QA is nothing but verification.where in focus is giving on
prevention of bugs. Testing is validation where in focus is
given on dectecting bugs.QA and testing have a very
important role in software development life cycle.
To make it more clear here is one example
Assume if a boy studying in 1 std have a aim to be doctor.
then one should make sure. The boy passes all the exams
from 1 to 10. while taking up 11 he should make sure to
take up science rather than arts,commerce. Once this is
done make sure he passes his 12th with good number of marks
and is qualified for entrance exam.finally when he gets
this degress in M.B.B.S . He is a doctor.
Watch. the whole process from 1 to his getting M.B.B.S
degress is nothing but QA that is quality asssurance.
Once the boy is doctor is nothing but Testing. here u r
testing wheather the boy is doctor or not. It is as good as
saying wheather he passed or failed.
