Implementing Assertions for Object-Oriented Systems
D Wallace, M Schmid, M Schatz, J Voas
The state-of-the-art in software testing is continually evolving. Researchers and practitioners are inventing techniques that improve the efficiency of software testing as well as increase the reliability of the products that are being tested. One technique that promises to further both of these goals is the use of executable assertions during validation and development. The correct use of assertions can lead to more through testing and reduced debugging effort. Assertions help to identify both the nature and location of programming errors, making it easier to make the necessary corrections to the code.
