Parasoft can help you optimize your testing efforts by automatically identifying the test cases directly related to your most recent source code modifications. You can then rerun only the impacted test cases rather than retest the entire system after each modification. Parasoft's change-based testing solution is enabled through Parasoft DTP, which collects and correlates development and testing data. You can process the data with DTP extensions that execute custom calculations, trigger workflows, and perform other intelligent analytic processes.
In this section:
Parasoft DTP can monitor which source code is exercised when a test executes, then correlate that source code with the appropriate task, requirement, or defect.
To do this, you need to:
You can also review Parasoft's Application Coverage workflow for additional information.
If you are correlating code via test case execution (as described above) no additional configuration is necessary.
You can extend DTP with custom tools from the Parasoft Marketplace, such as the Change Based Testing DTP Workflow, to help you determine when retesting is required. The high-level process is:
