Test Case Reduction For Regression Testing

[Full Text]



Amit Srivastava, Er. Rajesh Tripathi



Keywords: Regression testing, Test case, test case minimization.



Abstract: Software testing is one of the most important stages of software development. In any software development, the development teams always depend on testing to know errors in the program. In the maintenance stage test suite size grow because of integration of new module in the main program. Addition of new module force to create new test case which increase the size of test suite. Regression testing is a type of testing in which we test the program after any modification in the program. In regression testing new test case may be added to the test suite during the whole testing process. The new additions of test cases create possibility of presence of same type of test cases. Due to limitation of time and resource, reduction techniques should be used to recognize and remove them.
