The Software Testing Life Cycle, (STLC), is the road map to a product success. QALAB consists of a set of phases that define what testing activities to do and when to do them. It also enables communication and synchronization between the various groups that have input to the overall testing process.
In the best of worlds the STLC parallels the Software Development Life Cycle, coordinating activities, thus providing the vehicle for a close working relationship between testing and development departments.

2. TEST DESIGN
3. TEST IMPLEMENTATION (IN CASE OF AUTOMATION TESTING)
4. TEST EXECUTION & DEFECT REPORTING

Default What is Software Testing Life Cycle (STLC) ?

Software testing life cycle comprises of many testing related activities that will be carried out prior to development, during development and post development. Software testing life cycle helps in identifying what all test activities to be carried out and when to accomplish the testing activities. At every stage of development there will be a testing activity. There will not be a standardized Testing life cycle, different organization will be having different testing process, but every organization involved in Software business development business will be having a testing life cycle. In this article we will be discussing in detail about the different phases in STLC.

Software testing life cycle consists of 7 phases: Planning, Analysis, Design, Creation and Verification, Execution, Final Testing, Actions after implementation.
