Testing is the primary means for quality assurance for enterprise systems, and integration testing is often the most time consuming and expensive part of testing. Recently Department of Defense proposed an End-to-End (E2E) integration testing process to address the challenge of testing large integrated information systems. The E2E testing activities include test thin-thread tree construction, condition tree specification, test configuration management, risk analysis, regression testing, ripple effect analysis, test scenario/case generation, rest result analysis, statistical analysis, and project management. A tool has been developed to support this E2E testing on J2EE using EJB and XML with Cloudscape relational database management system. This web-based tool also allows distributed collaboration and remote project management by the E2E testing participants including project managers, contractors, designers and testers.
