Ten Factors for a Successful Regression Test. Conclusions.

What you just can't do without.

Regression testing is a central component in ensuring software quality. Done correctly the software delivered will be more reliable, and robust, increasing in quality more so after every release. Applying the ten key factors above will ensure that your software delivery will be as bug free as possible every time.

Just make sure when you set things up:

  • Your process allows you to identify all changes including in the UI, not just the expected ones.
  • You can quickly and easily baseline scripts to keep pace with the rate of change-you don’t want to resort to writing elaborate code here. If your solution doesn’t support this it can often fall into disuse.
  • Output documents and reports are user friendly and will make sense to both IT and business users alike.

At Original Software our approach to regression testing takes  into account over 20 years’ experience of solving the issues and using the key tenants above.

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.
