Please help me to start testing with MAC...
Hi all.. I am having 1.5 Years of testing experience in both desktop and web applications in windows. But now I am assigned to test an application in MAC OS and I am almost new to it. Can anyone help me by giving some guidelines to start with Mac os..? What all are the things to be considered in testing with MAC.? Any help material resources and guidelines are highly appreciated.
Re: Please help me to start testing with MAC...
What will you be testing? Fundamentally a Mac application isn't all that different from a Windows application, although there are some techniques that may be a little bit more common on the Mac, such as the use of drag and drop. Will you be testing a cross-platform app? Do you need to test interactions between the application and other software on the Mac?
Of course, to work with anything on the Mac you'll want to be familiar with getting around in that environment, which may take some adjustment: using the Command key (with the Apple logo on it) rather than the Control key for shortcuts; understanding the single menu bar at the top of the screen; navigating in the Finder; and so forth. Apple has some resources to help you figure this stuff out here: http://www.apple.com/support/switch101/. And you may find other similar information if you search.
But for testing, I think you'll basically want to test the same kinds of things in a Mac app that you would in a Windows or Linux app.
