Software testing is important to make sure that code works as intended. Traditionally, this verification process has relied on manual testing, which is not only time-consuming but also susceptible to human errors. Through the use of automated test case generation techniques, we can automate this process and reduce the time and effort needed to...

Test amplification makes systematic changes to existing, manually written tests to provide tests complementary to an automated test suite. We consider developer-centric test amplification, where the developer explores, judges and edits the amplified tests before adding them to their maintained test suite. However, it is as yet unclear which...

Writing software tests is laborious and time-consuming. To address this, prior studies introduced various automated test-generation techniques. A well-explored research direction in this field is unit test generation, wherein artificial intelligence (AI) techniques create tests for a method/class under test. While many of these techniques have...

On the intuitive level, software testing is important because it assures the quality of the software used by humans. However, ensuring this quality is not an easy task because as the complexity of the software increases, so do the efforts to test it. Search-based software testing is an active research field that develops and explores tools for...

Software testing plays a crucial role in delivering reliable software. Currently, research is ongoing on how software developers and testers acquire this knowledge of software testing to deliver reliable software and what kind of knowledge is being transferred to developers and testers. In an effort to gain more insight into this area, we will...

In this study, we try to understand what kind of topics and frameworks are covered by the popular software testing books, and see whether these topics satisfy the industry needs and address the rising trends. To define "popular" software testing books, we formulated three heuristics. The topics of the books are analyzed through LDA topic...

Software testing is a necessary aspect of software development. With high expectations placed on software testers and a shortage of qualified professionals, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have emerged as a potential solution to improve software testing education. MOOCs provide accessible education and can offer a comprehensive review of...

Software testing is an important but time-consuming task, making automatic test case generation an appealing solution. The current state-of-the-art algorithm for test case generation is DynaMOSA, which is an improvement of NSGA-II that applies domain knowledge to make it more suitable for test case generation. Although these enhancements are...

Distributed databases often struggle to fulfill their transactional isolation guarantees due to sharding and replication. As a result, the problem of checking isolation levels is consistently receiving attention from academia and industries. Transactional dependency graphs form a useful abstraction to analyze the transactions’ dependencies and...

Fault injection has been a long-standing technique for testing software. Injecting faults into a system, either in production or development environments, offers unique opportunities to discover bugs that are difficult to reproduce using conventional testing methods. However, it is widely considered to have a high implementation threshold. Due...

Background: For rigorous software testing, integration and end-to-end tests are essential to ensure the expected behavior of multiple interacting components of the system. When software is subjected to integration or end-to-end tests, it is often unfeasible to test every code change individually, as the runtime of these tests is usually...

Test amplification generates new tests by mutating existing, developer-written tests and keeping those tests that improve the coverage of the test suite. Current amplification tools focus on starting from a specific test and propose coverage improvements all over a software project, requiring considerable effort from the software engineer to...
