Testing of such banking and financial applications becomes crucial in order to evaluate its reliability and proficiency. Growing customer expectations have led to the increased complex financial services that has made testing an important affair.
Due to the involvement of complex functionalities in the banking and financial applications, using one or two software testing techniques is not enough. Such applications require end to end testing methodology involving various software testing techniques to accomplish the following goals.
# To ensure the functional and security aspects of the application
# To ensure data integrity and performance of the application

QA plays a very crucial role in delivering quality software into the market and also helps in organization overall growth.
i) Production testing ensures less time to market: Testing in production is a significant way to check performance of the software with real data. It helps in determining application’s performance in real time and determines how application behaves in weak connections or network failure.
ii) Automation saves manual time: Test cases can be converted into test scripts(automated) during application development. This helps in increasing overall test coverage along with reducing the manual efforts. It also increases the Reusability of test scripts when the OS or device changes.
The goal of performance testing is not to find bugs but to eliminate performance bottlenecks. Performance testing helps in establishing speed, scalability, and stability of the software application. So, designing and executing these tests are critical for ensuring stability of an application. An effective performance testing strategy is essential for highlighting most of the performance issues. It could be associated with the database, network, software, bandwidth, or the hardware.
Why it is critical for enterprises to invest in Performance Testing: 1. It will generate more revenue: The faster the web application is, the more it will generate revenue. For applications such as e-commerce applications have to provide an easy and secure gateway to the customers which results in better transaction and repeated visits on the application. 2. Provide customers with better website speed: A slow and lousy website results in repelling the crowd coming on the site. The automation testing tools enable the teams to check the speed and performance of the website. Users should be able to load the site with basic connectivity and bandwidth that helps in maintaining the interest and keeping them engaged. 3. Improve quality by Resolving defects before getting into market: Performance testing gives customers the information about their application regarding speed, stability and scalability. Performance testing helps in uncovering what needs to be improved before the product goes live. Without performance testing, application is likely to suffer from various issues such as running slow with simultaneous users.
A recent survey has shown that a larger percentage of users abandon Android apps after one time use. Hence, it becomes essential for every business to keep the users engaged and implement various app monetization techniques.
As the name indicates, Selendroid is basically known as Selenium for Android apps. It is a test automation framework that drives off the UI of Android native and hybrid apps and the mobile web app. The QA professionals can use this open source test automation framework to estimate native, hybrid and mobile web apps for Android.
Calabash is an open source tool to write automated acceptance test of mobile apps of mobile apps that support Android native apps. It works efficiently with Ruby, .NET, JAVA, Flex and other programming languages. It tests both the native and hybrid mobile apps and the programmers have APIs that enable native apps to run on touchscreen devices. It supports Cucumber framework.
Compatibility testing is a crucial QA task which guarantees that the software or product that is being tested is compatible, as desired over a broad set of client frameworks and configurations.
The expansion of web browsers, OS (operating systems), and devices has forced associations to guarantee that all their products work as planned over various platforms to avoid costly bugs entering the market or production.
Need for Compatibility Testing
While releasing a software application, you should keep in mind that it must be of high quality and compatible with all operating systems, hardware, software, etc. You can ensure this through mobile compatibility testing. Compatibility can be guaranteed through embracing compatibility testing which checks for errors or bugs before delivering to the client.
Web Security testing is a wide-ranging process which includes multitude of processes that implement the security testing of a web application. It is a methodical process which starts from identifying the entire application and monitored by planning multiple tests.
