Abstract: Evolutionary structural testing uses specific approaches based on guided searches that involve evaluating fitness functions to determine whether test data satisfy or not various structural testing criteria. For testing switch-case constructs the nested if-then-else structure and Alternative Critical Branches (ACBs) approaches were used so far. In this paper a new evolutionary structural approach based on Compact and Minimized Control Flow Graph (CMCFG), which is derived from the concept of Control Flow Graph (CFG), is presented. Experiments on different levels of imbrications demonstrate that this new approach has significantly better results in finding test data which cover a particular target branch in comparison with the previous approaches reported in the literature.
