The purpose of this study was to investigate the possibility of streamlining the test process by utilizing pair programming. During the process, pair programming has been practiced as is defined by the Extreme programming (XP) software development methodology, with the other aspects of XP discarded. The focus of the testing itself has been toward unit testing. The methods applied has been with an experimental approach where 93 cases were attempted to be solved by either single programmers or pair programmers. What has been investigated in these experiments was the time needed to complete a case, how many test attempts were needed to solve the case, and how high a percentage of the cases were solved. These 93 cases have been investigated by the use of suitable statistical methods in order to reach a generalizable conclusion. The final conclusion of the performed study is that if two individuals successfully manages to perform pair programming, there is a possibility that their test process will be streamlined.
