Importance of System Testing
Wonder why there is no seperated forum for system testing, which is important in large scale software. i m a new-grad-new-hire in software system testing team, basically installing operating systems, database apps (to-test) and other software in conjunction to it (web servers, apps server...).
Can anyone give an idea what is the key to become a successful tester in system testing? also, what area should i be looking at in order to improve in this area?
Re: Importance of System Testing
Please provide your definition of system testing as it will help give a more focused response.
Regarding "successful tester in system testing"; the basic attributes for success are the same in any endeavor, i.e., soft-skills, knowledge, resourcefulness, ability to provide solutions, organiz(s)ational skills, etc. Are your efforts adding value?
Classic definition of system testing would indicate a scope beyond what you have indicated. A good source for this type of testing in terms of definitions:
Boris Beizer and any of his books dealing with system testing.
Again, with your definition more precise answers can be given.
