Abstract:


Code coverage information is widely used to address problems in software development and maintenance phase. Software undergoes changes at all stages of the software development process and in maintenance life cycle. As subsequent versions of software program are created, coverage data is needed for those programs for regression testing tasks. Code coverage information helps in selecting test cases that are required to run on modified software. Researchers have developed different approaches using code coverage to accomplish regression testing tasks. We are of the opinion that there is a need to combine code based coverage and requirement based coverage to get hybrid coverage information to support regression testing.
