Test driven development approach demands sophisticated tool support for being accepted and successful
Christine Mitterbauer, MicroDoc GmbH
Testing must start at the lowest possible level with verification of basic functionality and interfaces. This is classical functional testing. As the level of abstraction of software rises, so also must the flexibility and sophistication of the test tooling so as to include validation of interfaces, semantics and functional scenarios. Ideally testing will be part of the development process and will be perceived as a personal responsibility of by each developer. Testing will be automated, impersonal, reproducible and objective.
