Many statistical methods for estimating software quality rely on representative testing: they assume a program is tested in an environment that simulates the one where it will be used. Often, however, a software tester's aim is to uncover defects as soon as possible, and representative testing may not be the best way to do this. Instead, tests are often selected according to some plan that is believed to result in an eecient but thorough examination of the software's behavior. This raises the… CONTINUE READING
