Testing Custom Applications

Testing Custom Applications

For custom applications, you need a more extensive testing strategy than for pretested commercial applications.

The Windows Application Compatibility Toolkit can help you develop a test plan, even for applications that were not developed internally. The test plan offers ideas about functional areas to test. To download the specification and test plan required for application certification from the MSDN Web site, see the Windows Vista Application Specification link on the Web Resources page at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/reskits/webresources.

The MSDN Web site also contains information about testing, such as white papers about exploratory testing and the methods that independent testing organizations use to test applications that vendors submit for certification.
