Equipment of runtime in a tester's arsenal
In the process of testing, especially if one has to test many products
immediately, the QA team faces the fact that functional automatic and manual tests
cannot often detect some problems hidden within an undeveloped program logic.
In addition, the development sometimes has to spend much time for searching
the cause of break-down of functional tests in the code.
In this report an original approach of run-time environment change is proposed
to solve these problems, either runtime Java or the .NET to collect extended data
about execution of the tested program without making any changes to the program
The offered solution firstly allows to control non-off-nominal conditions of
program execution. Secondly, it gives the development the detailed context of the
problem, which accelerates search of its emergence cause and, thirdly, this
approach is suited for the revelation of difficult problems in the production
