Software Testing - Destructive Testing
What is Destructive Testing?
Destructive testing is a testing technique in which the application is made to fail in an uncontrolled manner to test the robustness of the application and also to find the point of failure.
Destructive testing is performed under the most severe operating conditions and it is continued until the application breaks. The main purpose of destructive testing is not only to determine the design weaknesses if any which may not show up under normal working conditions but also to determine the service life of the product.
