What’s Regression Testing? When should you perform this test?

Regression Testing is a method of testing to ensure that any code changes in software do not affect the functionality of the product. This is done to make sure that the product functions well with any new functionality, bug fixes, or changes to existing features. To verify the effect of the change, previously executed test cases will be re-examined.

Regression Testing Overview

A regression testing is a verification method. Automating test cases is common because test cases must be run again and again. It can also make it tedious and time-consuming to run the same test cases manually.

When should you perform this test?

Regression testing is typically done after the validation of new functionality or changes. This is often not the case. Regression tests are necessary for releases that take months to complete. Regression tests can be used for weekly releases after Functional Testing has concluded.
