Software testing is the process used to measure the quality of developed software. Software testing, depending on the testing method employed, can be implemented at any time in the development process. Traditionally most of the test effort occurs after the requirements have been defined and the coding process has been completed, but in the Agile approaches most of the test effort is on-going. As such, the methodology of the test is governed by the chosen software development methodology.
Keyword-driven testing, also known as table-driven testing or action-word testing, is a software testing methodology for automated testing that separates the test creation process into two distinct stages: a planning stage, and an implementation stage. ...More

Exploratory testing: Cem Kaner, who coined the term in 1983, now defines exploratory testing as "a style of software testing that emphasizes the personal freedom and responsibility of the individual tester to continually optimize the quality of his/her work by treating test-related learning, test design, test execution, and test result interpretation as mutually supportive activities that run in parallel throughout the project."

- "Program testing can be a very effective way to show the presence of bugs, but it is hopelessly inadequate for showing their absence." -- Edsger Dijkstra
- "Beware of bugs in the above code; I have proved it correct, not tried it." -- Donald Knuth
- "Given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow." -- Linus's Law according to Eric S. Raymond
- "If it ain't broke, you are not trying hard enough."
- "Quality is free, but only to those who are willing to pay heavily for it."
