Environment support for the Software Testing Process

Author:Wartik, Steven, Department of Computer ScienceUniversity of Virginia

This paper discusses how a software development environment should support the testing process - - that is, the coordination of interactions between developers and testers. For a large project, the problem is a serious one, involving a significant amount of communication overhead that can result in long delays. The testing process is first formally defined. Next, a solution is presented, based on the typical communication capabilities present in software development environments. This solution has been implemented, and the user interface of the tools that do so are described. An experience using the tools is related. The experience shows that an environment can indeed influence the ease with which testing occurs.
