  • Hi,

    Although this might turn into a discussion about preferences, here goes.

    Integration tests are usually done by developers.
    User acceptance testing is done by users (as it states in the name). A tester or test coordinator should oversee these tests.

    However, I would be in favor of a more multidisciplinary approach where all disciplines are involved in getting the best result together.

    Hope this helps.

  • Generally UAT is conducted by business users who actually test the system from user's perspective. So those who test UAT should come prepared before hand so that they have a plan before they test the system.

    SIT is done basically by system testers who tests the system as a whole integration of the system.

    Developers can be involved in SIT but not much as they don't have proper access to the whole system that may involve several services or layers.

    Have a look at this article that explains some differences.
