Regression Testing: After a patch or bug fixes during normal software development cycles, a system should be Regression Tested using manual or automated regression testing 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, by fixing one issue the development teams can introduce defects somewhere else in the software. These unintentional side-effects within the application can do damage to a company name by causing the users to lose trust in the software application. The purpose of incorporating a regression test process into the quality assurance process 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 existing functionality were successful, regression testing could fail due to problems elsewhere in the application.
Software regression tests are ideal candidates for automated regression tests 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.
