The purpose is to define the procedures, tools and methodologies
that will be used to assure that several types of tests will be
created and will evolve with the software developed within the LCG
The aim, as is expressed in the document "Thoughts
on Software Process - V1 (Apr 19 2002)", is that software testing
will be an integral part of the software development process.
Software testing policies
within LCG AppArea projects.
FrameWorks for Sw-Testing:
Currently four test-framework tools are provided as free software
by the SPI External Software
Service. These are: CppUnit and PyUnit for unit-tests, Oval
which can cover from unit to validation tests, and QMTest which
provides more than a gui interface to organize and run the tests.
A set of HowTo documents listed below are available and can help
with this tools.
Sw-Testing documentation and planning:
The main purpose of this document is to define and schedule the
testing process with all necessary resources (hardware, software
and staff responsabilities). Under test leader responsability.
or test case specification is a specific set of steps and data
along with the expected results for a particular test objective
