What Is Continuous Testing?

Conventional software testing has often meant the separate, manual, “end-to-end” exercise human specialists perform toward the end of a development cycle, largely after developers finish all or most of their work. Continuous testing (CT) is a contrast in nearly every aspect. Generally, CT is automated, happens as a result of programmer actions, occurs througout the development cycle, and returns results to programming staff through a dedicated and automated channel.
