Structured Testing for Multimedia Authoring

Simon Price, Structured Testing for Multimedia Authoring. European Conference on Software Testing Analysis and Reviews, RAI, Amsterdam. December 1996. No electronic version available.


This paper describes one approach to improving the testing practices of non-specialist multimedia developers through the addition of test support functions to a popular commercial authoring tool - Multimedia ToolBook. In common with other mainstream authoring tools, ToolBook has no in-built support for testing (save the inclusion of a simple debugger). The ToolBook extensions described here are intended to encourage non-specialist authors to adopt a more structured approach to testing their software. Similar extensions could equally well be developed to perform the same task in other multi media authoring tools or in Internet authoring tools.
