During maintenance, it is common to run the new version of a program against its existing test suite to check whether the modifications in the program introduced unforeseen side effects. Although this kind of regression testing can be effective in identifying some change-related faults, it is limited by the quality of the existing test suite. Because generating tests for real programs is expensive, developers build test suites by finding acceptable tradeoffs between cost and thoroughness of the… Expand
