What are context-driven tests?
Context-driven testing is a specific type of software testing that takes into account use of the product in the field or in a performance or production environment. It is a way for developers to assess software as it is being built, check for bugs, and tweak its design before final release.
Contextual testing is what experts would call a 'philosophy' of testing, something that is done along with other types of conceptual testing in agile software development. For example, some skilled in the art would say that some more abstract problems with user interfaces or user-friendly (or user-friendly) processes would be part of contextual testing, rather than part of a more technical type of software test. In other words, in contextual testing, developers examine how users are actually using software and whether this process is working well, rather than looking for specific instances of code violations in syntax or functional language.
The type of contextual testing is different from other types of software testing, which are by definition more technical. For example, black box testing and white box testing are two software testing methods that differ in whether or not developers look at the internal design of a product. Other types of tests, such as unit tests and integration tests, have to do with whether developers are testing individual code modules or connected modules that form a functional component of a software program.
