A Complete Guide To Monkey Testing

Monkey testing in software testing is an approach wherein the tester applies random inputs to the application to verify its capabilities. This is a functional black-box testing method that is done when there is insufficient time to write and execute tests.

Also called stochastic testing, monkey testing can be done for mobile, web, and desktop applications. It is often implemented as random and automated unit tests, which makes it advantageous, as it can quickly estimate software reliability.
