A family of test adequacy criteria for database-driven applications
Although a software application always executes within a particular environment, current testing methods have largely ignored these environmental factors. Many applications execute in an environment that contains a database. In this paper, we propose a family of test adequacy criteria that can be used to assess the quality of test suites for databasedriven applications. Our test adequacy criteria use dataflow information that is associated with the entities in a relational database. Furthermore, we develop a unique representation of a database-driven application that facilitates the enumeration of database interaction associations. These associations can reflect an application's definition and use of database entities at multiple levels of granularity. The usage of a tool to calculate intraprocedural database interaction associations for two case study applications indicates that our adequacy criteria can be computed with an acceptable time and space overhead.
