These include user commands, data manipulation, searches and business processes, user screens, and integrations.Non-Functional Testing: Testing the application against client's and performance requirement. Non-Functional testing is done based on the requirements and test scenarios defined by the client. Non-functional testing is concerned with the non-functional requirements and is designed to evaluate the readiness of a system according to several criteria not covered by functional testing.
