Continuing with our exploration of reachability graphs, the graph below shows another very interesting bug in Chrome’s PDF viewer. The beauty of reachability graphs is that it is remarkably easy to follow the abstract states to recreate bugs, and it is impossible to make mistakes in doing so. Go ahead and follow the abstract states […]
Here is another reachability graph efficiently acting as bug report to document a resource-utilization fault found in certain versions of Google Chrome. Reachability graphs are great at documenting any kind of fault, including non-functional defects such as the one for excessive memory consumption below.
Continuing the discussion about reachability graphs, here is another reachability graph efficiently acting as bug report to document a bug found in certain versions of Google Chrome. Even if you have an updated version of Chrome, go ahead and try it out for yourself — chances are the bug is not yet fixed and can […]
In the previous post, I showed you how useful reachability graphs can be in documenting almost infinite steps to recreate a bug. Reachability graphs are really the next step in bug reports, where you not only specify how you exposed a specific bug, step-by-step, but it documents how to recreate the bug in a very […]
A fairly long time ago, I introduced reachability graphs and showed you how to start using them to debug applications. After all, debugging is a form of testing. In this post, I’ll continue exploring reachability graphs for the purposes of exploratory testing. To illustrate their useful power, I will use reachability graphs to test some aspects of an […]
You can’t test everything. So how do you know when you can ignore certain events or states from the SUT during structured exploratory testing? Watch the free screencast here:
Reachability graphs help you structure your testing in a way that makes it faster, more focused and helps you avoid dead-ends. Via certain testing patterns that reachability graphs can make visible, it can also help you break through hard-to-test applications and problems. It can even help you debug! Wanna know more?
