    Re: What is end to end testing?

    You can start by searching google for end to end scenario testing...

    But in short end to end refers taking a complete business scenario and testing it from start to finish in the system, sometimes looking at the system from the point of view of multiple user profiles.

    For example look at the scenario of opening a new account at a bank, where the teller will enter the information, then the customer will sign all the relevant paperwork, and the manager will review all the information and approve it before making it final.

    This is a technique and not a testing phase. So its relation with System Testing is that End-to-End Scenarios are one of the techniques that can be employed during this phase.

    Re: What is end to end testing?

    In our testing community, end to end testing is a test that includes high priority tests and all the nice to have tests. We basically arrived to this point when we found out that the previous build needs more test granularity.

    Normally to avoid production issues End to End testing will be done by the users. Users may play with the system starting point to end point according to their business flows.

    Aren't you mistaking end-to-end testing with Alpha or Beta Testing, or even Acceptance Testing?

    End to end testing is nothing but testing the product from its end user perspective ie (a complete test of all the functionality and the system)

    Re: What is end to end testing?

    When you say End to end testing, it means testing all systems invloved like for example start from submission of order, order processed by different interfaces till it is closed. Whereas system testing focusses only on a particular system. Scope here gets limited. hope this clarifies

    Re: What is end to end testing?

    E2E testing also means testing involves from the beginning to the end of software development. People do focus more on this these days to reduce cost since everyone knows cost of fixing a bug at production is over 150 times higher than it was found in Requirement. That's why some company invest money in Requirement testing tool, API testing, etc. to deliver a concept "e2e testing", included in outsource model as well.

    Re: What is end to end testing?

    Suppose we have 5 Modules and then we created another Module say "Module 6" and they all use the same resource(s) then it should not be like that "Module 6" will affect the previous applications or it will be affected by the present Modules.In End to end testing we test these aspects.

    End-to-End Testing will be done in two ways:
    ============================================
    a) E2E within the system or same application
    b) E2E with down/up stream application(s)
    The above a) and b) will be considered based on the time and cost of the project
    a) E2E within the system: This is nothing but all the possible scenarios that will be used in the application. This is part and parcel of system testing.
    b) E2E with down/up stream application(s): This will be done before or after system testing is completed which depends up on time and cost of the project. This can be done
    in two ways:
    i) High level
    ii) Low level
    i) High level: Here we will only check that the records created in our application are visible in other down/up stream application(s), which is verified by the down/up stream
    application's test team. Validation of data is not done in this level.
    ii) Low level: Here we will check that the records created in our system are visible in
    other down/up stream application(s), verification of data, validation of data, reflection of
    updates in base application which are done in down/up stream application(s), impact
    testing are done in this level.
