testbed includes test cases and test environments?[edit]

I need to know whether test bed also includes test cases or not and also is there any difference between test bed and test environment?

Answer to question 1. Test bed may not includes test cases. Because some time we may have to conduct testing without test cases, but testing is not possible without test bed.

Answer to question 2. Test bed and test environment are the same. It consists of hardware, network topology, Operating System, configuration of the system and test data. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 206.195.193.254 (talk) 04:43, August 23, 2007 (UTC)

Software Test Beds[edit]

Software test beds are also very commonly referred to as sandboxes. Perhaps a link to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandbox_%28software_development%29

may be appropriate.

The term is also used for other testing-like areas (such as video games, editors, etc.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.38.1.1 (talk) 21:40, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
