Identify functions that the software is expected to perform
Functional Testing is performed to see that the application is performing the same way as expected. When Functional Testing is done on a software unit, then it basically compares the results with the business requirements. The testing is mainly done by feeding inputs and then analyzing the output result. It focuses mostly on the functionality of a small unit of the whole system and Non-Functional testing covers the quality attributes of the system.
Salient Features of adaps Functional Testing Framework
- Identify the functions that software has to perform
- Creating the input feed depending on the functions that software will perform
- Determine the output based on the function specifications
- Test case execution
- Comparing the expected and the actual output
- Analyze that the application is working as specified by the customer
Why Functional Testing Tests?
Functional Testing involves testing of each function of the application and checks that it is working the way it needs to work. It consists of monitoring the user interface, database, security, client/server interface and every other thing involved in the application. The testing can be automatic as well as manual.
- It helps to evaluate the performance of the application before it reaches the real world
- Aids in developing a functionally perfect application
- It helps to eliminate functional disasters like not meeting the end-user expectations
- It prevents serious consequences that may follow due to functional shortcomings
- The test cases used for functionality testing are close to real-time environment as they are designed keeping in mind the end users
Services We Provide In Functional Testing
During the functional tests, the Black Box Testing technique is used in which the tester does not know the internal logic of the system being tested.
Functional tests are usually performed during the System Tests and Acceptance Tests levels.
