Abstract

Production and test code co-evolution is known to result in high quality, maintainable, more sustainable software artifacts. This report discusses the challenges and experiences obtained in the transformation from a traditional development process, where most of the testing has been conducted manually and in a subsequent development step, to an agile development process that enforces a certain number of test code coverage by automated tests. Within an industrial project we analyze the deviations from the aimed co-evolution path by means of customized visualizations and list and discuss the observed challenges.
