Modern software development faces complex and frequently changing requirements.  As a result, the quality of the software often suffers, impacting the reliability, security, and reputation of the software product.  In this unit we examine the field of software testing including the role of testing throughout the software lifecycle, processes and standards for testing, and tools and technologies for testing and issue tracking.  The role of software testing in the overall process of software quality assurance is also considered.
