The main purpose of Software testing, I think is not to remove the bug but to find the bug. Also ensuring the application works correctly as per the requirements and thereby increasing the quality of the product and increasing the confidence in the product.

The main purpose of the software testing is to give the proper quality product and to satisfies the customer requirements

Testing involves operation of a system under controlled conditions and evaluating the results. The control conditions should include both normal and abnormal conditions. Testing is basically to determine if the things happen when they should not be happen and things don?t happen when they should be. It is oriented to ?DETECTION?.

The purpose of the software testing is to know whether the application is according to the client's requirement. Even the developer develop the application according to the client there will be so many critical defects due to some miss understandings and not having proper communication with the client. Software testing is a must to avoid such type of defects and get the application according to the client's requirement.

Software testing is performed to verify that the completed software package functions according to the expectations defined by the requirements/specifications. The overall objective to not to find every software bug that exists, but to uncover situations that could negatively impact the customer, usability, and/or maintainability.

Software testing is an investigation conducted to provide stakeholders with information about the quality of the product or service under test - wikipedia definition.

Testing is done with two main objectives to a) ensure the product is working as per the implied and explicit requirements. Else b) find the bug and report to the developer. In addition testing is also done to check the software under abnormal conditions.

Once the bugs are fixed, tester has to again ensure that bug is fixed, in addition ensure it is not impacting other modules/features by testing  :-)

Testing is done in three stages Functionality, Integration and System.

Functionality - Check functionality of every feature (is could be as simple as text box) with all possible valid and invalid data

Integration - Once all the features are testing now the integration of the features with the modules is testing (like compose mail and send, it should be in sent mails, if you save it should save in drafts...)

System - It is end to end testing, send mail to a maisl ID and check the inbox of that mail ID where Mail is recieved, if no then bug, if Yes, go and check the text,format, font .....whether it is same as sent

The main fuction of the software tester is to ensure that the application is created as per the requirement document. Incase there are any bugs, it has to be removed and ensure the quality of the applications/

Its Quality. Testing is a Quality Control (QC) activity. Software testing is the process of finding the defects so as to improve the quality of software. It doesnt mean that the software is 100% defect free but the quality will be high after validating when compared before testing.
