Applying a Java Unit Testing Framework  
(October 5, 2006)
Most software developers have heard about the benefits of Java unit testing frameworks, and may have implemented unit testing at a previous job; but tight schedules leave little time for such initiatives; and isn't it Quality Assurance's job to identify bugs?

The Case for Code Quality Management  
(June 28, 2006)
For managers who are overseeing Java™ development teams, maintaining consistent coding standards and practices is a monumental challenge. Missed deadlines, reports of problems in the field and constant bug fixes are all symptoms of poor coding standards and practices. Fortunately, comprehensive code quality management applications are emerging that bring proven process standards to the development cycle, enabling managers to enforce code quality and track issues back to specific developers. By enforcing quality standards, problems can be proactively identified before applications are released, dramatically simplifying the development manager's job. This paper will examine the challenges faced by development managers and introduce how code quality management solutions that employ code Precision Team Management - bring needed order to Java development teams.

The Software Quality Needs of Java Development Managers  
(October 5, 2006)
The following recaps a custom research study among Java software development managers (a group that has great influence but has been historically under-researched). The study found that the overriding issue, with regards to code quality, frustrating these managers is their ability - or inability - to minimize software failures/bugs in code before release. This is followed by secondary concerns over not tracking quality early enough in a project's development path, the need for clear and well-defined metrics, inefficient use of time reviewing code, and the inability to track individual developer's performance. Managers want a quality measurement system that will institute solid quality metrics, help them track and train new hires, and work with their existing toolsets.

Coaching Your Team for Better Code Quality Management  
(October 5, 2006)
Software bugs are epidemic. In 2005, the Hudson Bay Company in Canada had software errors in their inventory system that contributed to a $33.3 million loss. In 2004, the UK's Department of Inland Revenue experienced software errors that resulted in a $3.45 billion tax-credit over payment.1 It seems to be happening everywhere-but who or what is to blame?

Elevating Code Quality  
(June 28, 2006)
Monitoring and measuring code quality consistently from start to finish - beginning with definition of requirements and on into deployment - keeps quality efforts focused across the entire application development life cycle. Managers who consistently track and analyze metrics and progress reach higher levels of quality. The key to improving poor code quality is monitoring, measuring and modifying development team behaviors.

Process & Visibility  
(June 28, 2006)
Today's business applications are measured in millions of lines of code-not just thousands. As a result, it is more important than ever to build the quality into a Java application from the start, rather than trying to track down bugs later. When code quality starts to slip, deadlines are missed, maintenance time increases, and return on investment is lost.

Software Integrity  
(June 28, 2006)
Without software integrity, companies lose credibility and risk financial loss due to software errors and bugs. Instead of focusing on innovative solutions for changing market conditions, developers are bogged down with maintenance issues. This loss of agility eliminates competitive advantage. Implementing a code quality mindset early in the application development lifecycle will improve software integrity, promote innovation and boost customer satisfaction.

Java Development Managers Stress the Need to Improve Software Quality  
(by Nigel Cheshire)
We've all experienced it - the 'get it out the door' mentality that seems to be the driving force behind many software application deliveries - a prime example of the software industry's immaturity that favors completion over quality, and an end user's preference for hot new features over stable, reliable systems. Deferring the QA process is an expensive way to operate and corporations are taking a financial hit for these software errors. According to the Washington, D.C., National Institute of Standards and Testing (NIST), software errors cost the U.S. economy $60 billion per year. This report was issued back in 2002 and, since then, the software industry has done little to improve the situation.
