Search-based system testing: high coverage, no false alarms

  title={Search-based system testing: high coverage, no false alarms},
  author={Florian Gross and Gordon Fraser and Andreas Zeller},
Modern test case generation techniques can automatically achieve high code coverage. If they operate on the unit level, they run the risk of generating inputs infeasible in reality, which, when causing failures, are painful to identify and eliminate. Running a unit test generator on five open source Java programs, we found that all of the 181 reported failures were false failures—that is, indicating a problem in the generated test case rather than the program. By generating test cases at the… CONTINUE READING
