Katie is conducting testing of a new application and recently completed unit testing. She would now like to run a series of tests designed to confirm that the tested units will work together properly. What type of software testing should Katie run next?
A. Integration testing
B. Functional testing
C. Design testing
D. Acceptance testing
Correct Answer: A
Integration testing occurs after unit testing and is designed to confirm that units of code will work together properly. Functional testing takes place upon the conclusion of requirements development, while design testing occurs after the design is complete. Both functional and design testing should be completed before, not after, unit testing. Acceptance testing occurs as the next step after successful integration testing.
