The Tester’s Vocabulary: Zool

Today’s term: a zool.

Zool: a row in a database, added via an INSERT command, or rendered in the presentation layer (client application or Web interface) that is expected to contain information, but because of defective behavior of the software does not.

In context:  “There is no data, only Zool.”‘

It’s best said in a demonic voice, but that’s sort of redundant, since any QA communication is best spoken hellishly.

A sample of this vocabulary word below the fold, sort of.
Yeah, I made it up, and yeah, I’m recycling from my other blog, but you readers deserve fresh content most days. Today you get content.
