By: Carey Schwaber with Carl Zetie and Michael Gavin
Most development shops understand that the cost of repairing a defect increases exponentially as the application proceeds through the life cycle. But fewer shops know what they can do to identify defects early on. To improve the quality of their code even before formal testing begins, developers can perform unit testing, static analysis, performance analysis, and security testing. Full-featured integrated development environments (IDEs) include much – but not all – of the functionality that developers will need to accomplish these tasks.
