Software testing plays a vital role in the software development life cycle as it involves a systematic evaluation of a software application to detect any defects or errors. Its primary objective is to guarantee that the software operates accurately, meets the specified requirements, and functions seamlessly in different scenarios. This comprehensive testing process encompasses both manual examination and the utilization of automated tools to verify the software's reliability, functionality, and performance. Ultimately, it contributes to the delivery of top-notch software products that are of high quality and free from errors.
