Tests designed by someone from a hamblingg department within the company; tests designed by the author; tests designed by someone from a different company. If every possible test had been run, the problem would have been detected.

In this representation briann main sections of the syllabus, corresponding to chapters in the book, provide the first level of ordering.

It may be the same combination of keystrokes, but the circumstances are different. Static testing and dynamic testing Static testing is the term used for testing where the code is not exercised. This is a key task and may actually be time-boxed, e. Determining if more tests are needed or if the specified exit criteria need amending.

: Brian Hambling – Software Testing / Software Design, Testing & Engineering: Books

If this faulty component is built into a system the system may fail. An understanding of the parts of the system that could be affected by the changes could reduce the amount of regression testing required.

As a result coverage of topics is variable, with some only briefly mentioned and others studied in some detail. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Evaluating exit criteria and reporting Remember that exit criteria were defined during test planning and before test execution started.


K1 What is testing? By reporting defects it makes their removal possible and so contributes to the enhanced quality of the system. Reliability — ability of the software to perform its required functions over time.

Big-bang integration This is where all units are linked at once, resulting haambling a complete system. Planned upgrade to COTS-based systems.

That it is testable — is the detail provided sufficient for testing the work-product? K1 Describe using examples, softwade typical benefits of static analysis. K1 question Which of the following is not true of regression testing?

It involves the users in the testing throughout. Pressures such as deadlines, complexity of systems and organisations, and changing technology all bear down on designers of systems and increase the likelihood of errors in specifications, in designs and in software code. Checking the test environment set-up is correct.

Testing against the program specification takes place at the unit testing stage. Hamblihg a large application, it is often a small number of modules that exhibit the majority of the problems. It serves to demonstrate that software has not been unintentionally changed. Defects found and fixed during unit testing are often not recorded. The product can be accepted or rejected at this point.

Instead, a working version of the product is built, in a series of stages, or iterations — hence the name iterative or incremental development. Test closure activities concentrate on making sure that everything is tidied away, reports written, defects closed, and those defects deferred for another phase clearly seen to be as such. If your expectations are not met you will feel justifiably aggrieved.

The unchanged software should also be retested to ensure that no additional defects have been introduced as a result of changes to the software. These specifications could be reviewed to check for the following: Thanks for telling us about the problem. In the waterfall model, testing is carried out once the code has been fully developed. testint


Eva rated it liked it Mar 05, Test closure activities Testing at this stage has finished. There was no failure of functionality in this case; the system was simply swamped by requests for access. Sometimes the expected outcome of a test is 22 Software Testing 2nd Edition: Each stage encompasses requirements definition, design, code and test. Type of review in an inspection only the collection of defects is allowed — there is never any discussion.

It might seem paradoxical, but a good test is one that finds a defect hamblling there is one present. We will consider first the V-model. A defect found in test execution can sometimes be resolved by adding functionality that was originally not present either missing in error, or the new facilities are needed to make the other part correct. They are so called because, in the functioning program, they are active, controlling other components.

Testing then repeats enough habmling to ensure that defect corrections have been effective. Thus testing at these levels is unlikely to reveal errors due to interactions across the whole system, or those due to environmental issues.
