I've heard of Concurrency testing. But what the heck is "Currency Testing"? Someone popped this question to me and says it's another form of testing.
I am curious to know if something like this exists?
The IT business is full of terms that are not at all commonly used. Therefore, an answer that may apply in one context may be off-base elsewhere.
Currency testing as I know it relates to software development where you have multiple versions that are in progress, that are sometimes rolled back to address production problems, that are possibly affected by multiple concurrent projects, and so on. From time to time you need to confirm that a specific state version is completely up-to-date with all outstanding bug fixes and functionality announcements to avoid embarrassment. This is in many cases similar to a massive regression test, done as a project unto itself, to establish a new reference base for a major code release.
but something we need to test regarding currency is output formatting. Different countries use "." and "," separations differently and we like to be sure the correct currency symbol goes in front or at the back (depending on currency). I would not think anyone would regard that as another form of testing, but if this is a test question then who knows what some of these institutes come up with.
Currency Testing is to check whether the Symbol exists for the amount or not.
ex: $4000 ,Rs.200 etc.suppose,
The expected Result will be
Here we are checking whether the testing would be that '$' symbol is present before the value or not.
This was an issue raised earlier by our client.I don't know whether it is related to a kind of testing,may be Currency Testing
currency testing can also be based on the F/X calculation tables or on the spread of rates on future positions in currency trades. Or even on simple conversions between currencies are calculated and displayed correctly. There is little context in the original post so there are a number of possibilities many not covered here...may be an interview question?
