Next commonly ask interview question in any software testing interview is “What is difference between Regression Testing and Retesting?” Regression testing and Retesting have different objectives and priorities, they equally important for project’s success.

Re-Testing: After a defect is detected and fixed, the software should be retested to confirm that the original defect has been successfully removed. This is called Confirmation Testing or Re-Testing

Regression testing: Testing your software application when it undergoes a code change to ensure that the new code has not affected other parts of the software.

Testing for bug defects fixes is called Re-Testing.
Carried out manually often.
Most of the time is independent of regression

Data Driven Testing:

Testing with different test data multiple number of times is called Data Driven Testing.
Carried out using Automation tools often.
Most of the time part of regression testing.
