Abstract [en]

Software testing is the most important process to verify the quality of a product. Software testing in Agile development is very complex and controversial issue in literature and industry. Different people have different views about software testing in Agile methods, because most of Agile methods do not focus much on software testing activities. Agile strongly focus on the close customer collaboration, short iterations and frequent deliveries. But when it comes to software testing, then it is challenging, as Agile do not include many destructive testing practices, which are normally required for a quality product. This thesis covers the area of software testing process in Agile development. Agile development processes could be more beneficial and refined by adding testing practices and for this purpose; we proposed a concept of an independent integrated software testing team. This research also identifies the practices of Agile development in industry and the critical issues in industry while practicing Agile development. The issues of automated and manual testing, good practices in automation, and how to manage independent testing teams in Agile development are also high lightened. This report highlights every aspect of software testing process in Agile development. This research is based on literature reviews and an industrial survey.
