2.3. Testing View Points

Corresponding to each base model of software development life cycle, test models must be designed during software testing life cycle. The activities in a testing life cycle must be viewed from three view points i.e.
  • Test Environment
  • Base Models
  • Test Models

Test Environment is across the organization and addresses approach, framework, standards to be followed during testing, and test repository. Test repository is a storage system, for all the test objects such as Test Plan, Test suites, Test script etc, which are project or product specific.

Base Models produced during SDLC shall be reviewed by testers in order to gain test scope, test case design, and expected test coverage.

Test Models are being built during Software Test Life Cycles (STLC) by using Base Models of SDLC as the basis.

In this chapter, we discuss on test environment. In the following chapters, we discuss on Software Development Life Cycles (SDLC), Software Test Life Cycles (STLC), Base Models and Test Models.
