Test early, test often

By: John D. McGregor


A colleague at Clemson University recently complained that his students could not write good test cases. At about that time, I worked with a very large development project that had just experienced the embarrassment of failing a customer acceptance test because multiple severe defects were discovered by the customer's tests. I thought it might be useful to explore the strategic significance of testing in software development.
