Software Engineering/Software Testing

All the proven testing strategies, tools, and techniques you need to guarantee that your applications do exactly what they're supposed to do!

When it comes to software performance, your customers hate surprises. And the best way to ensure that your systems don't give them any is by implementing a rigorous, fully integrated testing regime that encompasses every phase of the software development life cycle—from design to installation, and beyond. Now, in Effective Methods for Software Testing, internationally recognized software testing expert William Perry provides you with everything you need to do just that, including:

  • Tests for all types of software systems, including Client/Server and LANs
  • Clear, step-by-step guidelines on how to establish a test approach and overall testing plan
  • Proven methodologies for conducting tests quickly and efficiently
  • 15 testing techniques covering all phases of the development life cycle
  • 42 testing tools and 30 metrics
  • Detailed instructions on how to seamlessly integrate the tools and techniques into the development life cycle
  • Techniques for evaluating test effectiveness
  • Dozens of worksheets and checklists for use during every step of the testing process

Short on theory and long on nuts-and-bolts information and guidance, Effective Methods for Software Testing arms you with what you need to guarantee that your customers get what they deserve—the most usable, bug-free software possible.
