How not to Enter New Bugs During Testing

How not to Enter New Bugs During Testing

Any tester knows that planning software product testing is not an easy task, and due to the improperly designed plan of the quality ensuring procedures the software product often remains with the unpatched bugs.

Of course, planning of the project is a very important factor in a mobile testing, web application testing and desktop testing, but there are many other reasons that can trigger new bugs, besides the errors already existing in an application.

What Causes the Emergence of New Bugs in the System Under Test?

  1. Development tools – visual tools, compilers, tools, scripting tools, class libraries, etc. are often the cause of new errors. Therefore, a testing team should always use the new software tools and their modern versions and make sure that they are compatible with the tested project.
  2. Badly documented code – performing manual testing or automated testing, a tester can get lost in the overly confusing or poorly documented code. In addition to the fact that attempts to figure out the situation take a very long time of the team, this phenomenon can cause not only missing the existing bugs in the system, but also the emergence of new ones.
  3. Lack of qualified testers – if the project is complex and requires special knowledge and skills, and a testing company cannot provide such qualified professionals in the desired area, the newcomers are unlikely able to help the project in becoming successful. It often happens that novices may commit follies.
  4. Obsolete automation scripts – if automators already have the prepared scripts that were used in similar projects or during the previous versions of the current project before, but they do not update them, then there exists a great possibility of entering the additional bugs to the system.
