COSMOS QA i11 Activities
COSMOS QA Activities for i11 (Quality and Extensibility)
This has been put together to address Bugzilla ER 232764.
For all these activities, test execution has been tracked over http://wiki.eclipse.org/COSMOS_i11_QA_Phase_Execution
The terminologies/acronyms below are commonly used throughout this document. The list below defines each term regarding how it is used in this document.
|Quality Expectations||Is a statement of some behaviour, characteristic or operational facility that a product must exhibit for it to be deemed ‘fit for purpose’. Quality expectations are normally grouped into four main categories: functional/behavioural, operational efficiency, inter operability factors; and admin/management factors (to control TCO).|
|Acceptance Criteria||This is a quantification of how a quality expectation is to be validated. For functional/behavioural quality expectations this is a simple Boolean test – it either works or it doesn’t. Hence, for most scope docs there is no need to specifically define functional acceptance criteria. However, other types of quality expectations – especially performance related areas – do require specific acceptance criteria because the quantification is normally some form of numeric threshold (with optional margin/tolerance) that states minimum levels of acceptable operational efficiency.|
The COSMOS quality expectations and the matching acceptance criteria, that would serve as a preamble to the COSMOS QA team while executing their work, were completed via ER 214576.
QA Scope for i11 testing:
- E2E testing on Windows XP, 2003 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 5.0 (http://wiki.eclipse.org/COSMOS_DEMO_i11)
- i11 ERs – JUnits/Manual Tests inspection (http://wiki.eclipse.org/Cosmos1.0Features#Iteration_11_Enhancements)
- Data Visualization TPTP Manual Tests Execution (DataVisualization.UI.Component.Widget.testsuite / UI.Reports.testsuite)
- Execution of i11 supplement e2e tests(negative) from QA.
- MDR Toolkit and SML Tooling tests
- Basic operational efficiency tests (limited performance tests)
In scope i11 ERs
Please refer to http://wiki.eclipse.org/COSMOS/COSMOS_iteration_i11_plan (OR)http://wiki.eclipse.org/Cosmos1.0Features#Iteration_11_Enhancements for the list of ERs that QA will need to test as part of the i11 testing phase that runs from June 16 thru 27th June 2008.
In scope platforms, OS's & configurations
For i11, QA will certify the following platforms:
- Microsoft Windows XP SP2
- Micorsoft Windows 2003 Server SP1
- RedHat Linux Enterprise Server 5.0 (Smoke test/Limited End2End testing only)
For i11, QA will use following softwares:
- Tomcat 5.5.25 & Axis2 1.3
- SUN JDK 1.5.0_15
- Firefox version (126.96.36.199)
- Internet Explorer (6.0.2900.2180.XP SP2)
- Eclipse 3.4
- DOJO 1.0.2
- BIRT 2.3
Iteration QA Entrance and Exit Criteria
The following items need to be in place before the 2 weeks i11 QA phase can commence:
- A stable i11 build that has undergone multiple integration build during the course of the Development phase which ends on June 13, 2008
- The wiki page http://wiki.eclipse.org/COSMOS_DEMO_i11 is completed (by Development)
The following items need to be in place before the 3 week i11 QA phase can be declared complete:
- All ERs should have JUnits or a manual TPTP test in place. If JUnits are not applicable to a given ER, alternative verification means need to be specified. To reiterate, QA is not expected to run the JUnits. In i11, this activity will be completed as part of the weekly iteration builds. In future, this will be fully automated once ER 215135 is completed.
- The e2e tests for i11 (http://wiki.eclipse.org/COSMOS_DEMO_i11) are run against the final i11 build

Resources & timeframe
i11 QA will be completed by two dedicated CA resources. The i11 QA phase will run from June 16 thru 27th June 2008 (2 weeks).
This section includes the tasks required to complete this enhancement.
- Srinivas Reddy has generated this page to address bugzilla 232764
- The COSMOS team needs to review the relevant sections for this page.
- Srinivas, representing the QA team, is supposed to complete this activity by June 06, 2008. This is prior to the commencement of the QA phase for i11.
All reviewer feedback should go in the Talk page for 232764 "Define scope and detail the i11 QA activities".
