Types of QA testing tools
QA testing tools fall into three general categories:
- Test management tools assist QA teams with writing test cases for software based on project requirements. These tools help teams create, plan, and execute test cases and track bugs against requirements. Test management tools can also automatically capture the results of automated tests.
- Performance testing tools help QA teams evaluate the scalability and reliability of an application. These QA testing tools simulate performance in a distributed environment, testing maximum and minimum response times with different loads.
- Functional testing tools evaluate discrete features or modules of software and report errors to the development or QA team. This category of tools includes tools for API testing, unit testing, multi-browser testing, and multi-device testing.
