In order to reduce the cost of regression testing, researchers have investigated the use of test-suite reduction techniques, which identify a reduced test suite that provides the same coverage of the software according to some criterion as the original test suite. Existing test-suite reduction techniques consider test-case coverage criteria, other criteria such as risk or fault-detection effectiveness, or combinations of these criteria, but ignore the test-execution cost because of the… CONTINUE READING
