Regression Testing


A regression testing heuristic.

  • Recent: new features, new areas of code are more vulnerable

  • Core: essential functions must continue to work

  • Risk: some areas of an application pose more risk

  • Configuration sensitive: code that’s dependent on environment settings can be vulnerable

  • Repaired: bug fixes can introduce new issues

  • Chronic: some areas in an application may be perpetually sensitive to breaking
