Abstract -
Software testing is part of the software development which ensures software functions in the intended way of the client. Software testing depends on how well we are practicing the principles of software testing currently. Formation of testing in Modern era is becoming popular day by day. Therefore, software testing engineers are trying to efficiently convert the manual test effort into automation test report. This challenge is difficult due to various factors which we are presenting in this paper. This paper is a novel afford to get software testing practitioners regarding path they follow to overcome the challenges of software testing. Our paper is a sincere advice to envision the future of software testing which is highly dependent on current software testing practices.
