If you want to be able to move your software from one machine platform to another, then portability testing is necessary. This kind of testing validates that an application can be recompiled for a different platform, or that it can be applied to multiple platforms in its current state. If you’ve ever seen the “installation requirements” for a software application, then you have seen the results of portability testing.

The objectives of portability testing is to determine if the system can be ported and which environments it can be ported to. For instance, some software can only be used on a Windows machine, while others have a Mac version as well. In order to have those two versions working correctly, portability was validated during testing. The necessary ram and disk space, processing speed, and screen resolutions are also examples of portability items. Additionally, maintaining the look and feel of an application between various systems is important so that every user has the same experience. Another often overlooked issue is the application’s ability to co-exist with other independent applications that share common resources.

If you would like to make sure your application can be installed on multiple operating systems, can be used on multiple devices, is compatible with other leading, independent software, or if it will replace a previous version of the same or similar software, then portability testing should be high on your list of testing requirements.
