1 manual testing

1. Manual Testing

  • + easy & cheap to start

  • + flexible testing

  • expensive every execution

  • no auto regression testing

  • ad-hoc coverage

  • no coverage measurement


2 capture replay testing

2. Capture-Replay Testing

  • + flexible testing

  • expensive first execution

  • + auto regression testing

  • - fragile tests break easily

  • ad-hoc coverage

  • no coverage measurement


3 script based testing

3. Script-Based Testing

  • +/- test impl. = programming

  • + automatic execution

  • + auto regression testing

  • fragile tests break easily?

  • (depends on abstraction)

  • ad-hoc coverage

  • no coverage measurement


4 keyword driven testing

4. Keyword-Driven Testing

  • + abstract tests

  • + automatic execution

  • + auto regression testing

  • robust tests

  • ad-hoc coverage

  • no coverage measurement


5 model based testing

5. Model-Based Testing

+ abstract tests

+ automatic execution

+ auto regression testing

+ auto design of tests

+ systematic coverage

+ measure coverage of model and requirements

- modelling overhead
