Differences Between Testing And Debugging In Programming Of Software Application by soccerepe: 12:20pm On Jul 30, 2018
Debugging in Programming is A Process of extracting Errors from an Application Software, But Testing is a Process of Clarifying that an Application Is Working as Intended.

In Programming Testing is Very Complicated and Difficult, Testing is Not only about Clarifying that an Application Software Works as Intended.
During Projects That are Large, Testing Can be separated into Many kinds, This different Kinds Jointly have Distinct Goals.

Now, During Projects that are smaller, Debugging and Testing Can be Done Concurrently.
The Purpose of Testing in Programming of Application Software is to Locate Loop. Testing in Programming is also Aimed to Clarify that a Particular Software has Achieved its Function and Reasons of Making During a Particular Level.

The Level in Testing is always Advocated at 100% or Lower Since Achieving the Test is Uncharacteristily Not Difficult to Achieve.
In Programming of Application Software, Testing is Always Done Manually, While on Big Projects It is always Automated.

Now Debugging In Programming of Application software. Debugging is mostly Used to Locate Loops and Bugs in a Software Application.

The Process of Debugging in Programming is manually Done. Debugging is also Done Once for Every Bug Detected.
Bug Sometimes Is what Differentiates the Job of Software from What it is Primarily Set to Do and What it is Programmed to Do.

In any way, it is logical, Debugging of Software Application is set at a Specialized Program. This specialized Program Locate Bugs. Bugs Located are referred as Debuggers.

It is a very sad day for the Software profession.


This is a very silly and dumb write up.

bugs are debuggers ? are you ok ?

soccerepe:

What testing is locating loop ? Do you know you can be prosecuted for this ?

Too many rubbish in 1 sentence.


What are you comparing in DEBUGGING and TESTING ?

Ummm OP what do u mean by " the purpose or testing is to locate loop?"

And also testing and debugging work hand in hand .

PS is this write up yours?

This article is very confusing, you are instantiating exceptions on beginners heads

Testing is the a process of finding defects on a program. eg a tester provide an input to the program and see what output the system will provide. This process can be done while programming or after(based on SDCL).

Debugging is the process of analyzing program sequence, data and initializations step by step according to the execution sequence to detect an error. this is very helpful in detecting logical error which is very difficult for compiler.

Lol Op ended up confusing newbies.

Testing is fundamentally a processing of checking if the system is working as expected while debugging is simply the activity performed by developers to fix bug found in the system.

In other words, testing is the process of detecting error in software while debugging is the process of removing that error.
