Too Long; Didn't Read

What is it All About? As a testing engineer, you've probably heard of such types of testing as smoke, sanity, re-test and regression testing. It is quite possible that many of these types are used by you on a daily basis. In this article, I would like to clarify and explain the difference between these types of testing and try to figure out, draw boundaries (albeit conditional) where one type of testing ends and another begins. For beginners in testing (and even experienced testers), separating these concepts can be difficult. And in fact, how to distinguish where sanity testing begins and smoke ends? How much do we need to limit the verification of a part of the functionality of the system or its components to call it "smoke" testing?
