What Is Software Testing?

Software testing is all about finding errors and resolving them. This involves checking the programming code and how it’s been implemented.

Testing doesn’t always highlight every error in the software but the testing helps to spot failures in any new program.

There are three areas in which software is tested, these are:

  • Verification - ensures that the software is checked for the accuracy of the results it is to produce and that the system is correctly implemented.

  • Error Detection - Whilst testing there should be errors.

  • Validation - checks the accuracy of the system, ensuring the software meets the customers’ requirements.
