Regression Testing: After a patch or bug fixes, a system should be Regression Tested to ensure that the applied changes didn’t adversely affect other parts of the system. These issues could be functional, non-functional, or even aesthetic. Far too often, fixing one issue can introduce defects somewhere else in the software. These unintentional side-effects can do damage to a company name by causing the users to lose trust in the application. The purpose of regression testing is to make sure that any modification done has had only positive results and that the application still meets the requirements. While tests for any new functionality or the changes made to additional functionality were successful, regression testing could fail due to problems elsewhere in the application.
Regression tests are ideal candidates for automation since they must be performed repeatedly, each and every time changes are made to the system. For this to be done manually, it can be tedious and time consuming. Even when server patches or database upgrades are performed, full regression testing must be done to ensure the integrity of the complete system so that customers are not adversely affected. Generally, Regression test suites cover the full functionality but in a limited capacity.
