Aspect-oriented software evolution introduces new challenges for regression test selection. When a program, that has been thoroughly tested, evolves by addition of an aspect, it is important for regression test selection to know which test cases are impacted by the new aspects and which are not. The work presented here proposes a classification for regression test cases and introduces an algorithm for impact analysis of aspects on a set of test cases. A major benefit of this analysis is that it
