When a team uses IntegrationTest – always ask what they mean with the term

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/02/13

Since Integration Tests have been around since the 1980s (yes, that long!), better ask what they mean in your teams.

If they are broad, you might want to re-consider and switch to narrowly scoped ones (but mind your pace).

A while ago, I landed another team, they were doing various kinds of test, but  nobody had a good definition of which was what, so I dug up the below article.

Integration tests see if independently developed units of software work correctly when connected. Traditionally broad they are now better narrowly scoped.
