What is Testware?

As we know that hardware development engineers produce hardware. Software development engineers produce software. Same like this, Software test engineers produce testware.

Testware is produced by both verification and validation testing methods. Testware includes test cases, test plan, test report and etc. Like software, testware should be placed under the control of a configuration management system, saved, faithfully maintained.

Like software, the testware has significant value because it can be reused.The tester’s job is to create testware that is going to have a specified lifetime and is valuable asset to the company.

Other than test cases, test plan, test reports, automation tools, scripts, defect repositories, the following items can be included in testware:
1) Testing frameworks
2) Object repositories/ maps of applications
3) Past test metrics (from the same project or similar previous projects
4) Answers to common queries
5) Lessons learned in previous test cycles
