As a tester, you may think that ‘Designing Test cases is challenging enough, then why bother about something as trivial as Test Data’. The purpose of this tutorial is to introduce you to Test Data, its importance and give practical tips and tricks to generate test data quickly. So, let’s Begin!
What is Test Data in Software Testing?
Test Data in Software Testing is the input given to a software program during test execution. It represents data that affects or affected by software execution while testing. Test data is used for both positive testing to verify that functions produce expected results for given inputs and for negative testing to test software ability to handle unusual, exceptional or unexpected inputs.
