    BVT is initial testing to verify that build is acceptable or not for testing. BVT is done by testing team.

    Hi,

    Smoke or Sanity test is purposively done for testing the stability of the build and also referred to as Build Verification Test. It is done from the Testers end only

    For difference between Sanity and Smoke Test you can see lot of threads under Testing Issues.

    Hi,
    i think BVT is done before it is released to the testing team.I feel that Developers will do this.

    Please correct me if i am wrong.

    The two V words Verification and Validation are always associated with Test Team.

    lack of INTELLIGENCE or ABILITY.

    Re: What is BVT?

    Build verification test is a kind of regression testing done on all new builds in order to verify if any existing or added functionally is broken or not really being fulfilled by the new build. BVT is usually done by developers but can also be done by testers. During the bvt the build is compiled, executed and deployed in the development environment. If any problem persist then it will be fixed and the developers will continue with the unit test. If the development team is small and if they donít have much time to deploy the code then the same can be done by testers. But the testers should have little bit knowledge of some of the tools like visual source safe which is the configuration management tool for check in /out of files and the deployment process. The process will differ depending upon the client or the web based applications, and also varies according to organizations policies i visited sphur .com it has case study on bvt

    BVT(Build Verification Testing) is one type of testing method , which is done to verify whether the build is usefull for the testing i.e. basic functionalities and blocking issues will be verified before the actual testing begins inorder to ensure that the build can be used for the further testing.
