dc.description.abstract Automated accept testing is an emerging practice that is claimed to yield many benefits to software development projects, among which is higher quality of the software product itself. Yet there is little empirically grounded evidence to support such claims. In this paper an open source software project was studied to explore the link between automated acceptance testing and the quality of code. The findings of our study show that such link cannot be established readily. Further investigation is needed and our study provides a practical way to conduct such studies. en_US
