When first adopting development testing, teams should establish a baseline of the state of their code quality, security and comprehensiveness of tests. They should then ensure that no new defects or gaps are introduced into the code base, and ensure all critical code from that point forward is free of defects and sufficiently tested. Teams should then create a plan to eliminate the legacy defects and backlog of critical code that is missing tests.

Time-to-market pressures are spawning new business requirements, as companies are driven to produce products in tighter timeframes and with lower budgets, yet with flawless functionality. Many are turning to development testing to complement traditional software testing methods, such as quality assurance (QA) testing and security audits – testing software code as it is written, to reduce development risks, time and costs.

In this slideshow, Dennis Chu, senior product manager for Coverity, outlines the 10 commandments of development testing.
