Äquivalenzklassenbildung Die zufällige Auswahl der Testdaten ist keine optimale Teststrategie bzw. Testmethode, da die Fehler im Code nicht zufällig verteilt sind. Gesucht sind typische Werte, die gleichsam für eine ganze Klasse von Eingaben stehen. Somit kann man mit relativ wenigen Testfällen, die eine große Wahrscheinlichkeit zum Auffinden von Fehlern besitzen sollten, trotzdem gründlich testen. Ein in diesem Sinne gut ausgewählter Testfall besitzt weiterhin die folgenden zwei Eigenschaften: Er reduziert die Anzahl anderer Testfälle, die zum Erreichen eines vorgegebenen Zieles beim sinnvollen Testen entwickelt worden sind und er überdeckt eine große Menge anderer möglicher Testfälle, d.h. er sagt etwas über die Anwesenheit oder Abwesenheit von Fehlern für diesen speziellen Satz von Eingabedaten aus.

project directory A directory that contains information for a single RequisitePro project. You define the project directory when you create a new project. (By default, RequisitePro creates a directory name that matches what is typed in the Name text box in the RequisitePro Project Properties dialog box.) For projects that use the Microsoft Access database, the database is stored in the project directory. The project directory does not störe the database for projects that use an enterprise database (i.e., Oracle and SQL Server databases). Requirements documents for the project may be stored in another directory. The project directory path can contain up to 256 characters. See also project directory. Rational Tech.term English

For example, if a requirement's tag is PR234 and the project's prefix is GLOBAL, then the external requirement is displayed as GLOBAL.PR234. The prefix can be up to 8 characters and must be uppercase letters. You can change the prefix at any time in the Project Properties dialog box, General tab. Rational Tech.term English

Rational Tech.term English
requirement name A user-defined title for a requirement. Like tag and text attributes, the name can be used to reference requirements. The name is displayed by default in all Rational RequisitePro views. All requirements must have either a name, text, or both, but requirements located in documents must have text.

requirement tag "The unique identifier of each requirement in a project. A requirement tag is composed of a tag prefix and a unique numerical value, such as ""PR100.1.2."" The tag prefix is always the requirement type, as defined in the Project Properties dialog box. The numerical value is generated by RequisitePro. The tag prefix can contain a maximum of 20 characters. Each requirement type in your project has a different tag prefix (for example, FEAT, SR, UCS) that you determine when you create a new project or add a new requirement type. When you add a requirement to a requirements document or database, RequisitePro assigns the requirement the appropriate tag prefix, dependent on its requirement type, and an incremental numerical value. See also pending tag number." Rational Tech.term English

trace to/trace from relationship "A relationship between two requirements that implies the source, derivation, or dependencies between the requirements. The trace to/trace from state appears in a Traceability Matrix or Traceability Tree when you create a relationship between two requirements. For example, you might create a feature requirement (Requirement A) that calls for a new command to be added to a particular menu in your application. Creating this requirement might cause you to create a Software requirement (Requirement B) associated with that menu item. You would thus create a traceability relationship in which the Software requirement (B) is traced from the feature requirement (A). There can be only one traceability relationship between any two requirements. The difference between calling it a ""trace to"" or ""trace from"" relationship is one of perspective." Rational Tech.term English
traceability "A relationship between two requirements that implies the source, derivation, or dependencies between the requirements using the ""trace to"" and ""trace from"" features." Rational Tech.term English
traceability traceability The ability to trace a project element to other related project elements, especially those related to requirements. Project elements involved in traceability are called traceability items. Rational Tech.term English
Traceability Matrix A view that illustrates the relationships between requirements of the same or different types. You use this matrix to create, modify, and delete traceability relationships and view indirect relationships and traceability relationships with a suspect state. You can also use the Traceability Matrix to filter and sort the row requirements and column requirements separately. See also view. Rational Tech.term English

Unified Change Management Rational's out-of-the-box usage model for managing change in Software System development, from requirements to release. UCM is a unified approach to configuration management and change request management, automated in Rational ClearCase and Rational ClearQuest. ClearCase can be set up to implement the UCM model for basic activity-based configuration management or in conjunction with ClearQuest to provide full change-request management. To implement the UCM model when creating a baseline of a Rational RequisitePro project, the project must be associated with a UCM-enabled Rational project in the Rational Administrator.
