Companies that provide web applications often encounter various security attacks and frequent feature-update demands from users, and when these needs arise, companies need to fix security problems or upgrade the application with new features. These fixes often involve small patches or revisions, but still, testers need to perform regression testing on their products to ensure that the changes have not introduced new faults. Performing regression testing on the entire product, however, can be… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • Averaging for each application, the test path reduction rates achieved by the studied approach ranged from 46% to 87%, compared to the control technique that generated test cases without considering code change information, and the results exposed ways in which that effectiveness can vary with the application characteristics and their versioning frequencies.
