Software Design Attributes as Bugs
by Nataliia Vasylyna | November 11, 2013 10:00 am
There are many various aspects and details that must be considered and evaluated during web site testing, desktop testing or mobile application testing.
Some of the issues may seem to be of low importance at a casual glance, but disregarding of them may result in the application failure in production. Defects of an application design are among such issues.
It may be difficult for a junior tester to perform usability testing. They can be perplexed deciding what issues should be reported as software bugs or enhancements.
A software testing company recommends junior testers to document any questionable things. After some practice they will learn to distinguish defects appropriately.
Usually One Should Document the Next Software Design Attributes as Defects:
- design of the tested software product is strange and it is hard to understand how to use the software product;
- design of the application is so gaudy, that it is hard to understand its content;
- objects of the software are too little or there are too many them on the screen that it is difficult to make sense of them;
- application objects are thrown promiscuously together and indiscriminate;
- software design looks ok only under certain lights.
Performing software testing, you should keep in mind that software design plays significant role in users’ acceptance of software.
