In this process, testers execute the test cases and generate the reports manually without using any automation tools.
Automation Testing: Automation testing is the process of testing the software using an automation tools to find the defects. In this process, testers execute the test scripts and generate the test results automatically by using automation tools. Some of the famous automation testing tools for functional testing are QTP/UFT and Selenium.
