Test prioritization is crucial for testing products in a product line considering limited budget in terms of available time and resources. In general, it is not practically feasible to execute all the possible test cases and so, ordering test case execution permits test engineers to discover faults earlier in the testing process. An efficient prioritization(More)
Many software engineering problems are multi-objective in nature, which has been largely recognized by the Search-based Software Engineering (SBSE) community. In this regard, Pareto-based search algorithms, e.g., Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm II, have already shown good performance for solving multi-objective optimization problems. These(More)
Automated test case selection for a new product in a product line is challenging due to several reasons. First, the variability within the product line needs to be captured in a systematic way; second, the reusable test cases from the repository are required to be identified for testing a new product. The objective of such automated process is to reduce the(More)
In the context of product lines, test case selection aims at obtaining a set of relevant test cases for a product from the entire set of test cases available for a product line. While working on a research-based innovation project on automated testing of product lines of Video Conferencing Systems (VCSs) developed by Cisco, we felt the need to devise a(More)
The Cisco Video Conferencing Systems (VCS) Product Line is composed of many distinct products that can be configured in many different ways. The validation of this product line is currently performed manually during test plan design and test executions' scheduling. For example, the testing of a specific VCS product leads to the manual selection of a set of(More)
In the context of Model-Based Testing (MBT) of product lines, effort required to develop models can be significantly reduced by applying systematic product line modeling and configuration methodologies. In our previous work, we developed such a methodology to capture variability in configurable UML state machines and aspect state machines. For each product,(More)
Automated test case selection for a new product in a software product line is challenging due to several reasons. Firstly, the selection of relevant test cases requires modeling the variability within the product line. Secondly, existing test cases needs to be associated to this modeling in order to perform automated selection. The objective of such an(More)
Test case prioritization is an essential part of test execution systems for large organizations developing software systems in the context that their software versions are released very frequently. They must be tested on a variety of compatible hardware with different configurations to ensure correct functioning of a software version on a compatible(More)
