Description : The Software Test Description (STD) describes the test preparations, test cases, and test procedures to be used to perform qualification testing of a Computer Software Configuration Item (CSCI) or a software system or subsystem. 3.2 The STD enables the acquirer to assess the adequacy of the qualification testing to be performed. 7.1 This Data Item Description (DID) contains the format and content preparation instructions for the data product generated by specific and discrete task requirements as delineated in the contract. 7.2 This DID is used when the developer is tasked to define and record the test preparations, test cases, and test procedures to be used for CSCI qualification testing or for system qualification testing of a software system. 7.3 The Contract Data Requirements List (CDRL) (DD 1423) should specify whether deliverable data are to be delivered on paper or electronic media; are to be in a given electronic form (such as ASCII, CALS, or compatible with a specified word processor or other support software); may be delivered in developer format rather than in the format specified herein; and may reside in a computer-aided software engineering (CASE) or other automated tool rather than in the form of a traditional document. 7.4
Software Testing Basics
Author : Elaine Weyuker
Description : Software testing is a field with no set "best practices." Because so much of testing is based on the particular context of the test, it's often difficult to clarify, categorize and dispense advice on aspects of software testing. However, there are fundamental rules around which testers can frame their work. This learning guide contains advice for software testing broadly and regression testing, performance testing and user acceptance testing specifically. The section on regression testing also includes a subsection on smoke and sanity testing.
Pratical Software Testing
Author : Ilene Burnstein
Description : Software testing is rapidly evolving as a critical sub-discipline of software engineering. The industry needs professionals educated in the modern methods and tools of software testing and quality assurance. Based on the needs of software professionals, "Practical Software Testing" takes a unique approach to teaching readers how to effectively plan for testing, design test cases, test at multiple levels, organize a testing team, and optimize use of testing tools. It introduces testing concepts that are managerial-, technical-, and process-oriented, using the Testing Maturity Model (TMM) as a framework.
*includes a sample test plan, comprehensive exercises, and definitions for software testing and quality
*introduces both technical and managerial aspects of testing in a clear and precise style, for integrated learning
*balanced perspective and comprehensive view of all testing aspects
*uses the TMM framework to introduce testing in a systematic, evolutionary way, and describes industrial TMM applications
*covers testing topics with either procedurally based or object-oriented programming code With its accessible, practical, and well-focused framework, this new resource provides an integrated presentation of software-testing processes and practices. Professionals and practitioners in software testing, software quality assurance, or software validation and verification will benefit greatly from using this essential resource.
Software Testing Analysis and Review
Author : James Whittaker,BharatMediratta,ElishbethHendrickson,TomWissink
Description : You can't "test quality into" a software product, but neither can you build a quality software product without test and analysis. Software test and analysis is increasingly recognized, in research and in industrial practice, as a core challenge in software engineering and computer science. Software Testing and Analysis: Process, Principles, and Techniques is the first book to present a range of complementary software test and analysis techniques in an integrated, coherent fashion. It covers a full spectrum of topics from basic principles and underlying theory to organizational and process issues in real-world application. The emphasis throughout is on selecting a complementary set of practical techniques to achieve an acceptable level of quality at an acceptable cost.

Description : Borland SilkTest is the proven choice of QA professionals for powerful, functional and regression test automation. Intuitive GUI record-and-play capabilities, coupled with a stable, easy-to-use testing language, enables you to build functional and regression tests that do not break with minor changes to the application—a problem that makes most functional testing tools too costly to implement. SilkTest delivers time-tested stability and support for major enterprise environments in a cost-effective package, making automated regression and functional software testing a key capability instead of an expensive option.
