  1. 1. Evaluating the Trade-offs of Diversity-Based Test Prioritization: An Experiment

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för data- och informationsteknik

    Author : Ranim Khojah; Chi Hong Chao; [2020-12-03]
    Keywords : Diversity-based testing; Test Case Prioritization; Natural Language Processing NLP ; Level of Testing LoT ;

    Abstract : Different test prioritization techniques detect faults at earlier stages of test execution. To this end, Diversity-based techniques (DBT) have been cost-effective by prioritizing the most dissimilar test cases to maintain effectiveness and coverage with lower resources at different stages of the software development life cycle, called levels of testing (LoT).

  2. 2. Evaluation of Idempotency & Block Size of Data on the Performance of Normalized Compression Distance Algorithm

    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Sektionen för datavetenskap och kommunikation; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Sektionen för datavetenskap och kommunikation

    Author : Venkata Srikanth Mandhapati; Kamran Ali Bajwa; [2012]
    Keywords : Normalized Compression Distance; NCD; Idempotency; Compression ratio; Block Size of Data.;

    Abstract : Normalized compression distance (NCD) is a similarity distance metric algorithm which is used for the purpose of analyzing the type of file fragments. The performance of NCD depends upon underlying compression algorithm to be used. READ MORE

  3. 3. Validation of Machine Learning and Visualization based Static Code Analysis Technique

    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Sektionen för datavetenskap och kommunikation; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Sektionen för datavetenskap och kommunikation

    Author : Waqas Mahmood; Muhammad Faheem Akhtar; [2009]
    Keywords : Static code analysis; NCD classification; security vulnerabilities; early defect detection; software validation;

    Abstract : Software security has always been an afterthought in software development which results into insecure software. Companies rely on penetration testing for detecting security vulnerabilities in their software. However, incorporating security at early stage of development reduces cost and overhead. READ MORE

  4. 4. Information Visualization and Machine Learning Applied on Static Code Analysis

    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Avdelningen för programvarusystem; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Avdelningen för programvarusystem

    Author : Denis Kacan; Darius Sidlauskas; [2008]
    Keywords : Software validation; static analyzer; normalized compression distance; source code visualization;

    Abstract : Software engineers will possibly never see the perfect source code in their lifetime, but they are seeing much better analysis tools for finding defects in software. The approaches used in static code analysis emerged from simple code crawling to usage of statistical and probabilistic frameworks. READ MORE

  5. 5. Using diversity measures to investigate the trade-off of redundant test cases: An experimental study

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för data- och informationsteknik

    Author : MORITZ CHRISTOPHER DENKE; []
    Keywords : test diversity; test redundancy; test case prioritization; software testing; empirical study;

    Abstract : [Context] Diversity-based test (DBT) selection has established its position as an appropriate method in the environment of Software Testing. By exclusion/prioritization of similar/redundant test cases, a test suite can achieve a lower runtime and better fault-detection ability. READ MORE
