On facilitating reuse in multi-goal test-suite generation for software product lines
: Software testing is still the most established and scalable quality-assurance technique in practice today. However, generating effective test suites remains computationally expensive, consisting of repetitive reachability analyses for multiple test goals according to a coverage criterion. This situation is even worse when it comes to testing of entire software product lines (SPL). An SPL consists of a family of similar program variants, thus testing an SPL requires a sufficient coverage of all derivable program variants. Instead of considering every product variant one-by-one, familybased approaches are variability-aware analysis techniques in that they systematically explore similarities among the different variants. Based on this principle, we propose a novel approach for automated product-line test-suite generation incorporating extensive reuse of reachability information among test cases derived for different test goals and/or program variants. The developed tool implementation ...
