Hook-Test: An Aid to the Hook-Driven Test-First Development of Framework Based Application
Enhanced quality with reduced cost and reduced time-to-market is the primary goal of any software industry. Researchers and practitioners are trying to aspire it with many techniques. Object-oriented framework is the promising technology to promote reuse, thus realizing desired goal. Inherently complex design and large size of a framework make it difficult to understand the framework, thus inhibit the purpose of reuse of framework. Conventionally, test is performed after the implementation phase of the waterfall model and any fault detection at this stage is a very costly affair. In this paper, the authors are introducing Hook-Test document to assist in test-first development approach of instantiation of framework known as Hook-Driven Test-First Development (HDTFD) of framework based application.
