When I found a bug, i must report this bug on the bug tracker, so t???he developer team will see it. Sometime, I can specify the error type of the bug found, but sometime, i cannot.
Could you please let me know some definition about error type (maybe bug types). And if you can, could you please give examples on each error type, so i can understand them clearly and in what case the bug type will be occurred?
Now, I know some error types but only the name, not clear more about them. So please explain more about them.
Some error types as the following:
- Error handing
- Feature request
Might be refering to Boris Beizer "software testing techniques. According to "A practitioner's guide to software test design" by lee copeland (which also contains other taxonomies) Beizer's taxonomie "defines a four-level classification of software defects." On the first level there are 8 classes:
2xxx Features and functionality
3xxx structural bugs
5xxx implementation and coding
7xxx system and software architecture
8xxx test definition and execution
another source according to "A practitioner's guide to software test design" by lee copeland might be "Testing Computer Software" by Kaner, Falk and Nguyen. It "contains a detailed taxonomy consisting of over 400 types of defects."
... Or why not simply read what was previously supplied along with Boris Beizer's Taxonomy on Bugs for a complete list as opposed to piecemeal pieces here? Either way requires reading - piecemeal here or the works of Boris Beizer. [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
