HAPPY PATH TESTING

POSITIVE TESTING

Happy Path testing is a procedure where the test uses the known input and executes without any exception and produce expected output. The happy path user will understand clearly

  • The domain and functionality of an application
  • familiarity with the UI
  • Operates exactly the way according to the software
  • Remembers everything
  • Understands the prompts and responses made by the product
  • Doesn’t make any mistake
  • Does not get distracted

The test cases are categorised into

  • Happy path
  • Sad path
  • Bad path

A test case which yields in positive result is called as happy path testing. For example entering proper user name and password in the login page. The scenarios which does not take us further and get stuck there itself is called as Sad path. Example entering wrong password and username. A test scenarios which does not fetch any result and makes us lost is called as bad path. Example entering the junk characters in the username.

In any use case analysis scenarios there is only one happy path but there are many additional path scenarios which has valid results. The analysis results in one or more exception paths. The use case and its interactions are commonly used in graphical languages. Focusing on the happy path and creating the proper and required functionality causes bugs in the software production where end users choose from happy path to exception path. Developer doesn’t see the happy path functionality from user’s point of view instead he sees from code point view.

The happy paths can produce gaps or nulls or incorrect values or host of error checking slip into production system because no one has checked these paths.

  28. 1. Happy Path Testing:
    It is a test case in which we give the valid input and the software is executed without any exception/errors and produces the same output as its purpose/expected.
    2. For example, while transferring money:
    -If we enter valid/correct account number and routing number the money will be transferred successfully and is called Happy Path.
    -If we enter Invalid/wrong account number or routing number the amount will not be transferred and is called Sad Path.
    -Where, if we enter the account number of recipient and routing number of sender’s account is known as Bad Path.
    3. In any use case analysis scenarios there is only one happy path but there are many additional path scenarios which has valid results. The analysis may also show exception paths which are the result of invalid condition like sad path and bad path.

    3)Bad path: Where the test scenario does not fetch any result and make us lost is Bad path.

  31. 1. What is happy path testing?
    Happy path testing is testing of an application using valid or known input and applying the correct test steps to reach an expected outcome. It could be synonymous with positive testing where valid data is used to check if an application works. In other words, it is a test which yields a positive result.
    2. Write some examples to differentiate happy path testing from other testing procedures?
    In an online banking application, entering valid username and password results in opening of user account. If incorrect/invalid data is used, an error message will pop up and the expected result-account opening will not happen. If data fields are left blank, account will not open.
    In an application which provides driving directions, correct start and end address will provide correct directions. If an invalid address is entered, there will be an error message. If one of the fields is left blank, the application will reset and directions will not be available.

    Happy path
    Sad path
    Bad path.

  38. Happy Path Testing – is when we test an application with expected or known inputs and get an expected result.
    Examples –
    Happy Path – in email login, we enter the correct characteristics and are able to log in.
    Sad Path – in email login, we enter incorrect inputs and are unable to log in.

  39. What is happy path testing?
    The Test case which gives you a positive result is called happy path testing for example user login with valid username and valid password which takes you through beyond the login page

    Write some examples to differentiate happy path testing from other testing procedures?
    The example of happy path testing user login with valid username and valid password which takes you through beyond the login page

    What are the categories of happy path testing?
    we can do the testing with positive sets of data and record the result of application

  40. Happy path testing is when the result gives an expected output. For example, entering valid date input.

    Happy path testing e.g enter vaild username and password during log in while Sad path e.g enter invaild username and password during log in, this result will not take us any further.

    Happy path
    Sad path
    Bad path

  41. Happy path testing is testing that the software responds to the expected input appropriately. It is different in that it focuses on checking required functionality. The categories are happy path, sad path, and bad path.

  42. In happy path testing, the data inputs are always valid and give expected result. A test case which yields in positive result is called as happy path testing.
    Some examples to differentiate happy path testing from other testing procedures:
    In Happy Path testing, the result is always as expected. For example, in Happy Path testing, entering valid account information to access ATM will open the account. In Alpha Testing, the user is testing the ATM in IT environment. User can enter invalid account information and the account does not open, meaning result is not as expected.
    One more example is online shopping at Walmart.com – At the payment page, entering correct card payment details will result in order processing. This is Happy testing where only valid data is entered to get the desired output. For invalid card details, missing card details or blank data, the order is not processed and error message is displayed. In other types of testing, like negative testing invalid data is entered to see how the system copes.
    The categories of Happy Path Testing are: Happy Path, Sad Path and Bad Path. Example, by entering Correct Username and Password on a bank website, transactions can be seen. This is known as Happy Path.
    If the Username or Password are incorrect, the account does not open. Testing does not go further. This is known as Sad Path.
    If the Username and Password are junk and no results are shown instead takes to different pages. This is known as Bad path where testing path is lost.
