In software testing, what are the tasks of Test Closure activities?
Test Closure activities can be categorized in four major groups -
1. Test Completion Check: In order to ensure all tests should be either run or deliberately skipped and all known defects should be either fixed, deferred for a future release or accepted as a permanent restriction.
2. Test Artifacts handover: Tests and test environments should be handed over to those responsible for maintenance testing. Known defects accepted or deferred should be documented and communicated to those who will use and support the use of the system.
3. Lessons learned: Analyzing lessons learned to determine changes needed for future releases and projects. In retrospective meetings, plans are established to ensure that good
practices can be repeated and poor practices are not repeated
4. Archiving results, logs, reports, and other documents and work products in the CMS (configuration management system).
