what is the diff between smoke testing & monkey testing?

Answer / k.e.mohanraj
In computer science, a monkey test is a unit test that runs
with no specific test in mind. The monkey in this case is
the producer of any input. For example, a monkey test can
enter random strings into text boxes to ensure handling of
all possible user input or provide garbage files to check
for loading routines that have blind faith in their data.
The test monkey is technically known to conduct stochastic
testing, which is in the category of black-box testing.
The name 'monkey' comes from the adage that ‘a thousand
monkeys at a thousand typewriters will eventually type out
the entire works of Shakespeare’. Cf. the Infinite monkey
Refers to the first test made after assembly or repairs to
a system, to provide some assurance that the system under
test will not catastrophically fail. After a smoke test
proves that the software will not crash outright," the
system is ready for more stressful testing.
AD HOC TESTING:
Ad hoc testing is a commonly used term for software testing
performed 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 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.

Monkey testing is executing testcases radomly to check the
overall functionality of the application is working or not.
where as smoke testing is testing whether the application
is ready for major testing or not

Answer / vicky
Monkey testing also known as adhoc and random testing.this
type of testing is performed with out any test cases.tester
enters any value as test data and checks it is functioning
well or not
smoke testing checking the main functionality for which
software/system is been under construction is working in
expected way or not

Monkey Testing: Testing a system or an Application on the
fly, i.e. just few tests here and there to ensure the
system or an application does not crash out.
Smoke Testing: Typically an initial testing effort to
determine if a new software version is performing well
enough to accept it for a major testing effort. For
example, if the new software is crashing systems every 5
minutes, bogging down systems to a crawl, or corrupting
databases, the software may not be in a 'sane' enough
condition to warrant further testing in its current state.

Smoke or Sanity testing is a inteial testing effort on the
system wether to accept it for the Major testing process.
Monkey or ADhoc testing is the testing process mainly done
with out test cases written prior to the testing .

Answer / samuel david dhas, banyan soft
When a build is received, a smoke test is run to ascertain
if the build is stable and it can be considered for further
When a bulid is recived the tester will test the software
randon as the monkey picks up things. This fuctions must be
satisfied to be realsed.
Both are more or less similar only

Answer / sachidanand biradar
In smoke testing we will follow the certain step's while
testing , when we recieve the build or patch .
Whereas Money (Adhoc) testing we don't follow follow the
step's while testing
