Reviews and Testimonials
In this overview for researchers, practitioners, managers, and students, international contributors in computer science, software testing, and information technology examine software testing in the cloud (STITC) from different perspectives, presenting case studies and experience reports. Major themes include migrating testing to the cloud, using a cloud computing infrastructure for testing in a virtualized environment, and testing applications that are hosted and deployed in a cloud environment. Some specific topics include leveraging the cloud for large-scale software testing, cloud scalability measurement and testing, and building a cloud-based mobile application testbed. With material on issues such as balancing the value and risks of cloud computing, the book will be useful as an overview for those new to the field, as well as more experienced practitioners. Several chapters are updated versions of papers presented at the April 2010 IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification, and Validation.
