Structural and Functional Sequence Test of Dynamic and State-Based Software with Evolutionary Algorithms
Evolutionary Testing (ET) has been shown to be very successful for testing real world applications [10]. The original ET approach focusesonsearching for a high coverage of the test object by generating separate inputs for single function calls. We have identified a large set of real world application for which this approach does not perform well because only sequential calls of the tested function can reach a high structural coverage (white box test) or can check functional behavior (black box tests). Especially, control software which is responsible for controlling and constraining a system cannot be tested successfully with ET. Such software is characterized by storing internal data during a sequence of calls. In this paper we present the Evolutionary Sequence Testing approachforwhitebox and black box tests. For automatic sequence testing, a fitness function for the application of ET will be introduced, which allows the optimization of input sequences that reach a high coverage of th...
