Software testing consists of a number of different types of tests. These can easily be confused due to their resemblance and seemingly overlapping purposes.
Regression testing is the process of checking a software system for bugs or regressions that have occurred in existing code after introducing new code.
Although regression testing is an essential part of the testing process, some software development teams choose to only run tests on specific code changes, under the assumption that if the new part of the software works, then the rest of it will as well.
Regression testing is a core part of quality assurance and software testing. This type of testing is key to ensuring a great end-user experience. Yet, some testers rush the process or skip it entirely because it is time-consuming.
