Greetings--

What sort of examples are used in the book? It seems like the book is focused more on the process involved. How much goes into specifics around things like how to construct tests, how to maintain and organize them, test coverage measures, what good or bad tests look like, what tools are most appropriate, and so on?

thanks,
Jeff L.

Hi Jeff,
We think the best part of the book is the many real life stories from real teams who contributed sidebars about how they approached a particular problem. For example, Declan Whelan contributed a sidebar on how to keep tests visible. Joe Yakich explains how his team evaluated test tools and settled on Selenium RC. Chris McMahon explains how growing their UI regression test automation by 500% allowed testers to do more significant work. Grig Gheorghiu gives some practical steps to accomplish security testing. Dierk Koenig explains how he organizes automated tests. Tae Chang explains how his team transitioned to agile. Alex Collino recounts pitfalls his team encountered in non-functional testing. These are just a few. Janet and I also give dozens and dozens of examples from our own teams. For example, I give an example of a Watir script that provides randomized test data for a csv file. Janet gives an example of a test plan that works for an agile project. We give examples of ways to size stories, ways to plan releases and iterations, how testers and programmers collaborate... The book is all about examples.
