Goal-Driven Exploration for Android Applications

Duling Lai, Julia Rubin
2019 2019 34th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering (ASE)  
Existing application testing techniques are not suitable for goal-driven exploration because they cannot promptly navigate to the functionality of interest.  ...  Existing automated application exploration and testing techniques are of limited help in this scenario as well, as their goal is mostly to identify faults by systematically exploring different app paths  ...  Random Testing. Random testing techniques generate random, independent input events sequences during the test session.  ...

Android Platform Modeling and Android App Verification in the ACL2 Theorem Prover [chapter]

Eric Smith, Alessandro Coglio
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Its main disadvantage is that it requires significant user effort, but we are working to improve the automation of the proof process.  ...  Our formal Android model is an executable simulator of a growing subset of the Android platform, and app proofs are done by automated symbolic execution of the app's event handlers using the formal model  ...  We are extending our formal model to cover more Android features and are tackling the verification of larger and more complex apps.  ...
