More than ever, mission-critical and business-critical applications depend on object-oriented (OO) software. Testing techniques tailored to the unique challenges of OO technology are necessary to achieve high reliability and quality. "Testing Object-Oriented Systems: Models, Patterns, and Tools" is an authoritative guide to designing and automating test suites for OO applications. This comprehensive book explains why testing must be model-based and provides in-depth coverage of techniques to develop testable models from state machines, combinational logic, and the Unified Modeling Language (UML). It introduces the test design pattern and presents 37 patterns that explain how to design responsibility-based test suites, how to tailor integration and regression testing for OO code, how to test reusable components and frameworks, and how to develop highly effective test suites from use cases. Effective testing must be automated and must leverage object technology. The author describes how to design and code specification-based assertions to offset testability losses due to inheritance and polymorphism. Fifteen micro-patterns present oracle strategies--practical solutions for one of the hardest problems in test design. Seventeen design patterns explain how to automate your test suites with a coherent OO test harness framework. The author provides thorough coverage of testing issues such as: The bug hazards of OO programming and differences from testing procedural code How to design responsibility-based tests for classes, clusters, and subsystems using class invariants, interface data flow models, hierarchic state machines, class associations, and scenario analysis How to support reuse by effective testing of abstract classes, generic classes, components, and frameworks How to choose an integration strategy that supports iterative and incremental development How to achieve comprehensive system testing with testable use cases How to choose a regression test approach How to develop expected test results and evaluate the post-test state of an object How to automate testing with assertions, OO test drivers, stubs, and test frameworks Real-world experience, world-class best practices, and the latest research in object-oriented testing are included. Practical examples illustrate test design and test automation for Ada 95, C++, Eiffel, Java, Objective-C, and Smalltalk. The UML is used throughout, but the test design patterns apply to systems developed with any OO language or methodology. 0201809389B04062001

Object-oriented programming increases software reusability, extensibility, interoperability, and reliability. Software testing is necessary to realize these benefits. Software testing aims to uncover as many programming errors as possible at a minimum cost. A major challenge to the software engineering community remains how to reduce the cost and improve the quality of software testing. The requirements for testing object-oriented programs differ from those for testing conventional programs. Testing Object-Oriented Software illustrates these differences and discusses object-oriented software testing problems, focusing on the difficulties and challenges testers face. The book provides a general framework for class- and system-level testing and examines object-oriented design criteria and high testability metrics. It offers object-oriented testing techniques, ideas and methods for unit testing, and object-oriented program integration-testing strategy. Readers are shown how they can drastically reduce regression test costs, presented with steps for object-oriented testing, and introduced to object-oriented test tools and systems. In addition to software testing problems, the text covers various test methods developers can use during the design phase to generate programs with good testability. The book's intended audience includes object-oriented program testers, program developers, software project managers, and researchers working with object-oriented testing.

The continual evolution of object oriented technologies creates both opportunities and challenges. However, despite the growing popularity of object oriented technology, there are numerous issues that have contributed to its inability to firmly entrench itself and take over for the older, proven technologies. Object oriented technology's image problem has created a highly difficult decision making process for corporations considering widespread adoption of these technologies. Object Oriented Technologies: Opportunities and Challenges addresses concerns, opportunities and technology trends in the application of object oriented technologies. The chapters of this book were selected to represent a variety of perspectives concerning the present and future of this broad sub-field of software development.

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.

An important new object-oriented testing approach that gives you greater reusability, improved software quality, and reduced development costs Integration testing, black box testing, regression testing, requirements testing . . . all of these can be highly effective approaches when applied to conventional top-down or structured software development. But object-oriented developers are discovering that the procedural approach to testing is not sufficient when applied to the kind of software they develop. As author Shel Siegel clearly demonstrates in this groundbreaking book, object-oriented software development requires a radically different testing approach, one that incorporates a new set of strategies, testing procedures customized for objects and components, and an integrated, specialized object-oriented testing infrastructure. Now, in Object Oriented Software Testing, he specifies the OO testing system, its objects, environment, tools, and procedures, and shows you how to use them to optimize your object-oriented development efforts. The hierarchical approach described in this book is the first testing scheme designed specifically to address the unique goals and concerns inherent to object-oriented development projects. In case after case it yields nothing less than remarkable results-greater reusability, higher software quality, and consistently lower development costs than those incurred during structured applications development. The first book to explore one of the most important developments in software engineering in recent years, Object Oriented Software Testing is an important addition to your software development library.

Since the last publication of this international bestseller, software testing has seen a renaissance of renewed interest and technology. The biggest change comes in the growing prominence and acceptance of Agile Programming. Software Testing: A Craftsman’s Approach, Third Edition extends the combination of theory and practicality of the first two editions to include agile programming development and discusses the serious effect this emerging area is having on software testing. The third edition of the widely adopted text and reference book is comprised of six parts. It begins by providing the mathematical background in discrete mathematics and linear graph theory that is used in subsequent sections. The book continues to describe specification-based (functional) and code-based (structural) test development techniques, while extending this theoretical approach to less understood levels of integration and system testing. The author further develops this discussion to include object-oriented software. A completely new section relates all of the previously discussed concepts to the agile software development movement and highlights issues such as how agile and XP development environments are radically changing the role of software testers by making testing integral at every phase of the development process. Thoroughly revised and updated, Software Testing: A Craftsman’s Approach, Third Edition is sure to become a standard reference for those who need to stay up-to-date with evolving technologies in software testing. Carrying on the tradition of previous editions, it will continue to serve as a valuable reference for software testers, developers, and engineers.
