    Hi Guys,

    I had worked in software testing for about 5-6 years in the past and have been out of the loop for about 8 years, what tools can you recommend for me to study in order to get back working in this field?

    Thanks a lot


    Depending on your technical domain/platforms:
    – Sellinium for automation
    – AppLabs to render virtual browsers
    – Continous integration, like jenkins

    Smartbear for APIs and performance

    SOASTA for cloud


    Hi @mark-kiernan,

    As Jesper says, it depends on the platforms and domains.
    – for testing web applications: Selenium (it supports code written in various languages like Java, C#, Ruby etc.)
    – for testing desktop applications: HP UFT (formerly QTP) or Ranorex. Both are paid tools and you need a license to use them.
    – for API testing: Smartbear (SoapUI, TestComplete etc.) or JMeter.
    – for Continuous Integration: Hudson or Jenkins.

    Additionally, there are tools like JIRA and TFS (Team Foundation Server) for other testing related activities including bug tracking and project management.
