Ten factors to consider for a successful regression test

The skill of regression testing is in identifying all unexpected changes before the system is released.

What is regression testing? Anybody who has spent a little time in software will have heard a developer say something along the lines of “Well the changes in my code have nothing to do with that side of the system so I can’t have caused the problem.” The skill of regression testing is in identifying all unexpected changes before the system is released; those deemed as errors can then be removed, thus ensuring the system has not regressed.

This is an extract from the start of a whitepaper titled “Top Ten Factors for a Successful Regression Test”, which takes you through the key factors that will ensure the best outcome – if all is as it should be and no defects have found their way through – then you have conducted a successful regression test.
