The different phases of a software testing process are the following:

  • Requirement analysis (understanding the requirements and identifying the requirements to be tested)
  • Testi planning (defining the test strategy)
  • Test case development (defining and developing the test cases)
  • Environment setup (setting up hardware and software for executing test cases)
  • Test execution (code execution and comparing the actual and expected results)
  • Test cycle closure (calling out a meeting to evaluate the completion of the test cycle)
