The Role of the Tester's Knowledge in Exploratory Software Testing
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering
By Juha Itkonen,Mika V. Mäntylä,Casper Lassenius
Issue Date:May 2013
pp. 707-724
We present a field study on how testers use knowledge while performing exploratory software testing (ET) in industrial settings. We video recorded 12 testing sessions in four industrial organizations, having our subjects think aloud while performing their ...
How do testers do it? An exploratory study on manual testing practices
Found in: Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement, International Symposium on
By Juha Itkonen, Mika V. Mantyla, Casper Lassenius
Issue Date:October 2009
pp. 494-497
We present the results of a qualitative observation study on the manual testing practices in four software development companies. Manual testing practices are seldom studied, and based on the literature we conjecture that they have a strong effect on the e...
Defect Detection Efficiency: Test Case Based vs. Exploratory Testing
Found in: Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement, International Symposium on
By Juha Itkonen, Mika V. Mantyla, Casper Lassenius
Issue Date:September 2007
pp. 61-70
This paper presents a controlled experiment comparing the defect detection efficiency of exploratory testing (ET) and test case based testing (TCT). While traditional testing literature emphasizes test cases, ET stresses the individual tester?s skills duri...
Improving the Interface Between Business and Product Development Using Agile Practices and the Cycles of Control Framework
Found in: Agile Development Conference/Australasian Database Conference
By Jari Vanhanen, Juha Itkonen, Petteri Sulonen
Issue Date:June 2003
pp. 71
The paper describes how we created and adopted an agile product development process in a small software company based on the Cycles of Control framework by combining selected agile practices and principles from the Scrum and XP methodologies. Describing th...
Increasing Understanding of the Modern Testing Perspective in Software Product Development Projects
Found in: Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences
By Maaret Pyhäjärvi, Kristian Rautiainen, Juha Itkonen
Issue Date:January 2003
pp. 250b
<p>Testing can be difficult to integrate into software development. Approaches to software testing in relation to implementing software are based on the V-model of testing. The software process behind the V-model is the traditional waterfall model, a...
Lightweight Elicitation and Analysis of Software Product Quality Goals: A Multiple Industrial Case Study
Found in: International Workshop on Software Product Management
By Jari Vanhanen, Mika V. Mäntylä, Juha Itkonen
Issue Date:September 2009
pp. 42-52
We developed and used a method that gathers rele- vant stakeholders to elicit, prioritize, and elaborate the quality goals of a software product. It is designed to be lightweight and easy to learn compared to methods for a more comprehensive analysis of no...
