Sanity Testing: General Characteristics

A lot of testing types can be performed on a new build before the detailed verification. In such a case, build acceptance testing, smoke testing and sanity testing are executed.

Every software testing type focuses on particular system component or functional issue. But all these types were developed to discover bugs (the incorrect system work or the mismatching of the requirements specification). Software testing is a way of improving the product and providing its effective work.

Sanity testing resembles regression testing. It is often performed during desktop testing, mobile testing and website testing.    

The aim of sanity testing is to make sure that the small modifications of code and the bug fixing process provide an appropriate work of the product and do not change it.

The specialists perform sanity testing before other software checking types such as functional testing, performance testing, etc.

What Are the Peculiarities of Sanity Testing?

  • The particular functional issue of application is checked with the help of sanity testing. It finds out whether there are any violations of the work of fixed and modified components.
  • Usually, sanity testing is executed manually. This checking type cannot be performed automatically.
  • The aim of sanity testing is to make sure that all functional capabilities of the product satisfy the requirement specification.

Sanity testing is a kind of acceptance testing. When a new build is modified and changed, the specialist of software testing company should check whether it is suitable for further testing of the product.
