What is Acceptance Testing?

Acceptance Testing is a type of software testing. It is also commonly known as User Acceptance Testing (UAT).

Acceptance Testing defines a level of testing where a system is tested for acceptability. Basically, it tests to see whether or not the system is compliant with the business requirements and whether or not it will be accepted by the general public in the current form.

It tests the system to see whether or not it is compliant for user needs and requirements, because if it does not, then the users might just reject the product.
