3 Test Suite Adequacy Can test adequacy metrics defined over the structure of a program be rendered ineffective by restructuring a program? Examined Statement, Branch, MCDC vs. random search Statement, Branch not very useful MCDC: better but sensitive to program structure Working on: Transformation-Insensitve Coverage Metrics A. Rajan, M. Whalen, and M.P.E. Heimdahl. The Effect of Program and Model Structure on MC/DC Test Adequacy Coverage. ICSE 2008, Leipzig, Germany, May, 2008.
4 Requirements-Based Test Case Generation Conformance Testing Autogenerate Test Cases From Model Commercial Tools Available (T-VEC, REACTIS) Show Code Conforms to the Model Goal is Structural Coverage (MC/DC) Need Oracles! Requirements-Based Testing State Requirements as Properties Use Bounded Model Checker to Generate Test Cases Goal is to Cover the Requirement Code Generator Create Model Code Model Requirements Create Requirements Based Tests Create Additional Structural Tests Test Case Generator Test Case Generator Properties A.Rajan, M. Whalen, M. Staats, and M.P.E. Heimdahl. Requirements Coverage as an Adequacy Measure for Conformance Testing. (ICFEM 2008), Kitakyushu City, Japan, October, M. Whalen, A. Rajan, and M.P.E. Heimdahl.
