Adaptive testing is a new form of software testing that is based on the feedback and adaptive control principle and can be treated as the software testing counterpart of adaptive control. Our previous work has shown that adaptive testing can be formulated and guided in theory to minimize the variance of an unbiased software reliability estimator and to(More)
Software defects play a key role in software reliability, and the number of remaining defects is one of most important software reliability indexes. Observing the trend of the number of remaining defects during the testing process can provide very useful information on the software reliability. However, the number of remaining defects is not known and has(More)
This paper uses a Bayesian network to model software reliability prediction with an operational profile. Due to the complexity of software products and development processes, software reliability models need to possess the ability to deal with multiple parameters. A Bayesian network exhibits a strong ability to adapt to problems involving complex variant(More)
A new partition testing strategy that adopts dynamic partitioning is proposed in this paper. By dynamic partitioning it is meant that the test suite or the input domain of the software under test is partitioned into several subdomains whose members are dynamically adjusted during testing by using feedback information such as the testing data collected(More)
Software reliability testing refers to various software testing activities that are driven to achieve a quantitative reliability goal given a priori or lead to a quantitative reliability assessment for the software under test. In this paper we develop a modeling framework for the software reliability testing process, comprising a simplifying model and a(More)
