You’ve checked your environments secured the process for re-usable and renewable data – we now need to consider the landscape scope.
With regression testing integration is key. This may be integration of different components within an application but also more importantly across applications. Most systems require end to end processes that cross many platforms and databases. It is important to define the landscape to regression test before testing starts.Sometimes it may be necessary to use stubs or API calls to mimic certain applications responses if they are not yet available to use in the test process.
This is an extract from a whitepaper titled “Top Ten Factors for a Successful Regression Test” which takes you through the key factors that will ensure the best outcome – if all is as it should be and no defects have found their way through – then you have conducted a successful regression test.
