behavior and characteristics of users or systems over time in load testing. It includes parameters like the number of concurrent users, transaction rates, response times, and resource utilization patterns. Load profiles are used to simulate workload models that let one check expected user load, traffic patterns, and usage scenarios representation.
