Agile SDLC model
What is the Agile SDLC model?
Agile is the most popular and widely used software development framework. The main aim of the Agile SDLC model is to facilitate faster project completion. It is a combination of iterative & incremental process models. In the agile model, the software develops in multiple iterations or sprints, and at a time, one iteration is planned, developed, tested, and deployed to the customers.
The developers concentrate on the high priority requirements in the first iteration and then deploy to the customers. Based on the customer’s feedback, the requirements are enhanced/modified in further iterations. This process repeats until the achievement of the final desired quality product. Generally, one sprint or iteration lasts for about 2-8 weeks.
Steps involved in the agile SDLC model are:
Popularly known Agile Methodologies are eXtreme Programming (XP), Scrum, Adaptive Software Development (ASD), Feature Driven Development (FDD), Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM), Crystal, and Lean Software Development (LSD).
When to use the Agile model?
The Agile model is mainly useful when
Testing Phase in the Agile software development model
Agile Testing involves Testing from the customer’s perspective. The Testing starts early as soon as the code gets ready. So, the Testing occurs at the time of implementation, unlike the traditional Testing process. The tests are performed by the QA Team as well as the developers, and the Business Analysts. Here, Testing and feedback are a continuous process.
The following are the Agile Testing Methods.
