Abstract:

Software is often developed via a series of modifications and releases. This sort of development implies the testing often takes place in an increasingly familiar structure, rather than a unique or unfamiliar structure. This paper discusses how to exploit this type of development in test planning and execution, by presenting a motivational example, a formal model of test iteration and a discussion of tools to enhance the efficiency of testing when an iterative approach is used.
