Aim: Regression testing practices in industry have to be better understood, both for the industry itself and for the research community. Method: We conducted a qualitative industry survey by i) running a focus group meeting with 15 industry participants and ii) validating the outcome in an on line questionnaire with 32 respondents. Results: Regression testing needs and practices vary greatly between and within organizations and at different stages of a project. The importance and challenges of automation is clear from the survey. Conclusions: Most of the findings are general testing issues and are not specific to regression testing. Challenges and good practices relate to test automation and testability issues.
