Testing: Difficult or Time-Consuming? (Developsense Blog)

On September 29, 2011, in Syndicated, by admin

In my recent blog post, Testing Problems Are Test Results, I noted a question that we might ask about people’s perceptions of testing itself: Does someone perceive testing to be difficult or time-consuming? Who? What’s the basis for that perception? What assumptions underlie it? The answer to that question may provide important clues to the [...]

A heuristic is a fallible method for solving a problem or making a decision. “Heuristic” as an adjective means “something that helps us to learn”. In testing, an oracle is a heuristic principle or mechanism by which we recognize a problem. Some years ago, during a lunch break from the Rapid Software Testing class, a [...]
