Thread testing is one of the addition/incremental procedures received during System Integration Testing. That is the reason, thread testing is also known as a "thread interaction test."
This approach is used to check the key functional abilities of a particular thread (task). It is generally led at the early phase of integration testing stage.
Sorts/Types of Thread Testing:- Thread based testing are indexed into two classes, mentioned as below -
Testing with Single thread:- A single/solitary thread testing includes one application exchange at once.
Testing with Multi-thread:- A multi-string testing includes a few simultaneously active exchange at once.
Testing Strategy for Thread Test:-
This procedure concentrates on the integration activities as opposed to the full development life-cycle.
The thread or functionality (little program) are integrated and tried incrementally as a subsystem, and after that executed for an entire framework/system.
At the lowest level, it provides the integrator with better information of the scope of what to test.
Thread based testing is a type of session-based testing
Instead of testing programming parts specifically, it required integrator to focus on testing logical execution paths with regards to the whole framework/system.
Tips for Multithread Testing:-
Test your multi-threaded program by executing it more than once with an alternate mix of applications running.
Test your multi-threaded program by having various examples of the project active in the meantime.
Execute your multi-threaded program on various equipment models with different stress levels and workloads.
Just gather errors and disappointments that happened in threads other than the main one.
Challenges in thread Testing:-
Composing unit tests for multi-threaded code is a testing undertaking.
The main problem is that you should be able to program reproducible test for unit test.
Testing standards for multi-thread testing are different as compared to single thread testing. Different variables like memory size, storage limit, timing issues, and so on varies for multi-thread testing when called on different hardware.
1- Strategy to confirm the key practical capacities of a particular task.
2- Testing are organized into two classes-
(a) Single string testing
(b) Multi string testing
