I very much dislike the word end to end testing,
It means different things to different people, instead I use testing the ‘user journey’…
End to end can mean:
1. From the UI to the DB level and back (ends of the tech stack)
2. Can mean a user story executed from the UI
3. A feature (group of stories) demo over the UI
4. The end user’s complete journey which cuts across multiple applications
For me, only no. 4 is end to end, but it’s so hard to explain to certain people.
I find testing the ‘user journey’ much easier to get across to the audience.
And this part of testing is the most neglected, where a user flow is going through multiple systems,
Each team’s feels responsible from the start and end of their product only..
