CSA ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-4:22
Software and systems engineering — Software testing — Part 4: Test techniques (Adopted ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-4:2021, second edition, 2021-10)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC.
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CSA ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-4 throughout.
This Standard supersedes CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-4:16 (adopted ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-4:2015).
The International Standard was reviewed by the CSA TCIT under the jurisdiction of the CSA Strategic Steering Committee on Information and Communications Technology and deemed acceptable for use in Canada. This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document defines test design techniques that can be used during the test design and implementation process that is defined in ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-2.
Each technique follows the test design and implementation process that is defined in ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-2 and shown in Figure 1. This document is intended for, but not limited to, testers, test managers, and developers, particularly those responsible for managing and implementing software testing.
