DirectDebug: Automated Testing and Debugging of Feature Models

Viet-Man Le, Alexander Felfernig, Mathias Uta, David Benavides, Jose Galindo, Thi Ngoc Trang Tran
2021 2021 IEEE/ACM 43rd International Conference on Software Engineering: New Ideas and Emerging Results (ICSE-NIER)  
In this paper, we introduce DIRECTDEBUG which is a direct diagnosis approach to the automated testing and debugging of variability models.  ...  Such models can be translated to a logical representation and thus allow different operations for quality assurance and other types of model property analysis.  ...  First, we show how to extend direct diagnosis [10] to support the automated testing and debugging of feature models.  ...

Testing and debugging distributed programs using global predicates

S. Venkatesan, B. Dathan
1995 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
Testing and debugging programs are more involved in distributed systems than in uniprocessor systems because of the presence of the communication medium and the inherent concurrency.  ...  We develop fully-distributed algorithms to test CFP's, prove that these algorithms are correct, and analyze them for their message complexity.  ...  Since distributed programs are inherently hard to design and develop, they are also difficult to test and debug. Testing and debugging are further complicated because communication delays are random.  ...

Metamorphic Testing and Debugging of Tax Preparation Software [article]

Saeid Tizpaz-Niari, Morgan Wagner, Shiva Darian, Krystia Reed, Ashutosh Trivedi
2022 arXiv   pre-print
The key obstacles in developing debugging aids for tax preparation systems, however, are the unavailability of explicit specifications and the difficulty of obtaining oracles.  ...  Inspired by metamorphic testing framework from software engineering, we dub these relations metamorphic relations.  ...  Hence, obtaining the oracle for testing and debugging purposes is impractically expensive.  ...
