LUND UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES

A survey of unit testing practices

Runeson, Per LU orcid (2006) In IEEE Software 23(4). p.22-22
Abstract
Most companies and testing books use the term unit testing, but its semantics varies widely in different organizations. Lund University researchers launched a survey in 19 companies to explore variations in the term. The results indicate a common understanding of the scope of unit testing, although its aim and practices vary across companies. Practitioners can use the survey instruments as a baseline for measuring their unit testing practices and to start improvement initiatives.
