Evolutionary testing is an approach to automating test data generation that uses an evolutionary algorithm to search a test object's input domain for test data. Nested predicates can cause problems for evolutionary testing, because information needed for guiding the search only becomes available as each nested conditional is satisfied. This means that the search process can overfit to early information, making it harder, and sometimes near impossible, to satisfy constraints that only become… CONTINUE READING
