What is the difference between feature testing and functionality testing?



  • Recently I happened to be in an interview where I was asked to explain feature testing and functional testing. Even after looking up so many references I am unable to find a convincing explanation ‒ can anyone explain?



  • There are lots of kinds of testing, and they vary by company and organization. Different people use different terms. There is no special value in any particular set of terms; you just need to know what the speaker means when they use them.

    Frankly, I think it was a stupid question, or perhaps even a trick question to see how you deal with ambiguity. Whether a candidate happens to know how the interviewer happens to define a set of ambiguous terms has no bearing on job performance. I hope the rest of the interview was better than that.
