Course Overview

Manual Testing is a type of Software Testing where Testers manually test the software application. Manual Testing is the most primitive of all testing types and helps find bugs in the software system. JIRA is an issue management tool and it helps to facilitate the testing process and to manage various types of issues in the software development process. Manual Testing does not require knowledge of any testing tool.

Testing with SQL is also known as Database Testing. The data entered in the front end will be stored in the back-end database. The database may be Oracle, PostgreSQL, etc. The data will be organized in the tables as a record, and it is used to support the content of the page. Database or backend testing is important because if it is not done it has some serious complications like deadlock, data corruption, data loss, etc.

Application Programming Interface (API) enables communication and data exchange between two separate software systems an example is a front end and the backend database. API Testing is a software testing type that validates APIs. The purpose of API Testing is to check the functionality, reliability, performance, and security of the programming interfaces.

Automation Testing means using an automation tool to test the software application. On the contrary, Manual Testing is performed by a human sitting in front of a computer carefully executing the test steps. Selenium is an open-source automation tool that is currently most used all over the world and it supports various programming languages such as Java, Python, C#, Ruby, etc.
