Testing is a major cost factor in software development. Test automation has been proposed as one solution to reduce these costs. Test automation tools promise to increase the number of tests they run and the frequency at which they run them. So why not automate every test? In this paper we discuss the question "When should a test be automated?" and the(More)
— Software cockpits (software project control centers) provide systematic support for monitoring and controlling the activities in a software development project. Important aspects are to track progress, to visualize team performance, and to provide feedback about the quality of delivered results. Therefore , software cockpits integrate and visualize data(More)
The appropriate fulfillment of quality requirements of Web-based systems is essential for the success on the World Wide Web. Thus, in contrast to conventional software testing, where the focus is mainly on functionality, a wide range of quality issues are of utmost importance in testing Web-based systems. In this work, we present a systematic approach to(More)
In many development projects, testing has to be conducted under severe pressure due to limited resources and a challenging time schedule. Risk-based testing, which utilizes identified risks of the system for testing purposes, has a high potential to improve testing as it helps to optimize the allocation of resources and provides decision support for(More)
