  • Hi,

    There are so many testing tools are available in the market, according to our requirements we can select the tool... And the senarios you said can be done by WinRunner.

    But my opinion is, manual testing is better than automation, tool just automate the human ideas..

     

    thanks & regards

  • Software won't replace knowledge. While test tools or programs can probably domost of what you're looking for, my suggestion is to start testing manually, and as you do it, determine which pieces of your testing would be better done by a software program.

     

    This forum is better suited to answering specific questions about testing. For example, given certain types of input fields, how would you do boundary testing; or what are some common methods of testing for errors?

     

    One place to start would be to examine the areas of the program that take user input and determine what the valid input for those areas are, and verify that the proper output is provided. Then test invalid input and make sure the program handles the error gracefully. Once you get a feel for this simple testing, you can start to apply some other techniques.
