Graphical user interfaces (GUIs) are one of the most commonly used parts of today's software. Despite their ubiquity, testing GUIs for functional correctness remains an understudied area. A typical GUI gives many degrees of freedom to an end-user, leading to an enormous input event interaction space that needs to be tested. GUI test designers generate and execute test cases (modeled as sequences of user events) to traverse its parts; targeting a subspace in order to maximize fault detection is… CONTINUE READING
