Continuous testing is the practice of testing software as frequently as possible (e.g., multiple times per day) and as early as possible in the development lifecycle. With more frequent updates and faster bug fixes, your product can be more responsive to market changes and the needs of customers.

There are dozens of software testing tools available in 2022 — and they’re not as similar as they may seem on the surface. To choose the right tool for your team, you need to carefully consider the technical skillset of your team and the complexity of the application you’re testing. In this article, we discuss four questions to consider in order to understand the differences between tools.

Automated software testing tools are used to automate interactions with software so tests can be run without a human having to perform each action. This lets one person run multiple tests at once and eliminates most of the human error associated with manual testing. Although there are many types of software testing, functional testing is the most common and the one most teams start with. That’s why we’ll be focusing on functional testing in this article.

In software testing, regression tests are a series of tests run right before releasing a new feature or update to make sure the critical functionalities of your software are still working. Regression testing is done to make sure a new build didn’t introduce bugs into other, existing features of your software.

Smoke testing is the practice of running a small set of tests to ensure the basic functionalities of an application or website are working before moving on to other, more comprehensive types of software testing. For smoke testing to be the most effective, it needs to be completed very quickly so that developers can get fast feedback about the stability of the new build.

QA testing tools include everything from performance testing tools to workflow management tools. If you’re just getting started with software quality assurance, it can be difficult to know what tools you need (and how to tell them apart). Functional testing is the foundation of most software quality assurance efforts. That’s why we think the right automated functional testing tool is the most important part of your QA toolbox.

If you use a framework like Electron to develop a desktop version of your web application, you may have run into a common problem when testing your application: So while you can test most of the critical functions of your app in the web version, there are some critical test cases for the desktop version that you simply can’t automate (such as setting up desktop notifications or verifying the app can be downloaded and installed).

Automated software tests are much cheaper to execute, take less time to run, and are less susceptible to human error than manual testing. That’s why most software companies eventually build an automated test suite. There are many things to consider when first getting started with automated testing, but arguably the most important is choosing the right tool.

Front-end testing helps ensure that the core functionalities of a web or desktop application work properly and appear correctly to the end-user. By automating front-end testing, teams can release new features and updates faster and with fewer bugs. However, most of the automated testing tools that are used for front-end testing don’t actually interact with the front end of their application.

Rainforest QA is changing the way QA is done in an era of continuous delivery. Our on-demand QA solution improves the customer experience by enabling development teams to discover significantly more problems before code hits production. Hundreds of companies including Adobe, Oracle and Solarwinds use Rainforest to automate their QA testing process and easily integrate it with their development workflow via a simple API.

No Code Automated Testing:

  • Powering Collaboration: Empower everyone on your team with no-code automation testing. Rainforest Automation rapidly scales coverage and drastically decreases software testing time.
  • Best of both worlds: A new way to write and execute tests combining the best of human and machine based testing. Have both the flexibility of large test coverage and the ability to fall back to human testers when needed.
  • Custom Workflows: Unite automation and manual testing within a single suite and customize your workflow: run against humans for major production releases, run every branch merge against robots.
