Learn System Testing:

Definition:                                

            System testing is testing conducted on a complete, integrated system to evaluate the system's compliance with its specified requirements. System testing falls within the scope of Black box testing, and as such, should require no knowledge of the inner design of the code   or.logic.                         

As a rule, System testing takes, as its input, all of the "integrated" software components that have successfully passed Integration testing and also the software system itself integrated with any applicable hardware system

System testing is actually done to the entire system against the Functional Requirement Specifications (FRS) and/or the System Requirement Specification (SRS). Moreover, the System testing is an investigatory testing phase, where the focus is to have almost a destructive attitude and test not only the design, but also the behavior and even the believed expectations of the customer. It is also intended to test up to and beyond the bounds defined in the software/hardware requirements specifications.

One could view System testing as the final destructive testing phase before Acceptance testing.

System testing should be performed by testers who are trained to plan, execute, and report on application and system code. They should be aware of scenarios that might not occur to the end user, like testing for null, negative, and format inconsistent values. A tester should be able to repeat the steps that caused an error.

The following examples are different types of testing that should be considered during System testing:


   Functional testing

         User interface testing

         Usability testing

         Compatibility testing

         Model based testing

         Error exit testing

         User help testing

         Security testing

         Capacity testing

         Performance testing

         Sanity testing

         Regression testing

         Reliability testing

         Recovery testing

         Installation testing

         Maintenance testing

         Accessibility testing,
