Mixing Tests and Production Code With Doctest

October 25, 2017 0

doctest is a fully open source light and feature-rich C++98 / C++11 single-header testing framework for unit tests and TDD. It is inspired by the unittest {} functionality of the D programming language and Python’s docstrings. Tests can be considered a form of documentation and should be able to reside near the production code which they test. This is not possible (or at least practical) with any other testing framework for C++.

Scaling xUnit Test Runners

Functional testing is an important checkpoint before releasing a mobile application. In this article, Dmitriy Radchenko shares a checklist of some of the basic points that will be common among mobile applications when you need to perform functional testing.

A Baseline Approach to Software Testing

October 9, 2017 0

Unit testing and Test-Driven-Development (TDD) are an important part of every Agile software testing strategy. One of the issue associated to these techniques is the coupling between the source code and its tests. In his blog post, Tingan Ho presents a testing strategy, called Baseline Testing, that should solve the coupling issues with TDD.

Automated Testing for Continuous Delivery Pipelines

October 4, 2017 0

Today’s continuous delivery (CD) pipeline is a collection of many technologies that ensure the highest quality product reaches production. As a new feature moves from concept to production it goes through several phases of testing. However, for the CD pipeline to remain efficient, the bulk of this testing must be automated. Unit tests, load tests, integration tests, and user interface tests all require automation infrastructure.

Using Equivalence Partitioning in Software Testing

October 3, 2017 4

Equivalence partitioning is a software testing technique that can be used during test design to divide the test data into sets of equivalent data called partitions from which you can build your test cases. In this extract from her book “Guide to Advanced Software Testing”, Anne Mette Hass provides an introduction to the concept of equivalence partitioning.
