XML-manipulating test case prioritization for XML-manipulating services
: A web service may evolve autonomously, making peer web services in the same service composition uncertain as to whether the evolved behaviors are compatible with its original collaborative agreement. Although peer services may wish to conduct regression testing to verify the agreed collaboration, the source code of the former service may be inaccessible to them. Owing to the black-box nature of peer services, traditional code-based approaches to regression testing are inapplicable. In addition, traditional techniques assume that a regression test suite for verifying a web service is available. The location to store a regression test suite is also a problem. On the other hand, we note that the rich interface specifications of a web service provide peer services with a means to formulate black-box testing strategies. In this paper, we provide a strategy for black-box service-oriented testing. We also formulate new test case prioritization strategies using tags embedded in XML messages ...
