Need clarifications on smoke testing???



hi friend...

I need some clarifications while performing smoke testing.I have some basic knowledge in smoke testing:

smoke testing:

"In software engineering, a smoke test generally consists of a collection of tests that can be applied to a newly created or repaired computer program. "

In software testing, a smoke test is a collection of written tests that are performed on a system prior to being accepted for further testing. This is also known as a build verification test. This is a "shallow and wide" approach to the application. The tester "touches" all areas of the application without getting too deep


1.Smoke test generally consists of a collection of tests?? What are the collection of test done while performing smoke testing?????

2.A smoke test is a collection of written tests that are performed on a system prior to being accepted for further testing...we need to write scripts to perform smoke testing, if it is so in what language and what is the use????

3.Can the smoke testing can be conducted to web based and windows based application????

4.The tester "touches" all areas of the application without getting too deep??? I am confused touching all the areas but without deeply how?????

I have posted the question in our geek forum under the category testing issues: Title need clarification on smoke testing

Hi Deepa,

You said "In software testing, a smoke test is a collection of written tests that are performed on a system prior to being accepted for further testing. This is also known as a build verification test. This is a "shallow and wide" approach to the application. The tester "touches" all areas of the application without getting too deep".

Then what is sanity testing?
The test you explained is sanity testing. Smoke test is done in integration phase to verify that 2 or more programs/modules works well when integrated.
