Smoke Testing is performed after software build to make sure that the critical functionalities of the program is working fine. It is executed “before” any detailed functional or regression tests are executed on the software build. The purpose is to reject a badly broken application, so that the QA team does not waste time installing and testing the software application.
In Smoke Testing, the test cases chosen cover the most important functionality or component of the system. The objective is not to perform exhaustive testing, but to verify that the critical functionalities of the system is working fine.
For Example a typical smoke test would be – Verify that the application launches successfully, check that the GUI is responsive etc.
