The tool checks source code, for certain properties such as conformance to coding standards, quality metrics or data flow anomalies. Reports are prepared that compare the actuals to that which was planned.

A way of developing software where the test cases are developed, and often automated, before the software is developed to run those test cases. Testing of a previously tested program following modification to ensure that defects have not been introduced or uncovered in unchanged areas of the software, as a result of the changes made. A scheme for the execution of test procedures.


Examples are inspection, technical review and walkthrough. See also performance testing, stress testing.

The percentage of decision outcomes that have been exercised by a test suite. The process of finding, analyzing and removing the causes of failures in software. A development lifecycle where a project is broken into a series of increments, each of which delivers a portion of the functionality in the overall project requirements. See also boundary value.
