Software verification and validation is an inherent part of software development. The effort and budget put into particular V&V projects depends on many factors, such as functional safety...

I recently wrote about how easy it is to fall into the trap of chasing code coverage percentages, which led to a good amount of discussion, so I thought I would take a deeper dive into code...

Measurement of code coverage is one of those things that always catches my attention. On the one hand, I often find that organizations don’t necessarily know how much code they are covering during...

Exercise is hard – well, actually it’s not so much hard as it is tedious and easy to avoid. The exercise itself is straightforward, but doing it regularly is the hard part. As it turns out,...

Welcome to the second session of Testing 1-2-3! This series features conversations with software testing industry leaders on a broad spectrum of software testing topics—DevOps, Agile, IoT testing,...

Code coverage is a first step in an overall software quality process that enables you to begin understanding where risk is lurking in your application. Furthermore, the methods in which coverage...

Understanding the various aspects of test coverage is the first step towards creating effective test suites. Coverage awareness is the next step. If you have not already done so, you should...
The concept of coverage density is somewhat related to test overlap. Generally, you want to avoid having multiple test cases test the same functionality (i.e., minimize the test overlap). The...

As surprising as it may sound, even complete path coverage does not mean that your code always behaves correctly. If you are using a test-driven development approach (TDD), you will be familiar...
