Nowadays organization whether they are small or big, depute specialist to check bugs, error in software and in products. But to get good and timely results there is a need to follow the process of testing carefully.
Make and implement good testing case plan by defining strategy, should maintain test record data to compare test results if there is any disparity in the test results and in actual results one needs to amend coding and correct the documents accordingly.
Testing of a product is required always, and this is very important too. According to different case studies here are the few points those can signify the importance of testing. In the year of 1999 a bug in software cost a loss of an army satellite which has the worth of $1.2 billion, this case is considering as the costliest loss in history.

Black box testing is known as functional testing and white box testing is known as structural testing or glass box testing. Black box testing where use to validate software and white box testing perform the task of verification.
There are some common testing which is used widely in most of the organization at a different level of product or software making.
1.Functional Testing: System testing, Unit Testing, Integration Testing, Smoke testing, Regression Testing, Beta/ Acceptance Testing, Sanity Testing, and interface Testing.
2.Non- Functional Testing: Load Testing, Stress Testing, Security Testing, Compatibility Testing, Performance Testing, Volume Testing, Security Testing, Install Testing, Compalinacxse Testing, Recovery Testing, Localize Testing, Usability Testing, and Reliability Testing.
To perform testing there is a need for testing tools, in the market, there are n-number of tools available to perform different-different testing. Here is the name of some well-known tools.
Behat, QF-Test, Watir, Spec-Flow,NUnit, CA Test Data Manager,SoapUI, Sauce Labs, Ranorex, CasperJS, AutoIt,GenRoacket, Katalon Studio, Bugwolf, BrowserStack, Smartbear SoapUI, Perfecto Continous Quality Lab, Concordion, Squash TM, Squash TA, Screenster,Flood.io, Test Rail, Robot Framework, Micro Focus Loadrunner, Nightwatch.JS, CodeFactor, Test Architect, Karate, xUnit.net, TestObject, Cobertura, Qualia Automation Studio, HTTP Master, Google Test, Cypress Io, Cross Browser Testing, Code Schene, Rational Integration Tester, Sahi, Codacy, Rational Quality Manager, Parasoft SOATest, Pytest, SonarQuabe, Jasmine, Locust, Tricentis Tosca, UFT, Parasoft Development Testing Platform, Parasoft Virtualization, Parasoft API Test, Parasoft Environment Manager, Mocha, Karma, Protector, Qunit, TestComplete, TestNG, CucumberJS, Appium, Jmeter, JUnit, Cucumber, Fitness, Selenium, Gatling,
