Current Advances on Aligning RE and Testing
Requirements Engineering and Testing are both important areas within software engineering, each with their research communities and set of practitioners. The coordination of these two fields affects the efficiency and the effectiveness of the entire software development cycle and its lead time, making this an important topic from a business perspective. While much work has been done in the respective fields of Requirements Engineering (RE) and Testing, there exists much more that can be done to increase the connection between them. To reduce this gap between RE and testing, this talk presents recent approaches using defect taxonomies and domain specific languages to align RE and testing activities. We first present the approaches and then empirical results showing increased efficiency and effectiveness of system testing as a consequence of applying defect taxonomies and domain specific languages to align RE and testing.
