Your application codebase is over 500k lines of code. It runs on a closed network with multiple operator stations. It provides real-time situational awareness in a tactical military environment. It interfaces with more real-time hardware devices than you have fingers. It pulls in data feeds from multiple, disparate feeds in multiple formats. Most of the functionality in your application has to be visually verified. It takes 6 man-weeks to fully regression test your application. Your customer needs you to have rapid turnaround on new releases and patches. That's a chaotic environment. There has to be a way to successfully develop, test, and deliver even in that kind of environment. We will walk through the various paradigms for testing (developer and QA) and look at which ones make sense in a chaotic environment. We will also look at ways that developers can infuse their application framework with functionality that allows for 'semi-automated' testing setting the stage for full scripting.
