Component (module) testing checks the functionality and searches for bugs in some parts of the application that are available and can be tested separately (program module, objects, classes, functions, etc.). The usual component (module) testing is performed by invoking the code that should be tested. All detected defects are fixed in the code without its description in the bug tracking system.
Test First Approach
One of the most effective approaches of performing module testing is the preparation of automated testing services before the core encoding of the software. This is called “test driven development” or “test first approach”. The development process is performed till the moment all the test would be successfully performed.
