Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

  • Software testing foundations.
  • Design, deployment and usage of testing infrastructure.
  • The role of software testing within different software development processes.

Intended learning outcomes *

After a passed course, the student should be able to

  • use different testing libraries, from test harnesses (e.g. xUnit) to assertion libraries (e.g. Hamcrest, Assert4J),
  • setup and use infrastructure for parameterized tests, UI tests, monkey tests, fuzz tests,
  • use different metrics to assess the quality of a test suite (e.g. mutation score),
  • use and extend test data and test case generators,
  • setup and deploy continuous integration (e.g. Jenkins) and continuous testing in the context of DevOps

in order to

  • be able to design, implement and maintain industrial-grade software tests for object-oriented programs,
  • in the working life be able to work with DevOps.
