Verification Testing: It is the set of activities which ensures that the software correctly impliments a specific function.Validation Testing: It is the different set of activities which ensures that the software that has been built is tracable to the client requirements.Verification is mostly done by the developer, and all white box testing techniques can be used for verification testing.Validation Testing is the responsibility of the tester, and all the tests done in block box testing will be treated as validation tests.

Hi this is Susheel.I want share some idea about the Verification And the Validation.If u know the V model,In that model,which is comprises of the Veification & Validation model.In which there r some phases like Requirment Review,Special review for Functional Design Specification,Design review,Code review all comes under the verification.And the Unit Testing,integration testing,system testing.Acceptance testing comes under the Validation.Verification is QA process,It is preventions of the defect.It is related to the Process.Validation is QC proess,it is detection of the is related to the product.

Verification:- These are the activities done before the code is developed.Nothing to be executed on computer.It is a static techniques and includesReviews ----- Informal checkingInspection ------Formal Checking Walkthrough ------Guided CheckingAudit -------Sampled checkingIt is a defect prevention bases.It is a construction techniques.Remember prevention is less costly than detection.If we prevent the defects in the early stages it takes less time and cost that detecting defects.All activities on the left side of V- Model are verification activities.It is also a QA process.Validation : - Real time testing of the finished product.It is a destruction activity .It is a dynamic technique and includesTesting and Prototyping.All activities on the right side of V model are Validation activities.This is done by the Tester as well as developers at Unit Level.Correct me if I am wrong.

I don't have the reference right handy to give them credit, but the simplest way I've heard the difference between verification and validation described is this (may be paraphrased):Verification is ensuring you built the product rightValidation is ensuring you built the right productSo in other words, Verification is checking to make sure what you built works the way you intended it to, while validation is checking to make sure what you built properly addresses the problem it was intended to solve (works the way the person it was built for intended it to.)

Verification is a quality process that is used to evaluate whether or not a product, service, or system complies with a regulation, or conditions imposed at the start of a development phase. Verification can be in development, scale-up, or production. This is often an internal process.Validation is the process of establishing evidence that provides a high degree of assurance that a product, service, or system accomplishes its intended requirements. This often involves acceptance of fitness for purpose with end users and other product stakeholders.VenenderReddy

Projects aim to deliver software to specification. For the project to deliver what the customer needs requires a correct specification. Additionally, the delivered system must meet the specification. This is known as validation (is this the right specification?) and verification (is the system correct to spec-ification?).
