What is Retesting?..

Answer / manas

Re-testing means Re Testing of the Application. It is not
Regression testing. Regression testing is done after the
successful completion of Re-Testing.

For Example you have an application which is compose of 10
modules. Modules 4,5,10 are interlink means. On your first
phase of testing you find a bug on module 5 which is having
10 test cases.

On your second phase of testing you should first do the re-
testing of the fix bug, you have to re execute all the 10
test cases of the module, i.e Re-testing

After successful completion of re-testing you will execute
all the test cases of module 4, 10 as, the two module is
inter related to the module 5. i.e Regression Testing

What is Retesting?..

Answer / shravan kumar b

If you can understand the main difference between Re-Testing
and Regression Testing, it makes you better understanding
about the theme of Re-Testing.

I want to explain this with a simple example:

There are 10 modules. say there is a modification in 5th
module. After doing the modifications in 5th module we have
test so that we can find out is that modification is
directly or indirectly effecting the application or not.

So, Testing only 5th module where we got the bug is

Testing entire modules from 1 to 10 is called regression

Please correct me if I am Wrong;

What is Retesting?..

Answer / chandru

When a Tester finds a bug in the software, the coder fixes
the bug by making the changes in code.
Now the tester will check the same sceanrio again to see
whether the bug still exists or it is working he
will be exceuting only those failed test cases for that
particular Module which were responsible for that bug. This
is called Re- Testing.

But the changes done in the code will have impact elsewhere
also i.e in the other areas and Modules. So we have to
execute all the test cases to see that the changes done in
the code has not affected the other areas also. This is
called regression testing.
