Answer / illur iqbal............new del

Synchronization points enable you to solve anticipated
timing problems between the test and your application. For
example, if you create a test that opens a database
application, you can add a synchronization point that
causes the test to wait until the database records are
loaded on the screen.

Verification Point: This is used to check the Actual and
Expected Results of an Excuted test.

Answer / allin

verification point:- compare the expected value and actual
Syncronization point:-control is going to wait for before
line proper execution. for example, if u are executing a
TSL script 1......10 lines of script. suppose in 5th line
button_press("search")functionality existed; search will take
more time to execute that statement if u compare with other
statements.That means control should wait upto search results
should be displayed. but the control is going to execute the
next line. user should not allow the control to execute next
line.so that we r inserting synchronization points with wait()
or wait_info() functions.
