How costly is software failure? As blogger Chris Hobbs noted recently at electronicdesign.com, the cost of fixing a bug caught in the field is a thousand times greater than fixing the same bug during the requirements phase.
And, he writes, requirements are the source of 56 percent of all system defects. Those sobering facts are the launching pad for a discussion about how to improve the quality of software before its release, versus chasing bugs after release, as is so common today.
“Failure rate runs high following the initial release because customers use the product in ways the developers didn’t anticipate and therefore didn’t verify,” Hobbs says, noting the…Continue
For one thing, while it may appear that economic boom times are here, CIOs remember what happened when the housing bubble burst in 2008 and 2009. Perhaps not surprisingly, their priority remains using technology and process improvements to get costs under control.
The study led by Capgemini found that CIOs are also trying to support organic growth in their companies, both by introducing new products and platforms and by upgrading their existing technological wares to succeed in the proverbial “always on” world.
In a survey of…Continue
There are a number of different ways to test software code for Web applications. They include static analysis and dynamic testing approaches, such as Service Virtualization. Static analysis techniques provide a quick-and-dirty way to identify problems earlier in the development process, but the approach traditionally is limited in the kinds of bugs it can detect. We caught up with Tevfik Bultan, professor of computer science at UC Santa Barbara, who is launching a major research project to develop a new approach to testing Web applications to address some of these limitations.

Hi All,I have not virtualized DB before,Can anybody please describe the steps to create successful Virtual JDBC using agent based protocol in LISA 7.1?Help is appreciated.Thanks,AbhiContinue
We just had a training on CA LISA. I understood creating a virtual service and deploying in VSE. But I don;t understand the concept behind it1. Say I am SOAP web service provider and while trying to test my impl ,the underlying database is not available. How does vsi help in this scenario ?2. use wsdls to create vsi.. It may make an endpoint available in the virtual server but how does it help testing team since it would only have the raw response and not the actual provider response. So when…Continue
