    is retesting a part of regression testing?

    Hi,

    Retesting is generally associated with Defect Validation. Defect retest is one of the different stage in the Defect Life Cycle. When the Defect is fixed by the Developer it will be assigned for the Testing team to retest. In this time the retesting of defect will happen and either the defect will be closed or reopened based on the result of defect retesting.

    But regression testing is carried out while retesting the defect. When the defect is retested corresponding associated regression test cases are executed in order to quantify that not only the area in which the defect happens but also the associated functionality is also tested.

    Regression test suite will be executed each and every time the defect is retested and also when any new functionality is added into the system.

    Regards,
    Ganesan

    Cool Re: is retesting a part of regression testing?

    RE TESTING: When a defect is fixed by the developers, as a test Engineer we have to check that wether the defect fixed properly or not. If the defect is foxed properly then we change the status of defect report as FIX VERIFIED, if the defect is not fixed properly then we change the status of defect report as RE OPEN.

    REGRESSION TESTING: If a defect is fixed properly by developers, Again we have to check "Is there any side effects due to that defect" in the Application. We have Run the regression suit after a defect is fixed or a new functionality is added to the Application.

    Best of Luck.

    Regards,
    Prashanth Chenna.

    I think Retesting is part of Regression testing.When we perform Regression we have to retest.Retesting is partially dependent on Regression testing...

    Regression is also retesting, but the objective is different.
