Frequently asked questions about continuous testing.
What is continuous testing?
The move towards a more agile software production has introduced the concept of Continuous delivery (CD). Continuous delivery is a software development practice where code changes are automatically prepared for a release to production. A pillar of modern application development, continuous delivery expands upon continuous integration by deploying all code changes to a testing environment and/or a production environment after the build stage. When properly implemented, developers will always have a deployment-ready build artifact that has passed through a standardized test process. After a feature has been developed, but before it is released, what is most time-consuming is testing and all its related activities. Testing can be sped up with automation, and at the same time increase accuracy and lower risk, which overall enhances product quality. This is why automation is key in Agile.
Why is continuous testing important?
Continuous testing is important because it helps catch defects earlier in the development process, when they are easier and less costly to fix. By continuously running tests as code changes are made, developers can identify and fix issues as they arise, rather than waiting until later in the development process or after the software has been deployed. This can help improve the overall quality of the software, and can save time and resources that would have been spent on debugging and fixing issues later on.
What types of tests can be run as part of continuous testing?
Continuous testing can involve running a variety of different types of tests, including unit tests, integration tests, and functional tests. The specific types of tests that are run will depend on the needs of the project and the goals of the testing process.
How is continuous testing different from continuous integration?
Continuous integration is a software development practice in which code changes are automatically built, tested, and merged into a shared repository. Continuous testing is a related practice in which tests are continuously run against code changes, usually as part of a continuous integration process. While continuous integration and continuous testing are often used together, they are not the same thing. Continuous integration focuses on the process of building and integrating code changes, while continuous testing focuses on the process of running and evaluating tests.
