An Optimal Technique for Reducing the Effort of Regression Test


Regression test selection techniques are proposed often but are many times inaccurate when used with larger systems. The proposed new selection technique will be safer, more precise, and can handle the object-oriented features even in larger systems through its phases. Selecting the subset of the test case from the existing test suite is an important problem in regression testing and is addressed in the regression test selection technique. Safe regression test selection technique selects and identifies the program parts that are affected by the change. The test selection is performed by matching the identified change information with the coverage information. A tool is implemented that reduces the testing effort efficiently and the result shows that it can achieve considerable savings in the regression testing time.
