Second Edition

Naresh Chauhan

This second edition of Software Testing serves as a textbook for students of computer science, information technology, and computer applications. The book focuses on software testing, not only as a phase of software development life cycle (SDLC), but also as a complete process to fulfil the demands of quality software.

Beginning with an introduction to software testing terminology and methodology, and verification and validation activities, the book provides an exhaustive coverage of testing techniques including dynamic and static testing, various validation activities, and regression testing. The book then delves into the various stages of the testing process life cycle such as test process management, testing metrics, efficient test suite management, debugging, and quality management.

The book covers ready-to-use checklists that can be used at the time of verification of software and extends to cover a case study on Income Tax Calculator describing all the major software testing techniques and concepts in a practical manner, thus making this book a valuable reference for testing professionals as well.

Suitable for: Students of computer science, information technology, and computer applications
