Integration Testing is performed in order to expose any defects in the interfaces of your software, as well as any defects in the interactions between modules in the system.
Catching bugs and software issues early ensures they are not given a chance to progress and embed deeper into your program. This saves you higher testing and developmental investments in the future, of both time and money.
Integration testing is an area that is being adapted and enforced by various gaming jurisdictions. The objective of this is to ensure that games function correctly, and remain compliant even after they are integrated into the gaming operator’s environment. This process also caters to circumstances in which games are manufactured and operated by different entities (software providers and gaming operators).
Integration testing exposes defects both in the interfaces of your games, as well as in the interactions between integrated components, or different modules. During Integration testing, all modules and their interfaces are exercised. The individual sub-systems are exercised through their input interfaces. This way, the success and error cases are able to be simulated through appropriate parameters and data inputs. The simulated usage of shared data areas and inter-process communication are also tested.
iTech Labs has performed Integration testing on thousands of games, helping operators deliver high quality and reliable products to players. These have not only been made up of online casino games for multiple jurisdictions, but also for social gaming and other platforms. iTech Labs staff are experienced in carrying out in depth testing and regularly catch issues and bugs for customers before they cause any serious issues! If you have a game or platform that needs Integration testing, please get in touch with the iTech team here.
