Question description

Static testing is a testing procedure in which a software application is tested without code execution. Code developed for the software application will not be executed. And this static testing is very valuable within organizations that adopt agile software development methodologies because it has two main parts Review and Static analysis. In first part Review, documents related to design, requirements, procedures, test cases and etc will be reviewed to eliminate errors. And in the second part Static analysis, the code developed will be tested without executing the code to detect structural defects which leads to affect the overall efficiency of the application. According to ISTQB website the important characteristics of agile software are “Other than software code, static analysis can also be carried out on things like, static analysis of requirements or static analysis of websites (for example, to assess for proper use of accessibility tags or the following of HTML standards). Static analysis tools for code can help the developers to understand the structure of the code, and can also be used to enforce coding standards.”  Along with these Code structure, Code metrics and code standards are also some important characteristics of agile software. And the characteristics software application which has any structural defects, or any initial errors in design or requirements are examples which are not agile.
