The aim of software testing is to find faults in a program under test, so generating test data that can expose the faults of a program is very important. To date, current studies on generating test data for path coverage do not perform well in detecting low probability faults on the covered path. The automatic generation of test data for both path coverage and fault detection using genetic algorithms is the focus of this study. To this end, the problem is first formulated as a bi-objective… CONTINUE READING
