With the abundance of testing techniques being developed, a critical question—yet one that has not been adequately answered by the research so far—is how to evaluate the effectiveness of these techniques. The answer is far from straightforward because different techniques may excel in different situations. For example, test suites generated by the same technique may differ in characteristics that affect their ability to detect faults. Different kinds of faults, in turn, may be more easily… CONTINUE READING
