Test set quality benefits from tests that detect large numbers of faults. However, test compaction procedures target decreasing numbers of faults as they generate more tests and drop faults from consideration. This paper describes a procedure that balances the numbers of faults that tests in a given test set detect in order to improve its quality. In the first step of an iteration, the procedure moves tests from the beginning to the end of the test set. This allows fault simulation with fault… CONTINUE READING
