9780130912947: Rapid Testing (Software Quality Institute)

Today, software has to be developed more quickly than ever -- at higher quality than ever. Testing is more important than ever -- but it must be performed at breakneck speed. Rapid Testing examines every aspect of software testing, identifying methods, tools, tips, and techniques that accelerate testing while at the same time improving software quality. Its proven solutions are supported with practical examples, templates, and checklists that can be used to jumpstart any testing process. Rapid Testing presents a systematic approach to aggressively rooting out bugs early in the development lifecycle, and streamlining every stage of the testing process: planning, design, execution, verification, validation, and reporting. The book's extensive examples, best practices, and templates make it an ideal resource and quick reference for everyone with testing and software quality responsibilities.

From the Back Cover:

Faster testing for faster time-to-market.

  • Accelerated testing strategies to beat the competition
  • Tips for successfully integrating testing into a fast-track development strategy
  • Templates for creating your own testing documentation instantly

The breakneck pace and fierce competition in today's software market demand that products get to market as quickly as possible. The challenge of maintaining quality while meeting deadlines leads to new strategies for testing through the development process. While no software is flawless, the goal of rapid testing is to identify major bugs early in the development process, requiring integration of test planning, execution, and reporting throughout the life cycle.

Rapid Testing offers a three-part approach to help you streamline your testing process and increase quality without sacrificing time:

  • principles and processes of rapid testing
  • techniques, tips, and real-life examples
  • a complete set of sample test documentation

With an emphasis on speed and integration, Rapid Testing covers the entire testing life cycle, including:

  • Planning and test case design and development
  • Bug tracking and reporting
  • Verification and validation techniques
  • Testing metrics and test resource estimation
  • Measurement, reporting, documentation, and evaluation

Conveniently organized for handy reference, Rapid Testing is an ideal guide for test engineers and managers, as well as other developers and managers involved in the testing process.
