A unified testing tool with deep integration into the developer’s IDE provides the most productive environment for development testing. A unified tool, such as Parasoft C/C++test, enables teams to...

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...

You don’t want coverage for coverage’s sake. You need meaningful coverage that indicates that you’ve done a good job testing the software.

Measurement of code coverage is one of those things that...

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...

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...

Why do so few available tools support path coverage?

High number of paths

The number of possible code paths typically increases exponentially with the cyclomatic complexity of a method. Achieving...
