The Future of Performance Testing

Alex Podelko

Following up my post Are Times still Good for Load Testing? , First, I’d like to elaborate on “It may be less need for simple load testing due to increased scale and sophistication of systems” I meant that the traditional way – testing the system before deploying in production using production-type workload – is not the only way anymore. That dictates changes needed in performance testing (and, eventually, performance testing tools).

Functional Testing vs. Non-Functional Testing


This indicates the importance of functional testing as well as non-functional testing to deliver a user-friendly app. So let’s understand what is functional testing. What is Functional Testing? Then execute the test cases and compare the actual data to the expected result.

Regression Testing: Tools and Techniques


Regression Testing, by its definition, is a type of software testing to confirm that a recent program or code change has not adversely affected existing features. In order to achieve that, the existing test cases are executed selectively or sometimes completely.

The Biggest Performance Testing Obstacles


Performance testing is a crucial part of the development process, but it is also one of the most overlooked steps in a development cycle. Not many developers are interested in doing rigorous testing on their codes to see how they perform under heavy load. Even worse, not all decision-makers and stakeholders realize the importance of performance testing. The fact that performance testing can be incredibly challenging makes the task more arduous for many teams.
