Software Testing

Software testing is an important part of software development and implementation. Testing involves validation and verification of a software product in order to understand the benefits and risk of implementation of any new software in a business. The general method of testing involves executing the various functions of the software application or program with an intention of finding any bugs.

Testing can be carried out in various different points of the development phase, but generally it is done after the coding process is completed once the requirements are specified. It allows assessment of software product to conclude whether the product will be acceptable to its end users.

Functional testing is done to verify whether the codes are carrying out their functions properly by testing all the features of the program where as nonfunctional testing checks the other necessary parameters of the program and its compatibility.  Testing detects possible defects and failure due to programmer’s error or other compatibility issues and by finding faults in the early stages. It will be easier and cheaper to fix errors at an earlier stage when compared to modifications post release stage. Static testing is done by reviewing the software as walkthroughs and inspections and later on subjected to dynamic testing using test cases and noting the results.
