PROVIDING FACILITIES FOR THE USE OF TDD IN PRACTICE

Vinícius Pereira, Antonio Francisco do Prado

Abstract

In this paper we describe an approach that provides a way to facilitate the use of TDD in the practice of Web application development, independent of the development process used. As an example, it is presented a way of integrating the functional testing (on level of acceptance) in the Scrum process. The functional tests are constructed to test the User Stories, which represent the software requirements specified in the Product Backlog according to the Scrum. The approach is divided into three stages: Tests Specification, Functional Tests Construction and Tests Driven Implementation. An example of social application illustrates the use of the proposed approach.
