What is Computer-Aided Software Testing?
Computer-Aided Software Testing (CAST) is a method that automates testing software programs by using computer programs to analyze the code and find any potential defects or mistakes.
As software applications got increasingly complex, the job of identifying and fixing any defects became more difficult and increased by 70%. CAST was created to solve this issue by automating the testing process and using computers to detect possible flaws or errors in the code. This action improves the speed of the testing process, lowers the chance of identifying weaknesses, and allows developers to focus more on doing other things.
