Software testing is a very expensive and time consuming process. Test methods which generate test data based on the program's internal structure are intensively used. This paper presents a comparison between three important Evolutionary Algorithms used for automatic test data generation, a technique that forces the execution of a desired path of the program called target path. Two new approaches, based on Particle Swarm Optimization and Simulated Annealing algorithms, used in conjunction with… CONTINUE READING
