Produktbeschreibungen

Synopsis

Provides a practical rather than theoretical discussion of the purpose and nature of software testing. Emphasizes methodologies for the design of effective test cases. Comprehensively covers psychological and economic principles, managerial aspects of testing, test tools, high-order testing, code inspections, and debugging. Extensive bibliography. Programmers at all levels, and programming students, will find this reference work indispensible.

Klappentext

When this book was first published in 1979, software testing was far from an exact science. Considered the "dark art" of software development, it was a little-understood process without a set of standard principles.Twenty-five years later, testing hasn’t really changed–but The Art of Software Testing has.

In addition to all the major software testing topics–such as higher-order testing, white- and black-box testing, debugging, code inspections, and walkthroughs–this fully updated Second Edition features up-to-date information on testing twenty-first-century software projects, including vital Internet-based e-commerce applications, as well as details on Extreme Testing, which supports the widely used Extreme Programming development methodology.

Just like the first edition, this revision fills the gaps in the professional literature and provides a practical, rather than theoretical, discussion of the purpose, nature, and principles of proper testing. While the book focuses on methodologies for the design of effective test cases, it also covers the psychological and economic issues that are essential to a full understanding of program testing.

Many programming students enter the workforce without the proper understanding of software testing. This book covers all the essential topics for those students, but also provides all the detail and precision that working programmers might need during the testing phase. Appropriate for programmers and students at any level, The Art of Software Testing, Second Edition presents all the latest new ideas and techniques–many illustrated with helpful examples. Comprehensive and always practical, this essential guide includes code-inspection checklists, a self-assessment test, and other resources programmers need for effective testing–and fewer bugs.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
......... this is probably not the first book that you would buy about software testing.
However, the book is a classic and it deserves a place on a serious tester's bookshelf.
Its examples are dated, I think its description of cause-effect graphing is incomprehensible, and its catalog of test types in the pages from 103 forward is sketchy.
The book is valuable because its presentation of the basic issues is clear, concise, and persuasive. The discussion of equivalence classes and boundaries is remarkably clear. When we wrote Testing Computer Software, one of our goals was to handle this important topic as clearly and crisply as Myers. That was a challenge, and I'm not sure we succeeded. (Jorgensen's Software Testing: A Craftsman's Approach does a great job with this topic.) The discussion of bias (one of the issues in the psychology of testing) is also well done.
In short, the first 103 pages of the book are some of the best writing in the field and have had a powerful influence on the writers who came later. Reading them in the original will often, I suspect, make subsequent presentations clearer and more meaningful.

Von Ein Kunde am 13. September 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book was a noble effort for its time. It's a good starting place, especially since it's the one book on software testing that all the other authors seem to have read. And the chapter on test cases is pretty good.
The book has some problems, though. First and most obviously, the book has a lard factor of about 60%. Short as it is, it needs a lot of pruning. (See Richard Lanham: Revising Prose.)
Second, here and there it is just wrong. E.g., in its answers to the chapter 1 neophyte tester test, there are six, not three, permutations of three distinguishable objects.
Third, he doesn't adequately sum up or review what he's said or done. Nowhere does he have a survey of what techniques one should use to generate all the test cases for his chapter 1 test. In chapter 2 he gives a horrible example of why you can't do exhaustive branch testing of a program with even fairly simple logic inside a loop, but he never comes back to say how you *should* test such a thing. Later on he talks about multiple decision/condition coverage, but he never explains how that differs from exhaustive branch testing.
Also -- OK, it was a first try, so perhaps one shouldn't expect too much. But by now someone should be applying complexity theory to the problem. Given *this* program and *this* test coverage criterion, how many test cases will it take to test this program? And the coverage criteria should be stated in terms of the language definition, i.e. probably in terms of Backus-Naur form.
Buy this book. Read it, with a red pencil in hand. But expect it to raise as many questions as it answers.

Like all standard references, one can argue that the book is dated. In details perhaps yes, though my professional experience indicates that a 25 year old book still defines a higher level of software testing than the current state of the practice.
The first 75 pages lay out the basic approaches to software testing and make for easy technical reading. More detailed graph theory follows and helps take the reader to a more rigorous approach.
Please feel free to contact me for more detailed insght and opinions.

It is a classic. Many new testing books came out later, but frankely speaking, they were much worse this classic. Talking mistakes in the book, well, there are more mistakes in other books.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Must Have" Reference in Every Software Tester's Library 7. September 2000
Von Just a Dude - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is by far the most concise and insightful book I've ever read about code level testing. It does not have all the nitty gritty details of every which method ever invented, nor does go into details about the paperwork. But the lists of principles and checklists are priceless.
I would not recommend this book for beginners since it is hard for inexperienced testers to pick out the gems from the dated items.
I agree with a previous review that stated that the first hundred or so pages are must reads. Don't be put off by the $ per page ratio. This book is worth every penny.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Number 1 Classic Testing Book 16. November 2013
Von Walker Boh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a classic testing book. When I was originally handed a copy and saw the 1972 date I was put off. Don't let that fool you. This is a very concise but comprehensive testing book. Other books just babble on over and over. This one gives it to you once. If you don't get it, read it again- though you won't have to. A must read for testers.
