Agile is nothing but where the code implementation does not happen fully for a feature and it will be a periodical release.

For example, if the developer has 10 components needs to be implemented for a feature then they will release important (they will decide this) components first, say 8. The remaining 2 components will be released in next release.

Projects are divided in small features to be developed and tested in specific time-frames.

Put simply is the close collaboration between the test writer and the developers to ensure test scripts can both be rapidly created and are robust.

The objective is excellent quality products in less time.

Agile Testing is a iterative way of testing. Here the changes to the requirement can be adopted at any time even at the last minute of development, its the main use of agile testing. Most of the software companies follows this testing method.

Agile Testing is a incremental kind of a testing.
Here the project is developed in an incremental approach under certain time constraints, so is the testing done according to the incremental development approach.
Sometimes it follows test driven approach i.e. test cases are designed before the development process starts which makes the product more accurate and development is faster with a minimal error rate.

Agile is the way of testing process where in requirements will be changed/modified very frequently so that testing has to be carried out for each iteration or the new build deployment to verify/identify the new changes have been met.

Normally agile testing has been followed for big[in-terms of time duration] projects.

Agile testing is a software testing practice that follows the principles of agile software development. Agile testing does not emphasize testing procedures and focuses on ongoing testing against newly developed code until quality software from an end customers perspective results. Agile testing is built upon the philosophy that testers need to adapt to rapid deployment cycles and changes in testing patterns.

Agile is a methodology of development/testing.

Let us take and classic example of Yahoo Mail, which everyone might have used.

1. The entire project would be decided to be completed on a specific time limits and the time limits are then split into segments called sprints.

2. The sprints would last for 2-4 weeks time limits.

3. The requirements are split into smaller segments called user stories by the Business analyst.
Like the login section of Yahoo Mail, Inbox, Sent Mail, Trash etc

4. The developers and tester come together and have a meeting where the user stories are given points/score for each and every user story.

5. Depending of the score the priority of the story is also decided.

6. Then the developers start working on the coding part of it and simultaneously the testers will start writing the test cases based on the user stories.

7. Once the coding part is done, then the testers will execute their test cases and find defects and report the same to the developers and the developers fix the defects.

8. The testers test the defects and if fixed then the user story is marked as complete.

9. The above steps 4-8 are completed within the stipulated sprint time lines of 2 or 3 weeks as decided by the management.

10. Then the next sprint starts and theere few user stories will be taken into action and then this cycle will continue till all user stories are covered.

11. At the end of it, we perform a regression testing on the entire project and there few defects will be found and fixed.

Hope this helps
