You're Doing It Wrong - I got on a conference call for our latest software release. The new project manager asked the test team to verify a bunch of tickets. A bunch came out fai...
This year we added three more test cases. So the test code was modified to produce three more positive test cases worth of data. Things were looking good. I had a long standing action item to create data for a whole separate path that the program sometimes takes. This resulted in a new slew of tests.
At first I had some trouble generating the test data for the new scenarios. But I dug down and determined what I needed to change to get everything set up. I pretty much based the data creation on the existing routines to produce data for the existing scenarios. I was happy when the task was complete.
I decided to do a round of regression tests to make sure the original test scenarios still worked. Ooops. Looks like I broke half of them. Good thing I have an easy way to run the whole suite of tests for the original scenario. But now I got to big back in to ensure the new and old unit test scenarios are correctly served.
