Phase seven in the Software Development LifeCycle is the Test and Integration Phase. We have now written technical documentations for the Initiation, Concept Development, Planning, Requirements, Design, and Development phases. Next, we write documents to show how to test all aspects of the database, systems, applications and other software tools.
