What is regression testing in software testing used for? December 14, 2015 / Amit / 1 Comment Hi everyone, what is the purpose of regression testing? I see some projects do this type of testing, some not. Can you please share your experience in this type of testing?

Regression test is often a collection of test cases or test ideas to test the system as a whole. Since this is a big test and repeated test, regression test is normally executed by automation. Of course, you can have your people to run this test manually as long as you find fit. Re: I see some projects do this type of testing, some not >It’s hard to tell because it’s different from project to project, application to application. If you don’t find the need to do regression test, there’s no reason to do that.
