TA2: Automated Random Tests in a Marketplace Systems

Andrew GillisLars Wahlberg, Aguil

A marketplace system supports automatic matching of incoming orders in real time and determines trades and order events. The ramifications associated with a failure in this type of system could be catastrophic, thus a strong, reliable and robust testing strategy is a critical component to its successful delivery. This presentation will describe combat proven test strategies that have been used for marketplace systems that would also prove useful for other high priority systems. Strategies including the implementation of extensive functional tests that were largely automated, random tests for stability, performance tests as well as redundancy tests. Also learn how manual exploratory testing and defect analysis are included to round out the overall test strategy.
