eXtreme Programming's Unit Test Fixtures: Experience from the Field
Are you interested in adopting eXtreme Programming's (XP) unit test fixtures and related methods? Stan Bell shares his team's experiences with the Visual Basic version of the Xunit unit test framework. He then explains the methodology employed in the development shop, i.e., how engineers and QA analysts interacted prior to the application of this technique versus after. He points out the challenges, pitfalls, and successes encountered during the adoption process, and reports on the much-improved defect detection and correction rates that occurred post-adoption.
