IEEE/ISO/IEC 29119-3-2021 - IEEE/ISO/IEC International Standard for Software and systems engineering--Software testing--Part 3:Test documentation
The purpose of the ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119 series of software testing standards is to define an internationally-agreed set of standards for software testing that can be used by any organization when performing any form of software testing. ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-3 includes templates and examples of test documentation. The templates are arranged within clauses reflecting the overall test process description structure in ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-2, i.e. by the test process in which they are being produced. Annex A outlines the contents of each document and maps each document to ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-2. Annex B contains an overview of the examples. Annexes C to R contain examples of the application of the templates. Annex S provides mappings to existing standards. Annex T explains the use of the term Test Model in this document. The Bibliography for this part of ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119 is at the end of the document. ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-3 supports dynamic testing, functional and non-functional testing, manual and automated testing, and scripted and unscripted testing. The documentation templates defined in ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-3 can be used in conjunction with any software development lifecycle model.
IEEE/ISO/IEC 29119-4-2021 - IEEE/ISO/IEC International Standard - Software and systems engineering--Software testing--Part 4: Test techniques
The purpose of this part of ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119 is to provide an International Standard that defines software test design techniques (also known as test case design techniques or test methods) that can be used within the test design and implementation process that is defined in ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-2. This part of ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119 does not describe a process for test design and implementation; instead, it describes a set of techniques that can be used within the test design and implementation process defined in ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-2. The intent is to describe a series of techniques that have wide acceptance in the software testing industry. The test design techniques presented in this part of ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119 can be used to derive test cases that, when executed, generate evidence that test item requirements have been met or that defects are present in a test item (i.e. that requirements have not been met). Risk-based testing could be used to determine the set of techniques that are applicable in specific (risk-based testing is covered in ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-1 and ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-2).
