Acceptance Testing Application Behavior
How do you ensure your applications meet the expectations of your key customers? In this session we will explore using the FIT tool and Behavior Driven Design tools to do exactly this.
Unit Testing helps you, the programmer, verify your application meets and continues to meet your expectations. But how do you ensure that your application meets and continues to meet the real expectations, those of your domain experts and key customers? We will take a look at two distinct approaches for customer acceptance testing. We will take a look at using FIT for testing behavior and at Behavior Driven Design tools and techniques. Both these approaches can helps us create what is called executable documentation and to stay sane in the world of changing requirements and evolutionary design.
