Unit testing is a common practice where developers write test cases together with regular code. Automation frameworks such as JUnit for Java have popularised this approach, allowing frequent and automatic execution of unit test suites. Despite the appraisals of unit testing in practice, software engineering researchers see potential for improvement and investigate advanced techniques such as automated unit test generation. To align such research with the needs of practitioners, we conducted a… CONTINUE READING
