TL;DR: Comprehensively covers psychological and economic principles, managerial aspects of testing, test tools, high-order testing, code inspections, and debugging, and programming students will find this reference work indispensible.
Abstract: From the Publisher: Provides a practical rather than theoretical discussion of the purpose and nature of software testing. Emphasizes methodologies for the design of effective test cases. Comprehensively covers psychological and economic principles, managerial aspects of testing, test tools, high-order testing, code inspections, and debugging. Extensive bibliography. Programmers at all levels, and programming students, will find this reference work indispensible.
TL;DR: A relatwely large but easy-to-use collection of test functions and designed gmdelines for testing the reliability and robustness of unconstrained optimization software.
Abstract: Much of the testing of optimization software is inadequate because the number of test functmns is small or the starting points are close to the solution. In addition, there has been too much emphasm on measurmg the efficmncy of the software and not enough on testing reliability and robustness. To address this need, we have produced a relatwely large but easy-to-use collection of test functions and designed gmdelines for testing the reliability and robustness of unconstrained optimization software.
TL;DR: This paper surveys each area of minimization, selection and prioritization technique and discusses open problems and potential directions for future research.
Abstract: Regression testing is a testing activity that is performed to provide confidence that changes do not harm the existing behaviour of the software. Test suites tend to grow in size as software evolves, often making it too costly to execute entire test suites. A number of different approaches have been studied to maximize the value of the accrued test suite: minimization, selection and prioritization. Test suite minimization seeks to eliminate redundant test cases in order to reduce the number of tests to run. Test case selection seeks to identify the test cases that are relevant to some set of recent changes. Test case prioritization seeks to order test cases in such a way that early fault detection is maximized. This paper surveys each area of minimization, selection and prioritization technique and discusses open problems and potential directions for future research. Copyright © 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
TL;DR: The notion of adequacy criteria is examined together with its role in software dynamic testing and the methods for comparison and assessment of criteria are reviewed.
Abstract: Objective measurement of test quality is one of the key issues in software testing. It has been a major research focus for the last two decades. Many test criteria have been proposed and studied for this purpose. Various kinds of rationales have been presented in support of one criterion or another. We survey the research work in this area. The notion of adequacy criteria is examined together with its role in software dynamic testing. A review of criteria classification is followed by a summary of the methods for comparison and assessment of criteria.
