Hello @chiragtakkar5 ,

Component testing is a type of software testing in which individual components of a system are examined using independent test cases to evaluate their behavior when combined with other modules. This form of testing is carried out throughout the development lifecycle and can result in benefits such as faster time-to-market and increased product stability. Static analysis, runtime checks, integration tests, and performance evaluations are examples of techniques.

After going through these you will get an overall idea.

Hey @chiragtakkar5 ,
AEM component testing is a process of testing individual AEM components to ensure they are functioning correctly and as expected. 

This article pretty much covers the whole process of it:

Certainly.

In very simple terms, AEM Component testing (also called Unit Testing )primarily focuses on testing the individual components of an AEM application. This is done through Mockito/Junit/AEMComponentTesting.

 

Whereas, UI testing deals with the functional part of the component and the page, where we test whether the component is behaving/rendering as it is supposed to do, based on different authored values or style systems.
