Abstract

In this paper we present an integrated approach to systematic and documented software product testing applied by the Center for Software Testing and Quality Evaluation (SofTest) within the Research Institute for Informatics (ICI).

The testing process is composed of a sequence of phases and activities and a set of software tools which assist the different testing tasks to be achieved. The testing process and test documents used are based on the IEEE software testing standards. This testing approach was used until now only for MS Windows applications supported by the softw
