What is User Acceptance Testing (UAT)?
UAT is final testing performed when functional, system and regression testing is completed. The main purpose of UAT is to validate the software against the business requirements. This validation is carried out by end users who are familiar with the business requirements. UAT, alpha and beta testing are different types of acceptance testing.
As user acceptance testing is the last testing carried out before the software goes live, obviously this is the last chance for the customer to test the software and measure if it’s fit for the purpose.

Purpose of the Article
Black box testers don’t care about unit testing. Their main goal is to validate the application against the requirements without going into the implementation details. But as a curiosity or out of the box thinking, have you ever wondered how developers test their own code? What method they use to test before releasing code for testing? How dev-testing is important in agile process? The answer to all this is unit testing. I want to educate you on the importance of unit testing so that development and testing teams can work more collaboratively to design, test and release a excellent application.
Who knows in the future some of you may even switch to white box testing and use these code validation and improvement techniques!
What is Unit Testing?
Unit testing is not a new concept. It’s been there since the early days of the programming. Usually developers and sometime white box testers write unit Continue reading →

What is Alpha Testing?
This is a form of internal acceptance testing performed mainly by in-house software QA and testing teams. Alpha testing is the last testing done by test teams at development site after the acceptance testing and before releasing the software for beta test. Alpha testing can also be done by potential users or Continue reading →

Q. What is difference between Performance Testing, Load Testing and Stress Testing?
1) Performance Testing:
Performance testing is the testing, which is performed, to ascertain how the components of a system are performing, given a particular situation. Resource usage, scalability and reliability of the product are also validated under this testing. This testing is the subset of performance engineering, which is focused on addressing performance issues in the design and architecture of software product.
Performance Testing Goal:
The primary goal of performance testing includes establishing the benchmark behaviour of the Continue reading →
