I work in a software company as a Java Developer. I am aware that a Java Developer/Developer is required to carry out Unit Testing. What are other kinds that a Developer is expected to carry out?

Also if a Scrum methadology is being used, what is expected to be used?

I am only looking for names such as Unit Testing for both:

Developer
Scrum methadology.

It depends on the company. Functional testing and performance testing are common. Basically, you need to make sure your code works and integrates into the larger picture. Same deal with Scrum. You need to produce working code and regression tests.

Officially, Scrum is a process framework, not a methodology. There is actually nothing in Scrum that specifically calls out how testing should be done, however, technical practices like Test-Driven Development (TDD) and Continuous Integration are often adopted by Scrum teams. Many teams, agile or not, also adopt Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) and Acceptance Test-Driven Development (ATDD). There are many other different kinds of testing that teams will also consider doing such as Exploratory Testing, Load Testing, Security/Vulnerability Testing, Longevity Testing, to name a few more.

Hi

Thanks for your reply. This really helped.

1 more thing. You mentioned:

Basically, you need to make sure your code works and integrates into the larger picture.

What is this called? Integration testing?

Is a Java Developer/Developer also required to do this?

Yes, a responsible developer is responsible for doing as much integration testing as he/she can.
