1. Life cycle testing means performing test throughout the system development cycle, not just at the end before implementation.2. In other words,Life Cycle testing involves continuous testing of the solution even after the software plans are complete and the tested system implement.3. And one more.At predetermined points during the life cycle, the system is tested to ensure that it is being developed properly and that defects are detected at the earliest possible point the life cycle.
