8 principles of Agile Testing
Agile Testing includes various different principles that help us to increase the productivity of our software.
- Constant response
- Less documentation
- Continuous Testing
- Customer Satisfaction
- Easy and clean code
- Involvement of the entire team
- Quick feedback
For our better understanding, let's see them one by one in detail:
1. Constant Response
The implementation of Agile testing delivers a response or feedback on an ongoing basis. Therefore, our product can meet the business needs.
In other words, we can say that the Product and business requirements are understood throughout the constant response.
2. Less Documentation
The execution of agile testing requires less documentation as the Agile teams or all the test engineers use a reusable specification or a checklist. And the team emphases the test rather than the secondary information.
3. Continuous Testing
The agile test engineers execute the testing endlessly as this is the only technique to make sure that the constant improvement of the product.
4. Customer Satisfaction
In any project delivery, customer satisfaction is important as the customers are exposed to their product throughout the development process.
As the development phase progresses, the customer can easily modify and update requirements. And the tests can also be changed as per the updated requirements.
5. Easy and clean code
When the bugs or defects occurred by the agile team or the testing team are fixed in a similar iteration, which leads us to get the easy and clean code.
6. Involvement of the entire team
As we know that, the testing team is the only team who is responsible for a testing process in the Software Development Life Cycle. But on the other hand, in agile testing, the business analysts (BA) and the developers can also test the application or the software.
While doing the agile testing, we need to execute the testing process during the implementation that helps us to decrease the development time. However, the testing is implemented after implementation or when the software is developed in the traditional process.
8. Quick response
In each iteration of agile testing, the business team is involved. Therefore, we can get continuous feedback that helps us to reduces the time of feedback response on development work.
