Software Testing

Testing can be described as the process of evaluating a system or its component(s) with the purpose to find whether it meets the specified requirements or not. Simply, testing is executing a system with an intention to identify any possible errors, gaps, or missing requirements in contradiction with the current requirements.

We can also describe Testing as the verification and validation of a software item in order to detect the discrepancies between the expected behaviour and the actual behaviour. The main objectives of testing is to find defects/errors/bugs and also to give provide confidence that the system meets requirements
