Systematic Testing

In addition to our freeform exploratory testing effort, we also engage in systematic testing efforts designed to achieve the test coverage necessary to make release decisions around future releases, much like past releases.

Systematic testing consists of several basic tasks:

  • Reviewing a test plan.
  • Writing the test cases, if needed.
  • Executing the test cases and recording test results.
    • To record results on a particular test case page, click on the "Edit with form" button in the top of the page, and use the "Add Another" button just above the "Add New Results" section (i.e. at the bottom of the page).
  • Contributing patches to the Tinderbox or Sugarbot automated testing platforms.

Test 1: Multiple Key Support

We are particularly interested, this week, in systematically testing OFW's new multiple key support.
