Application Lifecycle ManagementWhat is it & why is it useful?

Application lifecycle management (ALM) regards the process of delivering software as a continuously repeating cycle of inter-related steps: definition, design, development, testing, deployment and management.

Change

Requests

“ALM solutions are integrated tool sets that support and unite the following lifecycle activities: requirements management, design and modeling, development, software configuration management (SCM), and testing.”

Developers / Lead Developers


Developers / Lead Developers Unit Tests and Code Coverage

  • How to be sure that individual method or function works correctly?

    • Create an application? No!

    • Prove production code works Unit Tests

  • How to be sure that all cases have been tested?

    • Determine effectiveness of unit tests  Code Coverage

      • Two views:

        • Summary

        • Code Highlight


See easily Tests Results
