What is end-to-end testing?
End-to-end testing is the practice of evaluating all aspects of an application as it will be used by real-world users. End-to-end testing occurs after integration testing and system integration testing which determine that all the various components of a software system work correctly together. Because enterprise IT landscapes are highly complex and interconnected with other systems, end-to-end testing is necessary to ensure a complete system or application interacts correctly with different dependent systems and apps from start to finish for a core enterprise business process.
What are the benefits of end-to-end testing?
End-to-end testing determines whether an application’s dependencies are functioning and whether it communicates with other hardware, databases, applications, and systems as required. As a result, end-to-end testing measures the overall performance of an application and may catch errors and issues that other tests cannot.
What is end-to-end testing vs. system testing?
End-to-end testing is sometimes confused with system testing. A system test checks a specific software system and its functionality to determine whether an application meets the required specifications. An end-to-end test checks both the application and the systems to which it is connected, ensuring that the behavioral flow of the software works as intended.
