Sobre este produto

Synopsis
Based on the needs of the educational community, and the software professional, this book takes a unique approach to teaching software testing. It introduces testing concepts that are managerial, technical, and process oriented, using the Testing Maturity Model (TMM) as a guiding framework. The TMM levels and goals support a structured presentation of fundamental and advanced test-related concepts to the reader. In this context, the interrelationships between theoretical, technical, and managerial concepts become more apparent. In addition, relationships between the testing process, maturity goals, and such key players as managers, testers and client groups are introduced.Topics and features: – Process/engineering-oriented text – Promotes the growth and value of software testing as a profession – Introduces both technical and managerial aspects of testing in a clear and precise style – Uses the TMM framework to introduce testing concepts in a systemmatic, evolutionary way to faciliate understanding – Describes the role of testing tools and measurements, and how to integrate them into the testing process Graduate students and industry professionals will benefit from the book, which is designed for a graduate course in software testing, software quality assurance, or software validation and verification Moreover, the number of universities with graduate courses that cover this material will grow, given the evoluation in software development as an engineering discipline and the creation of degree programs in software engineering. Software testing is rapidly evolving as a critical sub-discipline of software engineering. The industry needs professionals educated in the modern methods and tools of software testing and quality assurance. Based on the needs of software professionals, “Practical Software Testing” takes a unique approach to teaching readers how to effectively plan for testing, design test cases, test at multiple levels, organize a testing team, and optimize use of testing tools. It introduces testing concepts that are managerial-, technical-, and process-oriented, using the Testing Maturity Model (TMM) as a framework. Features: *includes a sample test plan, comprehensive exercises, and definitions for software testing and quality *introduces both technical and managerial aspects of testing in a clear and precise style, for integrated learning *balanced perspective and comprehensive view of all testing aspects *uses the TMM framework to introduce testing in a systematic, evolutionary way, and describes industrial TMM applications *covers testing topics with either procedurally based or object-oriented programming code With its accessible, practical, and well-focused framework, this new resource provides an integrated presentation of software-testing processes and practices. Professionals and practitioners in software testing, software quality assurance, or software validation and verification will benefit greatly from using this essential resource.
