In sanity testing we are checking application is ready for complete testing or not. If application is not ready then we willsend it back to development team and if application is ready,then we will go to next testing phase. We have to performfollowing tasks to check application is ready for testing or not:
Do installation and see that installation is happeningproperly.
Navigate through the application and see thatapplication is working properly.
Make sure application doesn’t have any issue regardinghang, crash, broken areas (like links), runtime errorsetc.
**Hot Fix- Quick fix of any bug by developer at any stage of testing is called Hot Fix
BVT (Build verification Testing)
we will perform completepossible testing on the application. We will perform throughtesting on the application. In this BVT check list** is also takeninto consideration and all major functionalities are checked.
**BVT check List: is a list of all major functionalities of theapplication as interest calculation, account updating, important validations, date updating etc.
