What is TDD?
• Software Development Process
• TDD is a process of continual low-level regression testing.
• Based on requirement and pre-written test cases
Common TDD misconception
• TDD is not about testing
• TDD is about design and development
• By testing first you design your code
• Better understanding of what you're going to write
• Enforces the policy of writing tests a little better
• Speeds up development
• Regression testing = Stable software = Quality software
The following sequence is based on IEEE
Paper Test-Driven Development
• Add Test:-In test-driven development, each new feature begins with writing
• Run all tests and see if the new one fails:- This validates that the test case
is working correctly and that the new test does not mistakenly pass without
requiring any new code.
• Write some code:-The next step is to write some code that causes the test to
• Run tests:-If all test cases now pass, the programmer can be confident that the
code meets all the tested requirements
• Refactor code:-Now the code should be cleaned up as necessary. Move code
from where it was convenient for passing the test to where it logically belongs
• Repeat:-Starting with another new test, the cycle is then repeated to push forward
• Test Structure:-Effective layout of a test case ensures all required actions
are completed:-Setup , Execution ,Validation , Cleanup
• Individual Best Practices:-Separate Common Setup And Get Team Review
Your test , Design Time Allow to execution non-real operating system
