Example text

The inputs to unit testing are: 1. the unit specification 2. the unit code 3. a list of expected test results. The products of unit testing are the test results. Unit testing verifies that the behavior of the coding conforms to its unit specification. In system testing or integration testing, the modules are linked together and the complete system tested. The inputs to system testing are the system specification and the code for the complete system. The outcome of system testing is the completed, tested software, verifying that the system meets its specification.

Validation is a collection of techniques that try to ensure that the software does meet the requirements. On the other hand, reliability is to do with the technical issue of whether there are any faults in the software. Currently testing is one of the main techniques for trying to ensure that software works correctly. In testing, the software is run and its behavior checked against what is expected to happen. However, as we shall see later in this book, there is a fundamental problem with testing: however much you test a piece of software, you can never be sure that you have found every last bug.

3 shows typical figures. Clearly the cost of testing is enormous, whereas coding constitutes only a small part of software development. 3 Relative costs of the stages of software development method was devised that ensured the software was correct from the start, then testing would be unnecessary, and therefore only half the usual effort would be needed. Such a method would be a discovery indeed! If mistakes are a major problem, when are they made? 4 shows figures showing the number of errors made at the various stages of a typical project: However, this data is rather misleading.
