Difference between "functionalities" and "features" of

Posted 25 September 2013 - 02:35 AM

Hey guys,

I am studing economics in Basel (Switzerland) and I am writing on a housework about Extreme Programming.
During my research I found many times the expressions "features" and "functionalities" and in my language there is a difference between them. "features" is in my language like "attributes". And in some sources when they talk about testing features for me testing functionalities makes more sense.

So to understand my topic better I would be glad if you could tell me if there is a difference or not and if yes, what the difference between these words are in the context of software development. :)

Greetings from Switzerland,

Typically I look at it like this.. Features are things your app does, performs, and is expressed when interacting with a user. Basically what a salesman hawks when peddling your product. Functionality is how things are implemented - what you, the developer, implement.
