Answer / bishwajit.rk

I agree with Satya to some extend. To my view Regression
Testing is the process of retesting the application after a
defect is fixed, to check if due to this fixed, no other
problems is caused to its related features.
Lets take an example:
In our application, there are 10 features,
Ft1
Ft2
Ft3
Ft4
Ft5
Ft6
Ft7
Ft8
Ft9
Ft10
Lets consider, defects are fixed in Ft4 and Ft8. Now, to
run the regression, we have to check which features are
inter-related to the features Ft4 and Ft8, say Ft3 & Ft5
for Ft4 and Ft7 & Ft9 for Ft8. Once its identified, the
related testcase are identified from Ft3, Ft5, Ft7 and Ft9.
And these related testcases are used for running the
Regression.

Regression Testing run whenever changes are made in the
Application.

Answer / nagk

we do Regression testing
1)when bug is found in one module after it fixed,we check
the fixed bug and other modules if it other are depend on
this fixed module

ex:-there a,b,c,d are four modules a is independent from
others and b and c are depend on each other,d also independent.
if we found bug in a we don't need to do regression but if
it is in c we check bug is fixed in c also because of
changing c if it has any effect on b this is called
regression testing

2)when new version software is released for existing one
with few extra features.Because of newly added features
previous functionlities may get effect.to check new features
and previous one.here new feature have to be test manually
and detailed but previous ones are done by automated tools

these is the main reason for existing of automated tools



am i right?

Answer / uday kumar. a

Hi Naresh, you are correct. But here we dont execute all
the test cases. We execute only the effected module test
cases or effected functionality.

It might be full dependent on the time.

If we have no time we will check only the issue(sometimes).
