The correctness perspective of quality can be described by different reliability measures or bug-related items.

Consequently, all the testing related topics had this fundamental perspective, that is, to reach high-reliability or low-defect purposes. Nevertheless, there are different other focuses of quality and related attributes, which can be addressed by other kinds of software testing, comprising:

Usability Testing

It estimates the general usability of software systems, especially for those systems where user interfaces are of main importance (for example, web browsers, graphical user interface products and so on).

Performance Testing

It pays main attention to the performance of the software system in realistic operational environments. A lot of such systems are real-time systems, and timely conclusion of computational tasks and general workload handling are of critical importance.

Stress Testing

It is a particular part of performance testing. In this case software system performance under stress is tested. Such kind of software testing is related to capacity testing, where the maximal system capacity is estimated.

The Main Emphasis of Software Testing Activities

There are many other kinds of software testing to conduct testing of some other product quality perspectives:

  • Installation
  • Recoverability
  • Environmental configurations
  • Fault tolerance
  • Portability
  • Interoperability
  • Adaptability
  • Security
