The Core of Testing – Dynamic Testing Process – According to ISO 29119
This eBook is an extract from the ‘Guide to Advanced Software Testing (second edition)‘ by Anne Mette Hass. It covers the core processes, techniques, templates and practices of software testing that are invaluable to any software tester in the industry, whether they are starting out on their advanced testing journey or have already been working in test management or technical testing for some time.
Testers like to test! But sometimes it is difficult to get to grips with what testing really is; and it can be an overwhelming experience to be handed over a system and asked to test it. Where should you start? What should you test? How should you test it? In this webinar we will go through the dynamic testing process (as defined in ISO 29119 Standard for Software Testing) step by step. This will give an in-depth understanding of what the dynamic testing activities: Test Design and Implementation, Test Environment Set-up, and Test Execution, consist of. You can choose to perform the activities formally or informally, but no matter how you do it, understanding the activities and their purpose will enhance the quality of your testing.
