What is smoke testing?..

Answer / udaykumar

1. Checking for the basic functinality or basic features of
the project once we receive the build is called Smoke
2. If any of the basic functionality is failed, then we
dont continue with testing. we simply reject the build. It
means we will check whether the build is stable or not.
3. Here we will select some of the functionality test cases
and these test cases are called smoke test cases. All these
test cases should be passed.

What is smoke testing?..

Answer / narsimha sharma

Smoke testing: This is the initial level of testing for new software build for the testers. Whenever a new software build released to testers then they need to conduct smoke testing to ensure that whether the build was ready for testable or not or we can say that to ensure the build is stable so that we can continued testing on it without any interrupt or we can say that 'to confirm that the released software is just working or not so that we can perform further level of testing on it'. Smoke testing is the best practice to conduct in every new software build we received from developers.
