Software Quality Assurance for the PTV xServer Product Line –
a Report from the Trenches

Suppose you have to build a family of software components that offers extensive functionality, is easy to integrate into many different frameworks, runs in different environments and is backwards-compatible as long as technically possible while at the same time moving with the markets and technologies. You would need to have half a dozen expert teams collaborating to create this solution and have to support scores of international customers.

As you will surely already have guessed, all these conditions apply to PTV xServer. So how can we create and maintain a high-quality product under these circumstances?

As part of our new series of articles on  “Software Quality Assurance” we have compiled detailed information on this issue that we would like to share with you. In this context, we will take a closer look at:

  • What exactly do we mean by quality?
