Thoughts on Testing

While programming we write extensive tests. Tests are extra program code, which checks many functions. Basically every piece of code must be tested and be testable all the time. This is the programmers way to make sure, that a complex program works, even if things change over time.

The new client has now more than 100 test functions, each checking a group of functions. The upcoming portal just reached 50. Both are growing quickly with the number of feature blocks in the code. Sometimes we spend complete days writing tests. This sounds much, but it is worth the time, because tests easily spare much time later that would be spent debugging. Writing so much test code is a part of agile development.

hello ... friends, I know that recent testing done in the system are very important for detecting faults, but we could test with the user community OVW a beta test because it would be very important for developers to see if this beta test could be errors and thus correct . I thank your attention.
