Heuristics for Faster Error Detection With Automated Black Box Testing
Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science
Three building blocks for test guidance algorithms, the step evaluation, the state evaluation and the evaluation order, are proposed in this paper. We show how a simple family of coverage criteria can be used to evaluate individual testing steps, and how the nondeterministic behaviour of the tested system can be handled and longer term test step plans created with the state evaluation. We use the evaluation order to define which and when states are evaluated. Six heuristic algorithms based ondoi:10.1016/j.entcs.2004.12.007 fatcat:etcwo7a67jh4vma7ibuhkp6tqm
