Optimizing Regression Testing with Functional Flow Block Reliability Diagram

Vaishali Chourey, Meena Sharma

Abstract

Model based testing techniques are widely used to generate tests from models and their specifications. Regression Testing is critical in evolving software systems. It implies that Software undergoes continuous integration and subsequent testing of modules and components to develop a final release of the software. Recent research on test automation have revealed challenges in testing such as enormous test cases generated that are either redundant or irrelevant tests. This prevents the critical parts of code from testing and leave faults uncovered. Manual testing also slows the process and makes exhaustive testing for quality difficult. This paper proposes an approach to generate regression tests from model synthesized from UML interaction diagrams and also prioritize tests. The algorithm generate test suites from the proposed intermediate model. The reliability analysis is performed on blocks and the results govern the prioritization of tests.
