Mainframe functional testing
I am planning to shift to mainframe project
How different is it from GUI projects and what will be the testing techniques/strategies.
Do I need to know technical aspect of mainframe or and overview will help me in proceeding functional testing.
I had done initial analysis on main frame application and found that lots of jobs executions.
Re: Mainframe functional testing
This will depend on the App and the Task you need to fulfill. I've done mainframe work that required me to do ONLY GUI operations and other jobs that required me to manipulate data on the back-end of the system.
Like every testing job, if you know more about the technical aspect of the application it will make it easier to make good tests that go over all the possible issues of the system.
You should try to understand what types of jobs you are going to be seeking and then ask more precise questions that will point you at the right direction.
