An Approach of Generating a Test Set to Locate a Pair-Wise Interaction Fault

Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This paper discusses the location of interaction faults in software interaction testing. Speci cally, we
propose a method of generating a test set that can locate any single pair-wise interaction fault, aimed at reduction of
software development cost. In mathematical terms, such a test set is called a locating array. The proposed method
works as follows. First, a test set is generated using an existing method for pair-wise testing. Second, pair-wise
interactions that cannot be located by the test set are enumerated. Finally, addition of a test case to the test set
is repeated until all pair-wise interactions can be located. We apply the proposed method to some examples to
compare it with a conventional pair-wise testing method with respect to the number of test cases in resulting test
sets. The results of the case study show that the proposed method can enable fault localization at the cost of 2-3
times test set size.
