    Re: Difference between sanity and smoke test

    Hi,
    This is also called as sanity testing. This is mainly used to identify environmental related problems and is performed mostly by test manager. For any application it is always necessary to have the environment first checked for smooth running of the application. So in this testing process the application is run in the environment technically called as dry run and checked to find that the application could run without any problem or abend in between.

    Regards,
    Janelyn

    Re: Difference between sanity and smoke test

    This type of testing is also called sanity testing. This testing is done in order to ensure whether the application or system developed is ready for further major testing. This is done so that the system or application can function properly at least to the minimum expected level.

    Re: Difference between sanity and smoke test

    Diffrent Companys use diffrent kinds. It depends on them. But Actually
    Sanity and Smoke are same they are used for testing the navigating steps of application in a sequence form. But some people use Sanity First i,e when the tester gets the Build(EXE). And Does the Smoke testing a day before the release of the Project,Prductor program....
    ok

    In simple words, i feel the following about Sanity and Smoke Testing.

    Sanity Testing: Brief test of major functional elements of a piece of software to determine if its basically operational.
    Sanity Tests are useful both for initial environment validation and future interactive increments.It gives a measure of confidence that the system works as expected prior to a more exhaustive round of testing.

    Smoke Testing: A quick-and-dirty test that the major functions of a piece of software work.Smoke tests are designed to confirm that changes in the code do function as expected and do not cause failure of the rest of an entire build.a smoke test generally consists of a collection of tests that can be applied to a newly created or repaired computer program. Sometimes the test is performed by the automated system that builds the final software.

    The Web Standards Project online Acid test is to test the compliance of the web browser with software technology standards.Any browser could match its software code against the test and get instant results online whether it passed or not.

    The test is really an effort to draw a line in the sand between compliance with open industry standards and exclusionary web sites based on closed proprietary formats.
    Apple Computer's Safari was the first to pass the test last year.

    when we get failure in the build during sanity testing then we report the problems to devlopment team(its depends on company)
    After completion of their modifications, they release build to testing team.
    again starts sanity testing untill the build is stable.

    Smoke Testing:It is first testing to be performed on the intial build before tester takes it for further testing.
    It is done on build level .
    It is also used to check basic functionality of the build.

    Sanity Testing:It is done on module level and It is used to check main functionality of the build.
    one more point is to check the bugs which are found during smoke testing whether they are resolved or not?

    Re: Difference between sanity and smoke test

    Hi All, dont confuse with Smoke and Sanity, its very simple.

    Smoke Testing is not intend to test any functionality of the application. Its a just ensuring successfull deployment of build, configuration of Email server, DB connectivity, resource bundle deployment and more like PDF generation(depends on application and requirement).

    Sanity Testing is testing the major functionality ensuring build is stable for further testing efforts(for system testing).

    Is it Clear now??

    Re: Difference between Santity Testing & Smoke Testing

    The sanity testing is to see how sane the application is for further testing where as smoke testing is see whether new features or functionality added are working good with exiting one and there is no problem.

    Re: Difference between sanity and smoke test

    Before geving build to the testing team in the development site people conducting smoke testing for completeness & correctness.
    After receiving bild from develop ment site and for tester acceptance test(before the testers going to comlete execution of applcation) the testing team conndecting a test for completeness & correcness of an application build is called sanity test.
    That's all

    Hiiiiiiii................
    ..............Lots of wishes to all of you from Heart
    On Happy New Year 2007..................

    Sanity Testing :
    Is can say the testing tht covers all those test cases or steps tht r necessary to pass to start the next level of testing.(Main concern is u can go forward(Next level) only when you get passesd all the necessary steps(Test Cases) at that level of testing.)

    Smoke Testing:
    Some how can say that it's over look testing whr intention is not going to deep But testing the main functionalities of the system thoroughly.(Finally can say testing the system thoroughly & it need to have experience of that level tht u can verify the system on smoke testing, u know wht the things r must to chk ,which parts r mostly hav to b tested, like all that.)

    Friends plz correct me If i m wrong I wil b thank ful to u.
    Thnx & regards

    Re: What do you mean by Use Cases?

    smoke testing: most cost effective method for identifying and detectind defects in software! They are designed to confirm that changes in the code function as expected!

    Sanity testing : it is to test basic required functionality of the basic system!

    Gamma Testing: at customer site! Refers to the process of improving and evolving products after the initial release!

    hope iam clear !

    Re: What do you mean by Use Cases?

    Hello vmshenoy,
    Congratulations for being member of the month.
    Can u explain smoke testing in a bit detail. Because somebody in this forum itself had said that smoke testing is not intended to test any functionality of the application.its just ensuring of successful deployment of build and all its attachments...
    I am a bit confused...

    Re: Difference between sanity and smoke test

    Hi

    I think simply we say as
    sanity testing means whether the build is ready for further testing or not
    smoke testing means wheter the build is ready fr release or not

    i think this is also right

    if any mistake plz tell me
    ok
    Thanks

    Re: Difference between sanity and smoke test

    Sanity testing is testing the new version is working better than the previous version.
    Smoke testing is just running the application to know the flow & functionality of the application

    Re: Difference between sanity and smoke test

    Sanity Testing is a narrow type of regression testing...ie, testing a particular module of an application in deeper...

    smoke Testing is a wide range of testing..ie,testing an application without getting in to deeper...

    i guess i'm ri8!!! if any issues plz lemme know...

    With regards
