À propos du cours

After completing this course, you will have an understanding of the fundamental principles and processes of software testing. You will have actively created test cases and run them using an automated testing tool. You will being writing and recognizing good test cases, including input data and expected outcomes. After completing this course, you will be able to… - Describe the difference between verification and validation. - Explain the goal of testing. - Use appropriate test terminology in communication; specifically: test fixture, logical test case, concrete test case, test script, test oracle, and fault. - Describe the motivations for white and black box testing. - Compare and contrast test-first and test-last development techniques. - Measure test adequacy using statement and branch coverage. - Reason about the causes and acceptability of and poor coverage - Assess the fault-finding effectiveness of a functional test suite using mutation testing. - Critique black-box and white-box testing, describing the benefits and use of each within the greater development effort. - Distinguish among the expected-value (true), heuristic, consistency (as used in A/B regression), and probability test oracles and select the one best-suited to the testing objective. - Craft unit and integration test cases to detect defects within code and automate these tests using JUnit. To achieve this, students will employ test doubles to support their tests, including stubs (for state verification) and mocks (for behavioral verification) ( This course is primarily aimed at those learners interested in any of the following roles: Software Engineer, Software Engineer in Test, Test Automation Engineer, DevOps Engineer, Software Developer, Programmer, Computer Enthusiast. We expect that you should have an understanding of the Java programming language (or any similar object-oriented language and the ability to pick up Java syntax quickly) and some knowledge of the Software Development Lifecycle....

First, this course is not for beginners you must have good programming background (Java) and good English language. Second, This course is Very Good and important for all software fields. and Teachers are great ! make this topic easy . I removed 1 stars because they must have added move explanation for Assignment Tasks :)

The course is great, a lot of general information and examples to work with. The test reviews are automated so little to none feedback is received to actually improve your grade.

This course has the potential to be a 5 star one but unfortunately due to few issues, it just isnt. The instructors need to take more initiatives to better the content.

1. Literally zero modeation of content in discussion groups. Assignment solutions are downright being shared amongst everyone freely. A lot of students are just copy pasting assignment solutions provided by others and passing the course. This is mainly happening due to poor explanation, outdated course content (Prime example being forced to use outdated Java 8 for building assignment projects when the present running version is Java 18) and no proper help to students regarding problems they are facing.

2. Please provide the eclipse project material that is being used in the training videos. This will help students get more hands on experience to experiment and hence learn more, leading to much better idea in solving the final assignmants.

3. Make the assignment grader more robust and flexible in terms of accepting solutions from different IDEs and not being limited to Eclipse exclusively.

Spent 3 hours uploading different versions. It always show same error (/grader/UnitTestingGrader/correct/build/test-results/test/TEST-DemoTest.xml (No such file or directory). Purpose of this course is to learn software testing not to loosing time uploading files.

Great course! It was difficult to accomplish assignments with no Java programming experience, but I did it, with help of my programming basics knowledge. I liked much Coursera platform, and the way the instructors explaining course content.
