When a program is modified during software evolution, developers typically run the new version of the program against its existing test suite to validate that the changes made on the program did not introduce unintended side effects (i.e., regression faults). This kind of regression testing can be effective in identifying some regression faults, but it is limited by the quality of the existing test suite. Due to the cost of testing, developers build test suites by finding acceptable tradeoffs… CONTINUE READING
