Ask Artima: Can TDD and RUP Work Together? Posted: Jun 3, 2003 5:24 AM

Hi All,

So far I have not used Test Driven Development (TDD). In our organization we are following Rational Unified Process (RUP).

I have heard TDD is some sort of write test code first, and then develop, and then refactor if necessary.

I have few questions:

- Can TDD not be employed in RUP? I ask because RUP recommends design be done before implemetation, and design should be a blueprint for the implementation. Any refactoring required it should be done as design itself.

- In TDD approach, is there no design at all?

- Does writing black box testing scripts not fall under TDD? (I cask because TDD needs some kind of implementation details like class name & method names.)

- If TDD is to fit in RUP, then we should start writing tests after design. Am i right in stating so?


Please clarify

Thanks in Advance,
Manohar

There's an Extreme Programming plugin for RUP, I suggest that'd be the first place to start looking: http://www.rational.com/products/rup/xprog.jsp?SMSESSION=NO
