Abstract—This paper introduces AcceptSoftware which is a tool to easily create and run client readable acceptance tests, and describes how it can be used to allow a simple but powerful acceptance-test driven software development. We then describe our AcceptSoftware tool that extends EasyAccept by maintaining a history of acceptance test results. Based on the history, AcceptSoftware is able to generate reports that show when an acceptance test is suddenly failing again.
Index Terms—Software testing, acceptance test, ATDD, test-driven development.
