During the software development process, errors are inevitably introduced and some of them are even amplified as a project progresses. To detect these errors so that they can be removed, we need to test the software.
The success of testing depends on the test cases used. Considering that most software projects are delivered in a limited time span using fixed resources, effective test cases must be used to optimize the available resources. In addition, it is important to plan for testing, otherwise it is likely to be skipped or performed in a haphazard fashion.
Software Testing Course includes:
- An Introduction to Software Testing
- Test Case Design Techniques
- Software Testing Strategies
Software testing can be stated as the process of validating and verifying that a software program/application/product:
- meets the requirements that guided its design and development;
- works as expected;
- Can be implemented with the same characteristics.
- satisfies the needs of stakeholders
Software testing, depending on the testing method employed, can be implemented at any time in the development process. Traditionally most of the test effort occurs after the requirements have been defined and the coding process has been completed, but in the agile approaches most of the test effort is on-going. As such, the methodology of the test is governed by the chosen software development methodology.
Different software development models will focus the test effort at different points in the development process. Newer development models, such as agile often employ and place an increased portion of the testing in the hands of the developer, before it reaches a formal team of testers. In a more traditional model, most of the test execution occurs after the requirements have been defined and the coding process has been completed.
This software testing course has been co-authored by the internationally recognized consultant and authority on software engineering—Dr. Roger S. Pressman.
This software testing course will enable you to:
- Explain the importance, objectives, principles, and limitations of software testing.
- Explain the need for test case design, two broad approaches for it, and the commonly used white-box and black-box techniques for designing test cases.
- Explain the aspects involved in planning for software testing and in selecting the test strategy for a software project.
