Software Testing is the process used to help identify the correctness, completeness, security, and quality of developed computer software. This includes, but is not limited to, the process of executing a program or application with the intent of finding errors. Quality can be objectively quantified and scored via an editorial measurement framework characterizing software viability attributes.
In this whitepaper I argue that the person most affected by the introduction of agile or extreme programming techniques is not the software or quality assurance engineer, but the build manager. And the build manager can no longer make do with home grown tools; software production automation tools are required to make agile development a build reality.
Drive quality earlier in the development process with continuous testing.
Large development organizations have increasingly been adopting select agile practices to enable faster development, create more reliable software, and reduce costs. Chief among these practices is providing developers early and frequent feedback from users, from other developers, and especially from the programming, build, and test tools. In the latter category, continuous integration and continuous testing are emerging as valuable techniques for identifying errors early so they can be corrected immediately by the developer who made the code changes.

Accurate communication is the key to the success of the bug tracking process. This communication takes the form of timely information flow between customers, QA and Development. Reducing the time spent on tasks that communicate bug information saves money.
Here’s a test: Can you list all the issues your software team is working on now? Can you sort them by severity, priority, features affected, and other criteria such as whether the issue is a bug, customer request, or product enhancement? Can you show the histories of all related comments and actions? Can you distribute this information easily to concerned individuals — showing only the information relevant to them?
Elementool, a leading provider of web-based project management tools for developers, including bug, defect, time-tracking and help desk tools, has announced the release of a bug tracking add-in tool for developers using the Visual Studio.NET 2005 platform. It is available free to Elementool’s community of project management solution subscribers.
Being the new person on a bug tracking team can be very intimidating. The other team members are likely very set in the process and know exactly what they are doing. They are used to working as a team and they understand what is expected of them. Being new, though, does not mean that a person can not fit in on the bug tracking team. All a person needs to do is learn a few beginner tips to using bug tracking software.

Software development projects have a long and storied history of failure. In fact, 82% of projects today run late, while errors cost 80% of the average project budget to fix (The Standish Group). Certainly no other business process today is allowed to endure this sort of failure. But software development is often left to chance, despite the significant cost and importance of the process.
