what is differance between smoke testing and sanity testing?..

Answer / neha

Smoke testing is non-exhaustive software testing,
ascertaining that the most crucial functions of a program
work, but not bothering with finer details.

Sanity testing is a cursory testing; it is performed
whenever a cursory testing is sufficient to prove the
application is functioning according to specifications.
This level of testing is a subset of regression testing. It
normally includes a set of core tests of basic GUI
functionality to demonstrate connectivity to the database,
application servers, printers, etc.
