Compatibility Testing Checklist

Compatibility Testing Checklist is a tool used to ensure that applications, software, and hardware are compatible with each other. It helps in reducing the risk of incompatibility and ensuring that the final product is of the highest quality. The checklist contains tests that are conducted and analyzed to measure the compatibility between the components, such as browser compatibility tests, operating system compatibility tests, and device compatibility tests. It also involves security testing to make sure that the application is secure. The checklist helps in identifying the existing issues and fixing them before the project is officially released.

  • Identify the hardware/software/operating system configurations to be tested.
  • Determine the standard, acceptable configurations.
  • Create test scenarios, including expected results.
  • Install the application on all target configurations.
  • Record the results of the test scenarios.
  • Identify any compatibility issues.
  • Determine a course of action to resolve any identified issues.
  • Re-test the application on all target configurations.
  • Record the results of the re-test scenarios.
  • Document any remaining compatibility issues.
  • Monitor application performance on all configurations.
