Sample text

Development of object-oriented software systems often uses the rational unified process [Jacobson 99]. All of these models define a systematic, orderly way of working during the project. In most cases, phases or design steps are defined. They have to be completed with a result in the form of a document. A phase completion, often called a ➞milestone, is achieved when the required documents are completed and conform to the given quality criteria. Usually, ➞roles dedicated to specific tasks in software development 7.

This leads to high losses of sales, maybe even for all games produced by the company. Thus, for every software program it must be decided how intensively and thoroughly it shall be tested. This decision must be made based upon the expected risk of failure of the program. Since a complete test is not possible, it is important how the limited test resources are used. To get a satisfying result, the tests must be designed and executed in a structured and systematic way. Only then is it possible to find many failures with appropriate effort and avoid ➞unnecessary tests that would not give more information about system quality.

The goal of the test strategy is the optimal distribution of the tests to the “right” parts of the software system. The VSR-System consists of the following subsystems: ■ DreamCar allows the individual configuration of a car and its extra equipment. ContractBase manages all customer information and contract data. ■ JustInTime implements the ability to place online orders (within the first expansion stage by the dealer). ■ EasyFinance calculates an optimal method of financing for the customer. ■ NoRisk provides the ability to purchase appropriate insurance.
