What is Bottom Up Testing?

Each component at lower hierarchy is tested individually and then the components that rely upon these components are tested.

Bottom Up Testing in Test Life Cycle

The order of Integration by Top-down approach will be:

4,2
5,2
6,3
7,3
2,1
3,1

Testing Approach :

+ Firstly, Test 4,5,6,7 individually using drivers.
+ Test 2 such that it calls 4 and 5 separately. If an error occurs we know that the problem is in one of the modules.
+ Test 1 such that it calls 3 and If an error occurs we know that the problem is in 3 or in the interface between 1 and 3

Though Top level components are the most important, yet tested last using this strategy. In Bottom-up approach, the Components 2 and 3 are replaced by drivers while testing components 4,5,6,7. They are generally more complex than stubs.
