The difference between quality assurance (QA) testing and user acceptance testing (UAT) varies across organizations and often within organizations. In general, UAT is usually the final testing process prior to deployment and is performed by a business tester who ultimately signs off on the product.
Ad hoc testing can be performed when the time is very limited and detailed testing is required. Usually adhoc testing is performed after the formal test execution. Ad hoc testing will be effective only if the tester is having thorough knowledge of the System Under Test.
Equivalence Partitioning Technique is also known as Equivalence Class Partitioning or ECP. The idea behind this technique is to divide/partition a set of test conditions into groups or sets that can be considered the same or equivalence .This is used to reduce the total number of test cases to a finite set of testable test cases, still covering maximum requirements.
In software projects, exploratory testing approaches are increasingly used with or without formal structured testing. This course describes how you can apply an exploratory testing approach to quickly find information, to avoid expense or achieve an assigned objective.
Functional testing focuses on testing the interface of the application to ensure that all user requirements for a properly working application are met. Functional testing focuses on testing the interface of the application to ensure that all user requirements for a properly working application are met.
GUI testing is the process of ensuring proper functionality of the graphical user interface (GUI) for a given application and making sure it conforms to its written specifications. In addition to functionality, GUI testing evaluates design elements such as layout, colors, fonts, font sizes, labels, text boxes, text formatting, captions, buttons, lists, icons, links and content.
Integration testing, also known as integration and testing (I&T), is a software development process which program units are combined and tested as groups in multiple ways. In this context, a unit is defined as the smallest testable part of an application.
It’s called load testing, and you can use a tool like Load Testing Tool to get the job done. Load testing is the process of putting simulated demand on software, an application or website in a way that tests or demonstrates it's behavior under various conditions.
Regression testing is the process of testing changes to computer programs to make sure that the older programming still works with the new changes. Regression testing is a normal part of the program development process and, in larger companies, is done by code testing specialists.
Smoke testing is a preliminary test which is used to catch the high-level functional errors of an application. If the tests fail, then further testing of the application stops, and the build is refused for additional testing until the build passes the smoke test.
