A Business Context for Acceptance Testing

Apr 20 2010 (6:30 PM - 8:30 PM)


Software testers in development and QA groups are often asked to participate in Acceptance Testing in various ways, including:

Helping SMEs and users write acceptance tests
Reviewing acceptance tests
Analyzing anomalies found during acceptance testing
What is a good way to approach acceptance testing? How does it differ from integration and system testing? Context diagrams and business events look at the system from the point of view of the business and help ensure that the business requirements are tested.
