Evolutionary approaches are well suited for automatic generation of good quality test data for software testing. Software testing is not effective without good quality test data, so good quality software testing depends upon good quality software test data. Automatic test data generation becomes very critical when we come to a higher level of testing including integration testing and system testing. Unit testing can be managed with manual data to test single methods and classes. In Integration… Expand
