Test Suite


  • Test suites allow for running a collection of tests

  • The tests are defined in XML format

  • We can use test suites to create test collection:

    • Sanity tests: a basic test to quickly evaluate whether the application is functional

    • Smoke tests: is performed after a software build to ascertain that the critical functionalities of the program are working fine. It is executed "before" any detailed functional or regression tests are executed on the software build

    • Regression tests: testing all existing features. Regression testing is a type of software testing which verifies that software which was previously developed and tested still performs correctly after it was changed or interfaced with other software
