I originally posted this on comp.software.testing before I realized all the discussion there had moved to this board.
I am currently taking a software testing course at Boston University, and have chosen to write a paper on the difficulties testing multi-site developed software. I am sure there are some papers already written about this topic, but I am not sure where to begin looking.
The heart of my paper will be about testing the new common installer developed at another site and used by the product I support. I would also like to cite references to other projects of a similar nature. The installer is not a 3rd party app, like InstallShield, so papers on testing 3rd party apps linking in with products under test will not help me.
Does anyone have papers they can recommend I look for as part of my research?
