I want to know what steps should be taken care of Release process??
Release process is something like we are giving new functionality to the client.So before releasing the new functionality, there is some process that needs to be followed.
So tell me what are the these processes??
I guess the release process should have been decided during the engineering process.
After the engineering and testing phase of the product one should do some basic release testing on any product.
Release testing is the phase where in u test ur product against the business case that resulted in the development of the product .
Some basic things to be done are in release testing are load testing, conformance , compatibility etc.
There are too many steps involved in a Release Process to document them all here. It involves more than testing - it would be like documenting an entire Software Development Lifecycle in one post.
You need more knowledge than is available here; a training class or reading some books would be helpful. Or if you have some specific questions in regards to one certain aspect of the release process, come back and ask those.
It is difficult to answer such a broad-based question.
Around here release testing involves
a)extensive and rigorous bug hunting and killing phase
b)compiling the final release build and putting it on a cd
c) testing the CD to make sure it was put together properly
d) virusscanning the cd
e) producing the cd in the quantity that you need it in for sales
whole thing takes around.. 3 months or so
Dont force me to hit you with the motivational stick again.
