* 11. Reading:

Automated testing is a crucial element of Test-Driven Development (TDD). Test-driven development is characterized by the writing of test cases for each unit (Unit Tests) before the actual code is written. After the code is written, these unit tests are run, and based on the results of these tests, code might be refactored (if necessary) or new tests added and executed. A TDD approach is integral to Agile development processes, to early detection of bugs, and to ensuring full code coverage. 

The following types of testing are most commonly automated:

  • Unit testing — Testing of discrete parts (units) of a software product.
  • Functional testing — Software testing is performed in order to detect actual performance of an application’s functional requirements. Functional testing usually considers accuracy, interoperability, compliance, security and suitability.
  • Regression testing (a type of functional testing) — Checks if an application performs correctly after being modified or integrated with other software.
  • Graphical user interface (GUI) testing — Testing of software interfaces to check if the GUI meets all requirements.
