From the Back Cover
Testing plays a vital role in the development of quality software. However, many organizations have ill-defined testing processes, so many testers have to work with little guidance and have to learn their craft the hard way. This book is designed to help the inexperienced tester to make intelligent choices and maximize the effectiveness of tests, even when faced with incomplete or contradictory requirements.
Introducing Software Testing
will enable you to
- Learn a step-by-step approach to testing, focusing on core functionality
- Identify missing information and perform useful testing when working with deficient requirements
- Explore various documentation formats and shortcuts for recording test cases
- Develop strategies for designing tests at both system and unit levels
- Apply testing techniques to object-oriented and web-based applications.
By applying risk analysis and other prioritization schemes, software developers and testers can select the most relevant tests. The ideas and examples provided help to transform product information into test cases and progress towards a more rigorous testing environment.
