End to end testing

Definition

End-to-end testing is the process of testing transactions or business level products as they pass right through the computer systems. Thus this generally ensures that all aspects of the business are supported by the systems under test.

This ensures that the overall process flows as expected, that is that system components integrate together correctly and that the right information is passed between them.

The process may fail and there could be omissions in the process. Dependencies may not have been identified and incorrect information could be passed between system components and systems. The software may work, but the overall process does not (for example, people order goods, but they are never delivered).

This is also known as end2end testing, end 2 end testing and End-End testing.
