Unit and acceptance testing are central to agile software development, but is that all there is to agile testing? We build on previous work to provide a systematic mapping of agile testing publications at major agile conferences. The analysis presented in this paper allows us to answer research questions like: what is agile testing used for; what types of studies on agile testing have been published; what problems do people have when performing agile testing; and what benefits do these publications offer? We additionally explore topics such as: who are the major authors in this field; in which countries do these authors work; what tools are mentioned; and is the field driven by academics, practitioners, or collaborations? This paper presents our analysis of these topics in order to better structure future work in the field of agile testing and to provide a better understanding of what this field actually entails.
