What is the difference between testing and debugging ?

Dont mix testing with debugging ...
Testing is to find errors or bugs.
Debugging is to remove errors or bugs

Testing is the process of executing a program or system with the aim of findings errors.
Correcting these errors (found during testing) is degugging

Correct me if i m wrong ....

Software testing is the process used to assess the quality of computer software. Software testing is an empirical technical investigation conducted to provide stakeholders with information about the quality of the product or service under test[1] , with respect to the context in which it is intended to operate. Debugging is a methodical process of finding and reducing the number of bugs, or defects, in a computer program or a piece of electronic hardware thus making it behave as expected.
