Michael Marcozzi, Mickael Delahaye, Sebastien Bardin, Nikolai Kosmatov, Virgile Prevosto
2017 2017 IEEE International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation (ICST)  
While a wide range of different and sometimes heterogeneous code-coverage criteria (a.k.a. testing criteria, or adequacy criteria) have been proposed, there exists no generic formalism to describe them  ...  We introduce a new specification language, called HTOL (Hyperlabel Test Objectives Language), providing a powerful generic mechanism to define a wide range of test objectives.  ...  -coverage measurement and/or test generation.  ...

Generic and Effective Specification of Structural Test Objectives [article]

Sébastien Bardin, Mickaël Delahaye, Nikolai Kosmatov, Michaël Marcozzi, Virgile Prevosto
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Finally, a coverage measurement tool for HTOL objectives has been implemented. Initial experiments suggest that the proposed approach is both efficient and practical.  ...  While a wide range of different, sometimes heterogeneous test coverage criteria have been proposed, there exists no generic formalism to describe them, and available test automation tools usually support  ...  The tool is written in OCaml, and relies on PathCrawler [48] for test generation and on Frama-C for static analysis.  ...

Computer simulation of solid C60 using multiple time‐step algorithms

Piero Procacci, B. J. Berne
1994 Journal of Chemical Physics  
The reversible reference system propagator algorithm (r-RESPA), based on a Trotter factorization of the classical propagator, is tested in a molecular dynamics simulation of solid C6e.  ...  We show how, with an appropriate subdivision of the interaction potential and with a careful balancing of the integration parameters, one can adopt large time steps and impressively efficient r-RESPA integrators  ...  The analysis of the trajectories, both at low and high temperature, has shown that the r-RESPA method produces the same quality dynamics as generated by the velocity Verlet algorithm with a much smaller  ...

2010 Proceedings of the IEEE/ACM international conference on Automated software engineering - ASE '10  
Moreover, we present a test case generation engine for C programs and perform practical experiments with the sample specifications. General Terms Languages, Verification • Coverage Evaluation.  ...  For instance, we can use concise specifications of missing test cases as inputs for a heavy-weight tool such as a model checker.  ...  Measurement-based Execution Time Analysis. Our initial motivation for FQL and the test case generation backend was measurement-based execution time analysis for embedded real-time software.  ...

2015 ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology  
The criteria are evaluated on a set of Java and C programs with both manually written and automatically generated test suites. The evaluation uses three correlation measures.  ...  A fundamental question in software testing research is how to compare test suites, often as a means for comparing test-generation techniques that produce those test suites.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We would like to thank Yu Lin, Qingzhou Luo, and Shalini Shamasunder for discussions about this work, Mladen Laudanovic and Douglas Simpson for help with statistical analysis, Lingming  ...

To tackle this problem, we introduce a hybrid testing framework for data-flow based test generation: (1) The core of our framework is symbolic execution (SE), enhanced by a novel guided path exploration  ...  strategy to improve testing performance; and (2) we systematically cast DFT as reachability checking in software model checking (SMC) to complement SE, yielding practical DFT that combines the two techniques  ...  generate test cases for feasible test objectives and eliminate infeasible ones at the same time.  ...
