Adhoc Testing with Example

What is Adhoc Testing?
Adhoc testing is a type of software testing in which testing the application is random. ad hoc testing is performed once the tester is done with formal testing.
 Ad -hoc testing is defined as "Testing the application randomly without referring any kind of formal document like test scenarios, test cases. adhoc testing is also called informal testing.

The main aim of doing Adhoc testing is to break the application and increase the test coverage and find the defect by random clicking.  also, increase the defect count somehow.

Why we Should do the Adhoc Testing?
suppose the development team develops the application according to the customer requirement and testing also tests the application by following the CRS (customer Requirement Specification ) document. when the application reaches the end-user and user might use the application randomly and get exposed to the bug. To avoid that testing team does random testing (Adhoc testing).

When to Perform the Adhoc Testing?
  • When the Product has become stable.
  • When all kinds of testing are over.
  • Ad hoc testing can also be conducted in the middle of the software development.
  • Adhoc testing is executed after the formal testing completion.
Who performs the Adhoc Testing?
Generally, Adhoc testing is performed by the independent testing team who has a strong knowledge of the software under test.

Types of Adhoc Testing
There are two types of Adhoc testing.
  1. Pair Testing
  2. buddy Testing
1. Pair Testing
Pair testing is a type of Adhoc testing in which the member of the development team and the testing team sit together and work on the same module .when the development team completes unit testing then pair testing comes into the picture. pair testing helps the tester develop a better test case.

2-Buddy Testing
Buddy testing is also a type of Adhoc testing in which two-member (testers) from the testing team sit together and work on the same module with the same test setup. this testing helps to find more defects in the same module.

Advantages of Adhoc Testing :
Here important Adhoc testing advantage given ...

  • Adhoc testing helps the tester to find out the defects which are not countered in conventional testing.
  • Ad hoc testing helps the tester to break the application.


Point to Remember about Adhoc Testing.
  • Testing the application randomly without referring to any kind of formal document like test scenarios, and test cases are called Adhoc testing.
  • To increase the test coverage we do Adhoc testing.
  • To increase the defect count we do the Adhoc testing.
  • To break the application we do Adhoc testing.
  • The advantage of doing ad-hoc testing is to check for the completeness of testing and find out the defect which is not planned.
