Improving Pairwise Testing Using the Properties of the System under Test

Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) A testing process takes a large part of the whole software development process, and thus testing methods are required that can effectively detect many faults with a small number of tests. Pairwise testing is known as such a testing method. Pairwise testing requires that all the combinations of parameter values for every pair of parameters be tested. In this paper we propose to use the properties of the system under test to improve pairwise testing. Specifically we allow the tester to specify mutually unrelated parameters and parameters that should be proactively tested. Our algorithm makes use of these inputs in generating test cases. We empirically show that using thus generated tests a higher code coverage can be achieved with fewer tests.
