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.

From the Publisher:

Based on the author's professional short course, this outstanding guide covers the object-oriented testing techniques that will help you achieve the following goals: reusability, higher quality, and lower development costs. Presents the different components of the object--tools, software system, test suites, resources, etc.--and a series of methods which demonstrate how the object dynamically interacts with other objects. Most concepts discussed feature class and object diagrams to illustrate how classes and objects relate to one another.

About the Author:

Shel Siegel is a master systems scientist, a quality degapper, and the former technical editor of Software Quality World. He is a well-known author and speaker on software quality and software testing techniques.
