Ideal test for android testing: Preliminary work
MetadataShow full item record
This paper proposes a hybrid method combining well-known holistic test and mutation testing in software testing for Graphical User Interface (GUI) testing of an android application. Moreover, this hybrid method satisfies requirements of ideal testing that is well known and important in software testing. Presence and absence of GUI based faults are tested within this work experimentally and comparatively in the scale of given or constructed model. First step of the method is modeling the given GUI of android application by Finite State Machine (FSM) and then converting this FSM to Regular Expression (RE). Then, test sequences are generated from a context table that is obtained analysis of the RE model. This process defines first part of the Holistic Testing namely positive testing. In second part called negative testing, the test sequence generation procedure is applied mutants of the FSM obtained after applying selected mutation operators. The generated test sequences from original and mutant models are executed on mutant and original android applications respectively. Test sequences are filtered by using pre-defined selection criteria for both positive and negative testing to achieve ideal test suites that are satisfying requirements of the ideal testing.
