See and also recommended books Reference Testing REGRESSION TESTING Reliability Testing (same as Soak testing) Repetion Testing Robust Test SANITY TEST - A Sniff Test SDLC - systems development life cycle SMOKE TEST (Guidelines) Smoke Testing is a very light testing, usually on areas that have changed since the code/product was last examined, or after the first "assembly". If it passes the Smoke Test, it is worth being tested further. SNIFF TEST - a Reality Test to determine if the product/idea/venture works sufficently well to merit further testing. More info Soak testing - testing a system with a significant load extended over a significant period of time, to discover how the system behaves under sustained use.
