The Domain Testing Workbook
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Domain testing is the most widely taught technique in software testing. However, many of the presentations stick with examples that are too simple to provide a strong basis for applying the technique. Others focus on mathematical models or analysis of the program’s source code. The Domain Testing Workbook will help you develop deep skill with this technique whether or not you have access to source code or an abiding interest in mathematics.
The Domain Testing Workbook provides a schema to organize domain testing and test design, with dozens of practical problems and sample analyses. Readers can try their hand at applying the schema and compare their analyses against over 200 pages of worked examples.
You will learn:
- when and how to use domain testing;
- how to apply a risk-focused approach with domain testing;
- how to use domain testing within a broader testing strategy; and
- how to use domain testing in an exploratory way.
This book is for:
- Software testers who want to develop expertise in the field’s most popular test technique
- Test managers who want to assess and improve their staff’s skills
- Trainers and professors interested in adding depth and skill-based learning to black box testing or test design classes.

Sowmya Padmanabhan, M.Sc., currently works at Google as a Program Manager. Before that she worked in Program Management and Software Development/Test at Microsoft and at Texas Instruments. She has a Masters degree in Computer Sciences with a specialization in Software Testing. Sowmya’s thesis involved extensive research in training new testers to do skilled Domain Testing.

POTENTIALLY INTERESTING VARIABLES • ACT39 • GPA40 • AdmissionCalculation (the value of ACT + 10 × GPA) • AdmissionDecision (Yes, if AdmissionCalculation ≥ 71. Otherwise, No.). The program may not have a specific variable that holds AdmissionCalculation, but if we interpret the problem description as stating the program will do this calculation, then the program will store the result at least temporarily in order to make the admission decision. AdmissionCalculation is the name we’re giving to.
Change any of the elements of the course (such as adding videos or discussion forums or changing how quizzes are graded.) If you have taken a university course that had a graduate student who served as Teaching Assistant, that person would probably be the Non-Editing Teacher in the Moodle course. • The Student can see the content posted in the course (for example, watch videos) and can engage in the activities (take quizzes and post messages to discussion forums). However, much of what the.
Happens when you assign two roles to the same person? Cumulative privileges? (All privileges available to either role?) (That’s our expectation.) Only those privileges that are common to both roles? Is it possible for selection of one role to reduce the privileges, in any way, that would be otherwise available to someone who had also been selected for a second role? º Can a person with lower privileges assign a role that has higher privileges? For example, can a Teacher make someone an.
That one person in the group is much like any other. • In contrast, the domain tester’s goal is to create a highly powerful set of tests in order to expose bugs (with a small group of tests), in all of the program’s testable variables. Testers subdivide a variable’s domain into subsets when they believe that different subsets could trigger different program failures. Domain testers don’t select values randomly from equivalence classes (unless there is no basis for preferring one test over.
How much memory is available to the application while the software under test is doing something. What should the software under test be doing? What tests will reveal potential configuration problems? EXERCISES: PART 4-R Please imagine and document risks that don’t necessarily map to an obvious dimension in each question below: R.1.
