Difference between smoke test and build acceptance test?

  1. Default Difference between smoke test and build acceptance test?

    Hi all,

    Can you explain the difference between smoke test and build
    acceptance test? Are they synonymous?

    Thanks and Regards,

    Peter

    User Acceptance Tests
    This is a suite of tests that demonstrates to the client (the user)
    that the object of the testing is able to accomplish the tasks it was
    designed for, at least in a minimum way.

    Smoke tests
    It is a small (and usually fast in time) subset of tests executed over
    the product just to ensure that it works in a first instance. Usually,
    a smoke test is executed just after a build. If the smoke test is not
    passed, the QA team should be capable of rejecting this version of the
    product.

    Hope this be helpful

    I think they are synonymous. Another term you will see is basic sanity test. It is a very short and quick suite of tests (maybe only 1 or 2 tests) that verify that the build was good, the system is stable and that it can be used for further development and testing efforts.
