Regression testingby jplindstrom (Monsignor)
|on Sep 26, 2000 at 16:44 UTC||Need Help??|
jplindstrom has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I just decided I need to start using regression testing. (I redefined a method in a subclass and missed that the method was already redefined with a different behaviour than I thought. Oops!).
I don't know so much about it except the purpose: catching the moment when you introduce bugs in previously working code.
The problem I'm facing right now is that all examples I have seen so far are pretty simple.
I want to test not only single modules, but a group of objects working together. On their own they are fairly simple, but together and with various input their behaviour is more complex. I simply have a hard time finding things to pinpoint for testing.
Any ideas? Gotchas? Lessons learned?
Of course, URLs and books are nice too :)
