Mapping software testing practice with software testing research—SERP-test taxonomy

Engström, Emelie LU and Peterson, Kai (2015) Software Testing, Verification and Validation Workshops (ICSTW), 2015 IEEE Eighth International Conference on In International conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation Workshops
Abstract
There is a gap between software testing research and practice. One reason is the discrepancy between how testing research is reported and how testing challenges are perceived in industry. We propose the SERP-test taxonomy to structure information on testing interventions and practical testing challenges from a common perspective and thus bridge the communication gap. To develop the taxonomy we follow a systematic incremental approach. The SERP-test taxonomy may be used by both researchers and practitioners to classify and search for testing challenges or interventions. The SERP-test taxonomy also supports comparison of testing interventions by providing an instrument for assessing the distance between them and thus identify relevant points... (More)
