Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Aimed at software test managers and testers, this work presents methods, techniques, and tools for testing e-business systems. The focus is on identifying a project's relevant risks and homing in on the risks of most concern. After exploring the relationship between risk management, risks, and the testing process, Gerrard (technical director, Systeme Evolutif, Ltd., London, England) and Thompson (director, Thompson Information Systems Consulting Ltd., Surrey, England) explain the types of failures that e-business systems are prone to. Finally 24 techniques for testing are presented alongside lists of relevant tools and references and a discussion of post- deployment monitoring. Annotation c.
