Code Coverage Based Verification
1:20 PM - 1:55 PM
Testing is Verification & Validation. Verification – are we building the product right? Validation – are we building the right product? With Agile principles in place, when we release a Minimum Viable Product to customers, we receive feedback that helps us with validation. While validation is important and the core emphasis of practices like DoD, Acceptance criteria, and Systems Demo what is equally important is a scientific way to verify that we are building the product right. Let us evaluate the relevance of code coverage-based verification at systems testing - while it is extensively used during the unit testing phase, rarely do we use this technique at systems testing.
