Abstract:In general, the software testing-efforts which are spent in large-scale software development account for a half of the total amount of the development effort. Therefore, the management of fault-detection and fault-correction activities in the testing phase is very important to efficiently and economically develop a highly-reliable software product. In this paper, a software management tool which aids the quality/reliability assessment and testing-progress control in the testing phase is developed. This tool consists of several sub-systems that analyze software fault-detection data and assess software quality/reliability and testing-progress based on adopted software reliability growth models. Also, we use JAVA language to implement the tool. The JAVA language is widely known as an object-oriented and platform-free programming language. These characteristics are suitable for constructing our tool, because the tool will be revised to adopt new software reliability growth models and/or new testing-control techniques.
