Abstract:
ABSTRACT Regression testing is the process of retesting the modified parts of the software and checking that no new faults have been created into already existing code. The regression test suite is typically large and needs an intelligent method to choose those test cases which will reduce the overall test cost. In this situation, test case prioritization techniques aim to improve the effectiveness of regression testing by ordering the test cases so that the test case with higher priority executed before lower priority. The main purpose of test case prioritization is to increase the rate of fault detection. Basically by using these two approaches, it will take less execution time to detect more faults and average percentage of faults detection (APFD) metric would be later on used to measure test case prioritization effectiveness. A priority based technique will help in priority based execution for regression testing. This paper will represent a review of various regression testing approaches and a surrey on various test case prioritization techniques using a genetic algorithm with the goal of minimizing the number of test cases that are likely to be found during time constrained execution. Keywords- Regression testing, Test case prioritization, Genetic algorithm, Average percentage of faults detection (APFD).
