Siebel provides various ways to integrate through EAI (Enterprise Application Integration) like EIM, Prebuilt connectors, various queues like MSMQ, JMS, WebSphere MQ. Also Web service based integration using SOAP. Siebel also supports RESTful based integration using Fusion Middleware. One important feature of Siebel EAI is EAI Java Business Service which can be used to invoke external Java class to perform various operations. In this article we will see how we can use various EAI Business services to communicate with JSON API of external application. We will have an...

Bug / Defect Priority vs Severity Matrix

In Software Testing, deciding how important the defect is and how soon the defect should be fixed is as important as finding a defect! This depends on how you actually place the defect into Priority-Severity matrix. I have come across a lot many test engineers, who get confused between priority and severity of a defect. Definition is important but understanding is even more important. Definitly customer (guidelines) plays a major role in the decision but I’d like to convey in terms of the general scenario. I’d like to add some easy words to clarify the confusion (probably forever). Defect Priority:...

QA-Testing Definitions-Interview Questions: III (T – Z): Race Condition: A cause of concurrency problems. Multiple accesses to a shared resource, at least one of which is a write, with no mechanism used by either to moderate simultaneous access. Ramp Testing: Continuously raising an input signal until the system breaks down. Recovery Testing: Confirms that the program recovers from expected or unexpected events without loss of data or functionality. Events can include shortage of disk space, unexpected loss of communication, or power out conditions. Regression Testing: Retesting a previously tested program following modification to ensure that faults have not been introduced...

QA-Testing Definitions-Interview Questions: II (F – S): Data Dictionary: A database that contains definitions of all data items defined during analysis. Data Flow Diagram: A modeling notation that represents a functional decomposition of a system. Data Driven Testing: Testing in which the action of a test case is parameterized by externally defined data values, maintained as a file or spreadsheet. A common technique in Automated Testing. Debugging: The process of finding and removing the causes of software failures. Defect: Nonconformance to requirements or functional / program specification Dependency Testing: Examines an application’s requirements for pre-existing software, initial states and configuration...
