Bertolino A., Marchetti E. A brief essay on Software Testing. The document has been submitted to other: Software Engineering , IEEE Computer Society, Technical report, 2004.
Testing is an important and critical part of the software development process, on which the quality and reliability of the delivered product strictly depend. Testing is not limited to the detection of "bugs" in the software, but also increases confidence in its proper functioning and assists with the evaluation of functional and nonfunctional properties. Testing related activities encompass the entire development process and may consume a large part of the effort required for producing software. In this chapter we provide a comprehensive overview of software testing, from its definition to its organization, from test levels to test techniques, from test execution to the analysis of test cases effectiveness. Emphasis is more on breadth than depth: due to the vastness of the topic, in the attempt to be all-embracing, for each covered subject we can only provide a brief description and references useful for further reading.
