    Re: acceptence testing

    Acceptance testing:

    Acceptance testing is black-box testing performed on a system (e.g. software, lots of manufactured mechanical parts, or batches of chemical products) prior to its delivery. In some engineering subdisciplines, it is known as Functional testing, black-box testing, release acceptance, QA testing, application testing, confidence testing, final testing, validation testing, usability testing, or factory acceptance testing.

    Acceptance testing by the system provider is distinguished from acceptance testing by the customer (the user or client) prior to accepting transfer of ownership. In such environments, acceptance testing performed by the customer is known as beta testing, user acceptance testing (UAT), end user testing, site (acceptance) testing, or field (acceptance) testing.

    system testing
    System testing is performed on the entire system in the context of a Functional Requirement Specification(s) (FRS) and/or a System Requirement Specification (SRS). System testing is an investigatory testing phase, where the focus is to have almost a destructive attitude[citation needed] and tests not only the design, but also the behaviour and even the believed expectations of the customer. It is also intended to test up to and beyond the bounds defined in the software/hardware requirements specification(s). System testing includes the Load testing and Stress Testing. Once the Load testing and Stress testing is completed successfully, the next level of Alpha Testing or Beta Testing will go ahead.

    End to end testing:
    This ensures that the overall process flows as expected, that is that system components integrate together correctly and that the right information is passed between them.
