Can you execute your entire test suite successfully on the first try? Great, then you do not need regression testing. Now, for the rest of us, we need to perform regression testing to ensure the functions and features that worked before the enhancement or bug fix will continue to work after the change is implemented. Regression testing is universal. It applies to all software development lifecycles – from traditional waterfall to continuous build and deployment and everything in between. Using risk based principles you can identify the test cases to include in your regression test suite for proper test coverage. Join Diane as she explains how to plan for and build out a proper regression test suite, while staying on time and in budget.
