Change data capture (CDC) products capture and deliver only the changes made to enterprise data sources, enabling efficient and real-time data integration, and eliminating the need for batch processing windows.
NoSQL is a new breed of database management systems that fundamentally differ from relational database systems. These databases do not require tables with a fixed set of columns, avoid JOINs and typically support horizontal scaling. They are also referred to as structured storage.
Here is the list of top open source “nosql” databases
Gone are those days when people browse internet only in IE or NetScape. With lots of browsers available for end users, testing any new website in multiple browsers is becoming critical. Rather than installing all the browsers, Cross-browser testing tools help testing website in most of the browsers. Cross-browser is the ability for a website, web application, HTML construct or client-side script to support all the web browsers.
Here, are the list of the best cross browser testing tools:
The process of documenting, executing and tracking test cases and tests is termed as Test Management. A tool for Test Management enables testers and QA teams to manage manual or automated tests designed previously by testers or stakeholders.
The top open source test management tools are as follows.
Unit testing is an approach which tests individual units of source code and verifies if it is fit for purpose. A unit is the smallest testable part of an application. Unit testing allows the programmer to modify and maintain existing code and still ensure sure that the module works correctly and meets the expected functional and nonfunctional requirements. It also helps to reduce the uncertainty in the units themselves and is particularly useful in a bottom-up testing style approach.
Below is the list of unit testing tools for java:
Website loading time is one of the critical non-functional requirement that would directly impact the popularity and usage of a particular website. A slow website, in spite of having the best available content, would drive users away from it into using other alternatives. Well if that is not all all of the search engines consider page speed as one of the criteria as well for search engine rankings. So should you wish to check the speed of your website and in some cases also identify the issues slowing down your website, then here is a list of page speed testing tools that would help identify your website speed and identify relevant issues to make it perform better.
Performance testing is defined as the technical investigation done to determine or validate the speed, scalability, and/or stability characteristics of the product under test. Performance-related activities, such as testing and tuning, are concerned with achieving response times, throughput, and resource-utilization levels that meet the performance objectives for the application under test.
Following is the list of few open source tools which can be used for performance testing:
Test automation is a process of writing a computer program to do testing that would otherwise need to be done manually. Once tests have been automated, they can be run quickly and repeatedly. This is often the most cost effective method for software products that have a long maintenance life, because even minor patches over the lifetime of the application can potentially cause working functionality (at an earlier point in time) to break.
Collaboration tools were being used even before computers existed. It was something that helped people collaborate. A piece of paper, for example, could have been described as a collaboration tool. With the evolution of technology, the term collaboration tool is now used to mean collaborative software. It is something that assists in solving a predefined task together in a group more easily. Collaboration means, in this context, working together to fulfill a shared, collective, bounded goal. In this article lets see 10 of best web based scollaboration software that we liked.
Business intelligence (BI) is a decision support tool used to capture, report, and analyze a subset of organizational data without affecting operational systems. The software provides essential business visibility to help clients' businesses grow by giving them the information they need about product, sales, and customer behaviour. It allows clients to look at their businesses in different ways, and helps them to understand the core issues so they can take action to improve performance.
