MANUAL TESTING | Types of Testing: Alpha Testing & Beta Testing.


In Acceptance Testing, we have got 
Alpha Testing and Beta Testing.



What is alpha testing & Beta Testing?

There are two types of Servers in the companies. We already know Production Server. Production Server is Used by Customers, where Real business is happening.  

Companies have Dedicated Servers called as UAT (User Acceptance Testing) Servers. In UAT Servers Dummy Business is happening for the purpose of testing.

Now, why so? 

⇒ If you're testing the software in production server, end users are doing acceptance testing in production Servers i.e. Beta Testing.

Now talking About Beta, You may come across the Beta Release of Google products. They release the product or update as a Beta release in a particular Area. That's because they can get feedback to improve. and their beta testing doesn't harm us in any manner. when they release this product they show the message saying this is Beta release plz if you found any plz let us know. This feedback goes to Developers. 

But, For Banking application, they cant test in Production Servers As Beta Testing. For money transaction Always Alpha testing is done in UAT Servers. Because they are very Critical. In alpha Testing, Transaction is Dummy. These Testing are done by End Users. UAT Servers are excisable within companies only. Beta servers are globally accessible.



Alpha Testing:
Here Few End Users Will start using the software in UAT Servers to find Out Does the software supports, business scenarios or not.
Example - Banking Applications and etc.


Beta Testing:

Here few End Users, well start using the software in production server to find out does the software supports all the required business scenarios or not.


Example - Google maps, google plus, Whatsapp, Firefox, Microsoft etc.
