Manual Testing

Applies to TestComplete 15.65, last modified on July 17, 2024
The manual testing functionality is deprecated. Do not use it for creating new tests. It will be removed in a future TestComplete release.

Manual testing is performed by the tester who carries out all the actions on the tested application manually, step by step and indicates whether a particular step was accomplished successfully or whether it failed. Manual testing is always a part of any testing effort. It is especially useful in the initial phase of software development, when the software and its user interface are not stable enough, and beginning the automation does not make sense.
