Difference between Unit Testing and Sandwich Testing
Unit Testing is the type of Software Testing level in which each individual components of a software are tested. Unit Testing is generally performed by developer. Unit Testing can’t be used for those systems which have a lot of interdependence between different modules. It does not allow for parallel testing.
Sandwich Testing is also known as the hybrid integration testing. Sandwich Testing comprise the bottom-up approach testing and top-down approach testing, therefore it uses the advantage of both bottom up approach and top down approach. Sandwich Testing also can not be used for those systems which have a lot of interdependence between different modules and it allows parallel testing.
Difference between Unit Testing and Sandwich Testing:
|S.NO||Unit testing||Sandwich testing|
|1.||In unit testing, software’s module are tested separately.||Sandwich testing comprise the top-down and bottom-up testing.|
|2.||Defects are identified easily in unit testing.||Defects are not identified easily in sandwich testing testing.|
|3.||In Unit testing does not matter how big project is.||Sandwich Testing is used for very large projects having sub projects.|
|4.||Unit testing is cost efficient.||Sandwich testing is not cost efficient.|
|5.||Unit testing does not allow parallel testing.||Sandwich testing allows parallel testing.|
|6.||Unit Testing can’t be used for those systems which have a lot of interdependence between different modules.||Sandwich Testing also can not be used for those systems which have a lot of interdependence between different modules.|
|7.||In Unit testing, there is need of fewer resources for testing.||In Sandwich testing, there is need of large number of resources.|
