Issue summary
The environment where the Software Under Test (SUT) has to run is complex

Category
Design

Examples
The problem range is:
  1. Different systems (hardware or software) that interact in some way.
  2. Test data is hard to create due to the number of systems involved or a limited refresh cycle.
  3. You have to simulate some hardware

Questions
Where does the complexity lie? In preparing the initial conditions? Test execution? Checking the results? Dependencies?
How do you collect the necessary data?

Resolving Patterns
Most recommended:
  • DO A PILOT: use this pattern to find out what the problems are and ways to tackle them
  • TAKE SMALL STEPS: use this pattern to break up the problems in more chewable chunks
  • THINK OUT-OF-THE-BOX: try to look at the problem from unusual viewpoints


Other useful patterns:
