Implementing a Final Regression Test Process
After applications move into production, it is vital that subsequent additions or modifications are thoroughly tested and that the entire system is re-tested to ensure that it still functions after these changes. This process, called final regression testing, should be repeated for every new release. Many organizations that have attempted to implement a final regression test process have discovered that it isn't as easy as it sounds. In Jeff Tatleman's presentation you will learn a step-by-step approach to ensure successful implementation of a process that meets your technical needs and is attractive to your management.
These steps include documenting manual test cases, creating a dedicated testing environment, standardizing test data, and using automation.
- Analyze risk to ensure proper regression test coverage
- Use manual tests to drive test automation
- Simulate the process of migrating into production
