What You Learned in This Chapter
In this chapter, you learned:
TestFactory automatically maps an application and generates best scripts (which
cover the most code in the least number of steps) and defect scripts (which
reproduce any errors that TestFactory finds).
Use TestFactory starting early in the development cycle to test for reliability and to
discover severe defects in your application.
Use test suites to organize test scripts and to run them automatically as a group.
Developer testing tools include Purify (finds run-time memory errors),
PureCoverage (detects testing coverage), and Quantify (identifies performance
In the next chapter, you perform functional testing on the ClassicsCD.com
enhancement. You use Robot to create a script, include the script in an existing test
suite, run the test suite, and handle errors discovered by the tests.
