Usually, When i open server logs with Huge data, as mentioned in Day 38

It was becoming hard to delete the irrelevant data for each line. 

Then, I thought there would be some one who would have similar thought and problem.

Finally, got the answer. There is a new feature in Notepad++

Feature: Column Mode Editing

Using either of the options.

  1. Alt+Mouse Dragging
  2. Alt + Shift + Arrow Keys

Topic: Accessibility Testing - Day 01

Follow Hashtag: #SKC100DaysofLearning

·    As I am taking part of #60DaysofTesting – Accessibility Testing
 Program, started with each topic to explore and learn.

·    This is very new field and I have never participated in my testing career. I am taking help from most of the resources available to learn.

·    But Yes, I read Accessibility testing is very important in United States, especially for Government websites. 

·    If the websites does not follow the guidelines and build a website, they may get sued from law-suit.

Why Learning about Accessibility Testing?
n  Simple Reason, WEB IS FOR EVERYONE.

n  Another, There is one project at work where it needs to meet W3C Accessibility Guidelines. So, I can try out when I get time.

Below are the topics I learnt today...
  • Different diversity of Disabilities
  • Types of People : Normative and Non-Normative (calling instead of Disability People)
  • As due to age, even a normative person can become Non-Normative.

  • Tools Used: WAVE - to scan a web page for accessibility problems.
  • Understanding the problems, what actually they mean.
  • There are few common problems in all projects
  • Example: Not Adding Alternative text for a "Non-Textual Element" such as Images. (alt="disability types")
  • Example: HTML language attribute tag needs to be there for a web page. (Lang = "en")

Use the WAVE Tool and Go to your project/website and see what the problems are discovered.

Daily Learning - Day 38

Date: 13th May 2017

Topic: Notepad++ - Day 01

Follow Hashtag: #SKC100DaysofLearning

A New thing i experimented on 11th May, at work with help of stack overflow.
Not part of actual work task. But tried to enhance my job (adding extra hours to my work).

==== More Details...

There was a new thing, learnt that from Server Logs - we can get to know if any exceptions or errors tracked while performing any action.
So took help and downloaded the server log. 
  1. Download the Server Log
  2. Open the server log in Notepad++
  3. If you see any exceptions - CTRL+F: Find for "Exception" in current document
  4. You may get (7 hits)
  5. Copy the hits to another file.
  6. Remove till FileNotFoundException: DOCUMENTS/
  7. Then you will see only PDF Names

Next, If you have a database access / you can work with dev team where you can query against the table to find the documents to which they are assigned.

But, if there are 100 documents. It is really hard to make 100 documents to make a Query.
Thus, Stackoverflow helped in this context.

You won't be able to do it in a single replacement; you'll have to perform a few steps. Here's how I'd do it:  

  1. Find (in regular expression mode):
    Replace with:
    This adds the quotes:
  2. 'Sheet2.pdf'
  3. Find (in extended mode):
    Replace with (with a space after the comma, not shown):
    This converts the lines into a comma-separated list:
  4. 'Sheet1.pdf', 'Sheet2.pdf', 'Sheet3.pdf', 'Sheet4.pdf', 'Sheet5.pdf', 'Sheet6.pdf', 'Sheet7.pdf'
  5. Adding braces manually for both ends and Doing a query can give you the results to which documents are assigned.
  6. ('Sheet1.pdf', 'Sheet2.pdf', 'Sheet3.pdf', 'Sheet4.pdf', 'Sheet5.pdf', 'Sheet6.pdf', 'Sheet7.pdf')
