Test Environment

Can any one help me out to find the difference between the test server and staging server. Can we perform functionality testing and user acceptance testing int the same environment?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Functionality and user acceptance testing can be performed in whatever environment you choose as long as the environment is used exclusively for one purpose at a time. We generally use four environments (development, test, user acceptance, and production). Development and test are used by the application developers to develop and test the application, while the user acceptance environment is used by business analysts to perform functional (system) testing followed by end-user acceptance testing then deployment to production. Sometimes an environment can be temporarily used for other purposes, for example the test environment can be used for functional testing and the user acceptance environment can be used for performance testing. The key is to choose a purpose for an environment and communicate this to everyone so that the environment can be isolated to allow proper testing without conflicts.

    Test Server - is normally where you would be able to make what ever changes you want.... Staging server - is normally the server that you put your tested config on for user acceptance. If you dont mind the possability that some thing can work one minute and then not (because someone else is playing in the environment) then the same environment is acceptable. But this would be all eggs one basket
