What is Regression testing?

Difference between smoke testing and regression testing:

  1. Developers and testers are responsible to perform this testing method
  2. Documentation is given due importance and is carried out effectively
  3. It is less expensive and can be managed under the budget allotted for software testing
  4. Only non-functional verification is carried out
  5. It is shallow/non-exhaustive by nature
  6. It is a surface level testing, wherein the stability of the system is verified
  7. This testing method is always followed by regression testing
  8. Less amount of time and manpower is required to perform this testing method
  9. It is performed on the software that has been newly developed
  1. The QA team is responsible to perform this testing method
  2. Documentation does not happen
  3. It is an expensive testing method and hence needs to be decided thoughtfully
  4. Both functional and non-functional verification is carried out
  5. It is in-depth by nature
  6. It is a deep level testing, wherein the rationality of the system is verified
  7. This testing method is performed throughout the software testing phase
  8. More amount of time is required to perform this testing method
  9. It is performed to make sure whether the changes made to the code do not alter or modify the existing features/functionalities of the application
