A: The testing landscape and its gaps The development process is putting testing at the front There are many tools supporting the testing domain But the tools don’t talk to each other 2013-09 4 How to industrialize testing
The development process is putting testing at the front • • In the agile, Behaviour Driven Development, continuous delivery paradigms, test design comes before development. … therefore.. testing is even more closely integrate with business requirements User story User Test case Develop Backlog Test result Production 2013-09 5 How to industrialize testing
There are many tools supporting the testing domain MS Excel everywhere! • • • Testing is supported by many tools It has to be because testing's scope is 100% wide Many of the tools are excellent, with long, successful histories and wide adoption MD Testing specifications Continuous testing and integration Quality Center Requirements management, test management Behaviour driven testing Testing environment virtualisation Auto testing of business rules 2013-09 6 The testing profile and its opportunity
But there is a problem The tools do not talk to each other User Acceptance Risk Test plan Test management Test case Tester Test result Unit test System Under Test data Test Programmer Database User Operating model / User story Business process Test runner Project manager 2013-09 7 Test environment How to industrialize testing
B: What is the UML Testing Profile? The UTP is the implementation of an idea – design and build are 2 different things The UTP is a holistic, logical, design view of testing It describes testing in 6 domains 2013-09 8 The testing profile and its opportunity
UTP is the implementation of an idea – design and build are 2 different things Strategy and design are specific tasks Architect Design Build Building and executing are separate concerns 2013-09 9 The testing profile and its opportunity
UML Testing Profile is a language for describing and designing testing The language describes 100% of testing Architect Design Build 2013-09 10 How to industrialize testing
The UML Testing Profile describes testing in 6 domains Test architecture: Testing meta model, business domain, testing package Test package: SUT, test context, test components Test configuration: Test cases, scheduler, arbiters, logs Test case: Testing activity Test data: Data pools, partitions, selectors Deployment: Nodes for SUT, Test components, Scheduler 2013-09 11 How to industrialize testing
a) Test architecture • • • Testing meta model Business domain Testing package 2013-09 12 The testing profile and its opportunity
b) Test package • • • SUT Test context Test components 2013-09 13 The testing profile and its opportunity
c) Test configuration • • • • Test cases Scheduler Arbiters Logs 2013-09 14 The testing profile and its opportunity
d) Test case • Testing activity 2013-09 15 The testing profile and its opportunity
e) Test data • • • Data pools Partitions Selectors 2013-09 16 The testing profile and its opportunity
f) Deployment • • • Nodes for System Under Test Test components Scheduler 2013-09 17 The testing profile and its opportunity
C: Steps to exploiting the opportunity of UTP 1) 2) 3) 4) Adopt the mental model Architect your testing Adopt the language Industrialize your testing process 2013-09 18 The testing profile and its opportunity
1) Adopt the mental model Separation of concerns with each concern well managed. Architect Design Build Testing analysis and design is supported with the right language and mental models 2013-09 19 The testing profile and its opportunity
2) Architect your testing • Break your testing domain into standardized packages 2013-09 20 The testing profile and its opportunity
3) Adopt the language 2013-09 21 The testing profile and its opportunity
4) Industrialize your testing process Implement the big ideas of Testing Industrialization • Big idea 1: Industrialise the understand of your business • Big idea 2: Industrialise the design of your testing ecosystem • Big idea 3: Overlay your business understanding with your testing requirements • Big idea 4: Drive testing through automation and tooling See the presentation “How to industrialize software testing” 2013-09 22 The testing profile and its opportunity
D: Summary and further reading The UML Testing Profile: - Gives control to management - Guarantees test coverage of the business domain - Automates testing processes - Enables industrialization 2013-09 23 The testing profile and its opportunity
