The artifacts that are produced during the testing process which are required to plan, design, and execute tests is called Testware.
Testware includes documentation, scripts, inputs, expected results, set-up and clear-up procedures, files, databases, environment, and any additional software or utilities used in testing. Generally, Testware is also called as Testing Tools.
Also, it is a good practice that testware should be placed under the control of a configuration management tool and save properly.
In two ways, testware is different from general softwares:
- Developed by testers for a specific purpose
- It has different metrics for quality and different users
