For software teams developing a complex long-term software project, the only way to ensure stability, maintainability, and freedom from regressions is to build the company’s testing pyramid on a solid foundation of unit tests.
This foundation comes with costs that need to be considered in order to reap the rewards that thorough unit testing provides.
Developers need unit tests to enable themselves to quickly and easily identify regression changes that they or someone else has introduced. Unit testing is worth the time and effort because developers need to be able to check the functions that implement the requirements of the product, and ensure correctness now and in the future.
This paper discusses the best ways to reap the benefits associated with unit testing, including learning unit testing best practices and testing frameworks and establishing a continuous process of test creation, execution, and maintenance. It also describes the advantages of deploying Parasoft's Jtest Unit Test Assistant to eliminate unit testing tedium.
Parasoft’s software testing solutions support the entire software development process, from when the developer writes the first line of code all the way through unit and functional testing, to performance and security testing, leveraging simulated test environments along the way. Parasoft's unique analytics platform aggregates data from across all testing practices, providing insights up and down the testing pyramid to enable organizations to succeed in today's most strategic development initiatives, including Agile/DevOps, Continuous Testing, and the complexities of IoT. Parasoft’s automated software testing innovations fuel software development organizations, helping teams reduce the time, cost, and effort of delivering high-quality software to the market.
