Ad hoc testing is concern with the Application Testing 
without following any rules or test cases. For Ad hoc 
testing one should have strong knowledge about the 
Application

Ad hoc testing is a subset of Monkey testing.In this no
formal test cases are used,it is being done due to lack of
the time. No testing approach is being used in this.

Adhoc Testing : Testing the application by tester who is 
having minimum knowledge of application information.so that 
his approach would be different to usual,there is chances 
of discovering uncovered bugs

Adhoc testing has advantage as well as disadvantage for 
every project

advantage: we check the application randomly so we reduce 
time consuming

Disadvantage: we will check the application randomly so we 
miss some activities. so there is chance of bugs i that 
activity

Ad - Hoc testing: This testing is done by developer or 
tester by excecuting the sample log of the application.This 
testing done to familarise with application and understand 
the application.

Due to lack of time, resources and budget..,the Testing 
Team is not able to conduct optimal testing.so they are 
conducting testing  on main activities of that build only.

continuos the testing without any proper methodology

Ad Hoc Testing:- The testing without using any test cases 
is called Ad Hoc testing.in this testing tester's attitude 
should be "Test to Break".It should test all the major 
functionality it's called Ad Hoc Testing.

The term adhoc means "for this" (something intended for a 
particular situation or purpose). Testing is performed 
without planning and Documentation

Adhoc testing is a type of testing that is completely
informal and this is done using no recognized test case design.
This is done purely based on the knowledge of the tester in
the application.

When we talk about adhoc testing, testers say it is the
testing process which is followed without following any
standard process

we keep talking on disadvantages of ad-hoc testing, but have
you ever thought why this process is followed? why there is
a need of following ad-hoc way of testing when this method
has many disadvantages

so here is my answer:
1. Ad-hoc Testing is very cost effective
2. Ad-hoc Testing can be followed even when documentation is
not present for the system
3. Ad-hoc Testing can be adjusted and done as per the budget
4. Ideal for small size companies

The tests are intended to be run only once, unless a defect
is discovered. Ad hoc testing is a part of exploratory
testing, being the least formal of test methods. In this
view, ad hoc testing has been criticized because it isn't
structured, but this can also be a strength: important
things can be found quickly. It is performed with
improvisation, the tester seeks to find bugs with any means
that seem appropriate. It contrasts to regression testing
that looks for a specific issue with detailed reproduction
steps, and a clear expected result. Ad hoc testing is most
often used as a complement to other types of testing.

Ad-Hoc testing is done only where is a time constraint. It is 
more or less Monkey testing. It will reduce the cost. Proper 
documentation is not required for the Ad-Hoc Testing.

It is an informal testing.In Ad-hoc testing we do not 
follow any rules.Usually used in very small projects where 
planning is not needed, or used if there is lack of time in 
the project when you are pproching the deadline.

Ad hoc is a primary testing which is done by developer or
tester without follow any instruction or test cases. . . .in
this we test projectlike a normal user n check functions
which a general user check. . . . .

The success of Adhoc testing depends upon the capability of
the tester who carries out the test. The tester has to find
bugs without any proper planning and documentation solely
based on just his intuition.

-->Tesing the product randomly without following the testcases.

-->Ad Hoc Testing is basially a -ve or Negative Testing.


-->Without preparing and executing test cases and with some
knowledge of application Adhoc testing is done.

Ad-hoc testing is testing the application randomly........ 
this type of testing doesn't have any test cases ad hoc 
testing can be carried out by test engineers creativity while carrying the actual testing if got any creative  idea about 
catching the defect it will be a ad hoc one

Ad Hoc testing is basically an unstructured one. As it has 
performed without any documentation or planning.
It is used to find the scope and the duration of the test 
cases.
However it can  detect defects very quickly but it can't be 
produced as is has no documentation attached with it.It can 
be used to priroritize the application to be checked 
afterward.

Ad hoc testingis a commonly used term forsoftware 
testingperformed without planning and documentation (but 
can be applied to early scientific experimental studies).
The tests are intended to be run only once, unless a defect 
is discovered.Ad hoctesting is the least formal test 
method. As such, it has been criticized because it is not 
structured and hence defects found using this method may be 
harder to reproduce (since there are no written test cases). 
However, the strength of ad hoc testing is that important 
defects can be found quickly.
It is performed by improvisation: the tester seeks to 
findbugsby any means that seem appropriate. Ad hoc testing 
can be seen as a light version oferror guessing, which 
itself is a light version ofexploratory testing

Ad hoc testing is conducted on already tested application 
functionalities.In this approach the functionalities are 
tested randomly based on experience and knowledge on the 
application

"Adhoc Testing" is one such type of testing where it does
not required any documentation or in other way we can say
Adhoc testing can be performed without- any Test case
writing, Test plan preparation. 

Adhoc always direct towards doing something without planing
or without preparation. This type of testing is conducted to
learning the application in efficient manner for a tester.
No result can be abstract from this testing.

Though small companies are adopting this testing but due to
not proper synthesize they are doing "adjusting to complete"
manner and no huge bug detection can be expected because no
documentation is prepared. By its nature it is cost
effective and time saving activity. Preferable if the domain
expertise tester conducting the adhoc testing.

I expect this will able to give a clear picture about Adhoc
Testing.

Thanks, take care

ADHOC testing performed without any formal test plan,test 
scenario,test cases and test data..Helps to identify the 
hidden defects that might have been missed in all the previous 
test efforts..It test the system with different combinations 
of functionalities on the basis of error guessing and 
experience about similar application in past...

Adhoc testing is conducting due to the lack of time,due to 
lack of documentation.this is illigal.when the client 
requirments are frequently changing that time also tester 
can't test completlyand time &efforts wasting.chinpangy 
testing,gorilla testing.etc comes under adhoc testing.
