Agile Testing: which testing phase?

Hi,

Is this book aimed at unit, integration or QA type testing?

I'm particularly interested to know if this book will tell me how to implement automated testing?

Specifically does the book tackle how you would test a typical MVC style web application?

Regards

Paul

According to the table of contents, it makes the distinction between business-facing and technology-facing tests. It also seems to be targeted at testers (as a role), so I'd guess that it's not about programmer (unit) tests.

Part IV seems to be solely about automation.

While we discuss technology-facing tests that support the team such as unit and component testing, our focus is on business-facing tests that support the team, helping to guide development, and critique the product. We also address technology-facing tests that critique the product such as load and 'ility' testing. We have a section on automation that describes common barriers to automation, and how to overcome those with a good automation strategy. We explain good ways to evaluate and select tools, and give some examples of some tools, but the tool world is changing way too fast to put specifics in a book like this, so we have a bibliography with references to other resources to learn more about that.

We give a lot of examples related to testing a MVC style web app because that's mostly what I work on myself. But this is not a "how to test" book so much as "how to get testing done successfully in an agile project and deliver good business value for the customers". There's a lot of emphasis on how to communicate and collaborate, and take a whole-team approach to testing.
