Monkey testing

I have read a number of articles in the past few days on what is commonly called “monkey testing”. The name comes from the old saying: “A thousand monkeys at a thousand typewriters will eventually type out the entire works of Shakespeare.”

I felt compelled to do a little research into the origins of the monkey saying and found the Infinite monkey theorem. From this I found the The Monkey Shakespeare Simulator which appears to be a better use for my spare CPU cycles than checking for extraterrestrial intelligence (grin).



  1. I think monkey testing is nothing but the testing for which we do not need any test case design.It is a sort of adhoc testing.

  2. What is Monkey Testing and where is it used?
    What is Smoke Testing and it’s need???

  4. I have made a new forum available that will take the place of this posting. I hope that everyone will find the interface much easier to use for asking and answering questions.
    You will need to register with the forum to use it. I was not able to automatically transfer over the users from this site.
    There is no easy way to integrate the questions asked and answered here into the forum. For that I apologize.
    I have locked out this message to prevent further postings.
