Perpetual Testing is a project teaming the University of Oregon with the University of Massachussets, Amherst and the University of California, Irvine. It is sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and Air Force Rome Laboratories, and is part of the High Assurance and Real-Time cluster of projects within the Evolutionary Design of Complex Software (EDCS) program. In September 1997, the Perpetual Testing project moved from Purdue University to the University of Oregon.
The perpetual testing project is building a foundation for analysis and
testing as on-going activities to improve quality without pause through
several generations of product. We believe "perpetual" testing
can supplant the current paradigm, which treats testing as a phase that
follows development and precedes deployment, with continuous analysis and
testing in the deployed environment as well as the development environment.
