The aim of any mobile testing, desktop testing or web site testing is to find as many defects as possible and this way improve the quality of an application.

Regression testing[1] is a very significant part of any software testing. It is performed after any corrections or modifications are made to the system. It is important to draw right conclusions from the results of regression testing.

If software bugs are discovered in functions that operated correctly before, it is necessary to check other functions that may influence the functions in which defects were discovered. When the errors are corrected it is needed to repeat regression testing of the parts in which the defects have been found and of the parts that have interrelations with the corrected areas.

A software testing company must determine what parts of the system contain the most errors and what parts are of high risk. It may be useful to perform additional test on those areas.

In case the developers claim that they have fixed the defects but test results show that the errors still occur, testers must find out the reason.

The Repeated Appearance of Software Bugs May Be Caused By:

If results of regression tests are analyzed correctly, appropriate conclusions are made and necessary procedures are performed, any web site testing, desktop testing or mobile application testing will meet the schedule and provide best results.
