    - Whenever a new software is launched, different types of testing are carried out in order to go through the whole software.

    - Software testing is an integral part of the software development process.

    - It is done so as to remove the bugs from the software and to make sure that the software runs properly.

    Acceptance Testing
    - It consists of two parts: Alpha testing and Beta testing.

    - Alpha testing also consists of an pre-alpha phase.

    - During the pre-alpha phase analysis of requirements and development of the software is provided.

    - As soon as the the development is effected alpha testing begins.

    - After alpha testing beta testing is carried out.

    - Beta testing means the software is finally assessed by the end user.

    Alpha testing
    - It involves the black box and white box testing techniques.

    - Some of its features are:
    1. The outside users are not involved while this testing.
    2. The developers are involved.
    3. White and Black box testing practices are used.

    Beta testing
    - This is considered as the last step in testing.

    - The software is delivered to the end users and they check the functionality of the software.

    - Some of its features are:
    1. The outside users are involved.
    2. The black box practices are used.
