    Smile system testing vs end to end testing

    are we test the whole system again in the end to end testing same as system testing or just test the scenarios with the sub systems and backend those are integrated with the systems?

    Here is an answer to your query.
    When end-to-end testing is carried out, it is the flow of activities in the system starting from scratch to the end of the system which are tested. On the other hand, in system testing, the system as a whole is tested to find defects, if any, in the system. In most cases, end-to-end testing is carried out after changes have been made to the system, while system testing is carried out towards the end of the software development, where the application is validated against the requirements of the end user. To explain the difference between end-to-end testing and system testing further, we can take an example. If an email page is being tested, the starting point in end-to-end testing is logging into the page, while the end point is when you log out of the page. On the other hand, system testing is when you work through entire system, like logging into the system, sending an email, opening an email, replying to an email, forwarding the email, etc., and finally logging out of the system. Any defects in moving from one component to another and the working of the component itself is the aim of system testing. Therefore, end-to-end testing is often considered to be a subset of system testing.

    Often end-to-end testing and system testing are considered to be the same. However, from the above discussion it is clear that both of them are different from the other. More than the difference between end-to-end and system testing, it is important to note that both of them have an important role to play in the entire process of software testing. Using both of them a number of defects in the testing can be unearthed.
