    Salient Features

    • Draws on common industry practice, the author's personal experience with testing, the author's clients, and users of GCT (Generic Coverage Tool).
    • Promotes a philosophy of designing tests with constant attention to likely programmer mistakes.
    • Uses C throughout, and the techniques apply equally well to C++ and other languages, and to object-oriented programs.
    • Contains detailed, step-by-step examples.
    • Provides a modern treatment of coverage and white box testing.
    • Features unique material on testing bug fixes and other changes-e.g., how the test design process differs when you are testing changes.
    • Includes several appendices that describe how to test common situations, and checklists for steps in the testing process.
