When it comes to software testing, automated testing and manual testing are the two methods of software testing and both of them are crucial for software development. For the manual testing, tester has to sit in front of screens and go through the them. In contrast, automated testing is much more effective for tester as test cases are executed automatically by using tool/software.
Having said that, both of them have their own benefits and disadvantages. Depend on many factors like budget, timeline and human recourse,… You could choose the right type of testing to archive your goals.
Automated testing is a process that makes use of automation testing tools to execute pre-scripted tests on applications, then compares the test results to the expected behavior and reports it to the testers. In addition, Automation testing tools also have the Record and Playback features which help you to record all your testing activities. Basically, Automation testing tools repeat the predefined actions then compare the results to the predicted behavior. If the outcome and the expected results align, your product is working as it’s supposed to do.
Manual testing is a process of finding out the defects or bugs in a software program. In this way, tester will simulate the role of end user to go through all the features all the application to make sure that they are working as they are supposed to work. All will be done manually so it is time consuming and laborious.
Understand advantages and disadvantages of each type of testing, you will know when to use manual testing and when to use automated testing. Using the right method for each testing situation will save your time and give you best results.
