Abstract

Object oriented technology is still growing and has not yet matured. Many articles have been written on object oriented software development processes, particularly in the area of testing. Most of the publications seem to agree with the fact that object oriented testing is a challenging aspect of the software development process. The main reason for this view seems to revolve around the fact that the objects and the code are inseparable and also, the idea of inheritance. Despite these views, the publications all seem to agree on one aspect, that object oriented when successfully tested leaves a better-maintained product compared to the traditional non-object oriented software. Object oriented software makes better maintainable software; it also has an added advantage over traditional software development because in the final analysis, it will cost less by shortening the development time as well as cutting down the cost of maintenance.
