Regression testing is a safeguarding procedure to validate and verify adapted software, and guarantee that no errors have emerged. However, regression testing is very costly when testers need to re-execute all the test cases against the modified software. This paper proposes a new approach in regression test selection domain. The approach is based on metamodels (test models and structured models) to decrease the number of test cases to be used in the regression testing process. The approach has

The results have shown that our approach reduces the size of test suite without negative impact on the effectiveness of the fault detection.
