do I need a testing tool?
I am new to testing, I was a programmer before so I kind of know what to test and how. I am the only person in my company who is going to be doing the testing and I have to start testing quickly. I've tested the software a bit so far but manually and simple things and I am sure its going to take a long time to test everything manually.
I don't know what kind of testing tool I need? Could you help me on this???
Re: do I need a testing tool?
Its impossible to advise you given that much information. Your company really should have hired someone for 6 months to come in and set up the testing procedures for you. Its difficult to jump into testing blindly with no help on-hand. Unless you have a lot of the same testing that has to be done over and over each week, I wouldn't worry about any tools at this point and concentrate on developing and documenting a rigid Testing procedure as if you were in charge of a department. An automation or performance tool would come a bit later once you're more organized and structured. That's the ideal case, but given real-world worst-case I can assume that you've been cast into this job with a short time until release. Read up in the Automation and Performanc Testing forums and try to evaluate if this is something you need. Especially read the FAQs regarding when and how to automate.
