Regression mutation testing

  title={Regression mutation testing},
  author={Lingming Zhang and Darko Marinov and Lu Zhang and Sarfraz Khurshid},
Mutation testing is one of the most powerful approaches for evaluating quality of test suites. However, mutation testing is also one of the most expensive testing approaches. This paper presents Regression Mutation Testing (ReMT), a new technique to speed up mutation testing for evolving systems. The key novelty of ReMT is to incrementally calculate mutation testing results for the new program version based on the results from the old program version; ReMT uses a static analysis to check which… CONTINUE READING
