Computer Science and Technology: Validation, Verification, and Testing for the Individual Programmer.
Branstad, Martha A.; And Others
Guidelines are given for program testing and verification to ensure quality software for the programmer working alone in a computing environment with limited resources. The emphasis is on verification as an integral part of the software development. Guidance includes developing and planning testing as well as the application of other verification techniques at each lifecycle stage. Relying upon neither automated tools nor formal quality assurance support, the guidelines should be appropriate for applications programmers doing small development projects. A brief bibliography is provided as an entry into the field of verification, validation, and testing. (Author/BK)
