How costly is a bug caught in the field? 1,000 times costlier than finding it early

Posted by Clay Zeigler on October 29, 2014 at 8:30am 0 Comments

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…

CIO study shows the folly in retaining status quo in software testing

The world of the chief information officer is changing. And a new study suggests that this will have big ramifications for testing of applications and other software.

Q&A: A new approach for testing web behavior

Posted by George Lawton on October 27, 2014 at 7:30am 0 Comments

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.

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
