Procedures for Reducing the Size of Coverage-based Test Sets

  title={Procedures for Reducing the Size of Coverage-based Test Sets},
  author={Jie Pan},
This paper addresses the problem of reducing the size of test sets for regression testing and test output inspection. Since regression testing requires the execution of some, and in the worst case, all test cases, reducing the number of tests can have a large bene t. Additionally, testers generally have to examine the output of each test case, both during initial and regression testing. Since this is done by hand, reducing the number of outputs that need to be examined can reduce the cost of… CONTINUE READING
