Requirements and Boundary Conditions for Testing

Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 245)


In this chapter we derive and identify all the pertinent facts and principles that one has to keep in mind when testing a distributed real-time system. These facts then serve as requirements or “boundary conditions” for the development of a suitable test methodology, as well as for the design of support tools for this methodology. In general, there are three main areas where requirements might stem from, namely sound software engineering (including testing) principles and practice, the distributed nature of the systems considered, and the real-time requirements of the systems. Each of these areas is discussed in turn.
