Before using CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) applications in mission-critical scenarios, it is important to understand the robustness of the Object Request Broker (ORB) being used, which forms the platform for CORBA applications. We have extended the Ballista software testing technique to test the exception-handling robustness of C++ ORB(More)
Software testing is any activity aimed at evaluating an attribute or capability of a program or system and determining that it meets its required results. [Hetzel88] Although crucial to software quality and widely deployed by programmers and testers, software testing still remains an art, due to limited understanding of the principles of software.

Software robustness problems may hinder the use of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) software modules and legacy software modules in mission-critical and safety-critical applications. This research focuses on hardening COTS and legacy software modules against robustness failures triggered by exceptional inputs. An automated approach is presented that is(More)
