Regression Testing or Re testing?
Regression testing is the process to ensure the data are working properly with the existing software. The main aim is to fix the bugs and to make sure the problems are solved.
Regression testing is acting as the control measure for maintaining the quality of the product with its specified requirements and the code. People often get confused over difference between regression testing and re testing.
Verifying the application works by changing the code to test whether the product needs any enhancement methods to be used. Few cases the end user rise the request to change the methodological aspects through the incremental programming that implies more and meet the project goals.

Importance of Regression Testing:
Regression testing plays a major role in the success of any software development application.
The simple reason being: Any soft
ware application needs repairs (meaning Changes).. enhancements, etc.. i.e when ever there is a small or big change in the existing software product/application, then there is a chance that the dependent module / program may gets effected. In order to ensure that the software is not disturbed or mal functioned, because of the changes done, we need to do regression testing.
I.e regression testing is a testing done to the entire system after any modification..
