Introduction to Software Testing

Hey All,

You might be guessing what is software testing? , why we do software testing? , is it necessary? and many more. There are so many questions arising.

Thus, i am attaching few interesting definitions of software testing, which may resolve your queries.

"Software Testing is process of exercising software with the intent of ensuring that the software system meets its requirements and user expectations and doesn't fail in an unacceptable manner. "

“Testing is the process of executing a program with the intent of finding errors.”

"The process of exercising software to verify that it satisfies specified requirements and to detect errors."

"The process of analyzing a software item to detect the differences between existing and required conditions (that is, bugs), and to evaluate the features of the software item (Ref. IEEE Std 829)."
