Answer / chandra sekhar

Regression testing only.
Basically retesting is used to test the application again
and again with different data to know the functionlaty of
the apllication with diffrent typed of data.
Where as Regression is used to revalidate whether the
defect found in the phase 1 OR 2 is resolved properly and
mainly now/currently the latest build is working fine or
not and also because of resolving the existing issues is
there any side effects/new defects created(Looking for the
new defects because of esolving the existing defect)

Answer / prateek

Retesting is carried out to ensure solution(fix) provided
by developer to defect is working correctly. Retest can be
performed with range of data.

Where as Regression testing carried out to test if fix
provided to 'defect' is not affecting existing working
functionality... Regression script(Test caese) can be a
part of your "1000 test cases" or seperate one...


Just consider out of 1000 test cases, you have run 200 test
cases & at 201 test case you found the bug... raised
defect... solution received(defect fixed by developer)...
assigned for retest...

Here you will retest the defect with range of data. If it
pass successfully then and then only you will have to think
about impact of this defect on tested & working
functionality for which you had successfully run 200 test
cases...

Pick few script from those 200 script & re execute them
again to ensure that fix is not affected any other
functionality & all are working fine...

Answer / a tester

There is bit difference between retesting and regression testing.
In Retesting, a tester tests the fix of the defect. In that tester only assure that whether that defect is fixed or not? but Regression testing carried out to test if fix
provided to that 'defect' is not affecting existing working
functionality or breaking any existing functionality.
And if a tester has 1000 test cases and have a limited time period to do the regression, tester should regress the critical functionality of the application, so business should not be impacted.

Answer / suvendu acharya

Normally we have a set of testcase which we r using for
regretion testing, we r not testing all the testcase in
each release, we r just executint the regression testcase
only to check wheather the change in one module affects the
other modules or not, so in ur case if it comes under ur
regression testcase then u have to do regression testing,
but u r saying it is a bug then as of my knowledge u have
to do retesting.
In retesting normally we r testing the diffect again and
again with same test data & test enviornment.

Answer / kishores

WE perform regression testing but not on all the test cases.
we will check with traceability matrix and based on the
requirement mapped in the traceability matrix we perform
regression on those test cases.
In traceability matrix requirement id, description and test
cases will be mentioned so we can easily map the requirement
and come to know those test cases which have to be regressed.
