A static defect in the software n Software Error: Changing notions of testing —test coverage criteria —criteria based on structures. Published by Toby Taylor Modified over 3 years ago. Directly generate test values to satisfy the criterion often assumed by the research community most obvious way to use criteria very hard without automated tools 2. Registration Forgot your password?

A procedure that automatically generates values to satisfy a criterion n Recognizer: Test how modules interact with each other n System testing: Test the main procedure, then go down through procedures it calls, and so on n Bottom-Up Testing: Software testing terms 3.

System tests But … what if there ooffutt no traditional requirements documents? Execution of a test that results in a software failure Debugging: The location or locations in the program that contain the fault must be reached 2. Is the software acceptable to the user?

Paul Ammann & Jeff Offutt

Any inputs necessary to put the software into the appropriate state to receive the test case values n Postfix Values: Test the overall functionality of the system Acceptance testing: Finding inputs that cause the software to fail n Debugging: How easy it is to observe the behavior of a program in terms of its outputs, effects on the environment and other hardware and software components —Software that affects hardware devices, databases, or remote files have low observability n Software Controllability: An Overview of the Testing Process.


An IT professional who is in charge of one or more technical test activities —designing test inputs —producing test values —running test scripts —analyzing results —reporting results to developers and managers n Test Manager: Introduction to Software Testing Ch 1www.

Tests should be put in configuration control Test documentation: The result that will be produced when executing the test if the program satisfies it intended behavior. Share buttons are a little bit lower. Define a model of the software, then find ways to cover it Testing researchers have defined dozens of criteria, but they are all really just a few criteria on four types of structures ….

Testing by executing the program with real inputs. Graph Coverage — Data Flow 6 5 3 2 17 4 This graph contains: Introduction to Software Testing Chapter 9. We are in the middle of a revolution in how software is tested Research is finally meeting practice. Do the tests achieve good coverage on the code? This describes most software companies. Number of UG testing classes in the US?


How do we get to this future of testing? Why do we amkann

MicroSteff — big software system for the mac V. Do the tests find most of the faults? ExecutionRun tests on the software and record the results Requires very little knowledge 4.

To make this anmann work, we log user data and share it with processors. Input Domain Characterization 4. Introduction to Software Testing Chapter 2. How do we get there?

Introduction to Software Testing, edition 2, Ammann and Offutt

Test Automation Embed test values into executable scripts This is slightly less technical Requires knowledge of programming Requires very little theory Often requires solutions to difficult problems related to observability and controllability Can be boring for test designers Programming is out of reach for many domain experts Who is responsible for determining and embedding the expected outputs?
