I searched the difference on google. But could'nt find any intuitive explanation for both the terms. Can someone give me the main differences between the two in software testing.
Thanks in advance.

Wikipedia: Scaffolding is a project generation technique supported by various tools.
In your examples, I don't believe the term 'scaffolding' refers to two different things, but instead is being used as a spectrum.
The difference is between the adjectives generic and specific.
Specific is something clearly defined or identified, whereas
generic applies to a group of things and is the exact opposite of 'specific'.
So, in testing terms, does the scaffolding serve a generic purpose or a more specific one?
