Be Wise, Do PairWise: A Method To Reduce Test Combinations
How many times have you been overwhelmed by the no. of test combinations that you need to consider? I’m sure there would be plenty! From the beginner testers racking their brains to bring every combination to book while they are testing a web application, to an experienced tester testing a server’s features involving hundreds of parameters, we have all been through that, yet, many times, we don’t slow down to do some optimizations that will reduce the number of combinations very significantly.
Pairwise testing is a simple, straight-forward, and an effective way of reducing the number of combinations. In this course, we will go through the details of what pairwise testing is, how it reduces the number of test combinations, a few examples to illustrate its effectiveness, the common mistakes we make while applying pairwise testing and how to avoid them, and the various options of automating pairwise testing to eliminate the manual cumbersome process.
