Test types are test categories designed to verify behavior, or expose an error.
Software development test types include:
Unit testing is a method by which individual units of source code are tested to determine if they are fit for use. A unit is the smallest testable part of an application. Unit tests are created by programmers or occasionally by white box testers during the development process.
- It’s a procedure used to verify that a particular module of source code is working properly.
- Unit test cases are written for all functions and methods so that whenever a change causes a regression, it can be quickly identified and fixed.
- Tests typically employ white-box methods which requires knowledge of inner design and logic.
- This type of testing is mostly done by the developers in a development environment and not by end-users.
