When test engineers perform web site testing, desktop testing or mobile testing, they expect to find many defects. It is not because they consider the system to be bad or the developers incompetent, but because such state of mind helps to be effective during software testing.

This attitude is always useful for manual testing. The main rule of a tester says that a defect-free application does not exist.

But, as a rule, software bugs are not expected to be found during automated regression testing. Regression tests are created so that they can easily pass. They are performed to make sure that the detected errors have been corrected, and the system works fine. Any automated tests are expected to run without problems.

So, One of the Differences Between Manual and Automated Testing is That:

  • in course of manual testing various serious defects of the system are expected to be discovered;
  • automated testing is expected to pass with no trouble, it is aimed to prove that the application operates properly.

Errors are found both during manual and automated testing. But it is wise to remember this peculiarity of the approach to each of them. The opposite approaches ultimately focus on the same result – release of a high-quality application.
