Hi Sneha,

String Testing is the testing of module-to-module linkages prior to full Integration Testing. Each program in the Application System will be completed (ie, written but not tested) at a different time. The differences between these staggered endings can be put to good use by performing String Testing while waiting for all programs to be completed so that Integration Testing can begin at a known synchronisation point. This makes String Testing a subset of Integration Testing. Therefore, String Testing is considered to be optional.

String Testing is not expected to test every condition the Function may encounter. It is expected to test:
- Integration with all other Functions.
- Integration with other Application Systems (ie, across System Boundaries via their System Interfaces).
- Conformance to Programming Standards.
- Consistent "look and feel" with other Application System Functions (see "Useability Testing").
- Performance (eg, elapsed time and response time) characteristics.

String Testing is NOT the major form of Quality Assurance performed on the Application System.
