Combinatorial Testing Webinar

Combinatorial Testing

VIP Reminder: Register for September 6 ACM SIGSOFT Talk, "Combinatorial Testing: Progress in Automating Test Design"
Register now:  https://event.on24.com/eventRegistration/EventLobbyServlet  for the next free ACM SIGSOFT Learning Webinar,"Combinatorial Testing: Progress in Automating Test Design," presented on Thursday, September 6 at 12 PM ET by George Sherwood, founder and CEO of Testcover.com. Robert Dyer, Assistant Professor at Bowling Green State University will moderate the questions and answers session.

(If you'd like to attend but can't make it to the virtual event, you still need to register to receive a recording of the webinar when it becomes available.)

Combinatorial testing (CT) is a way to design software tests so that interactions among configuration settings and input values are covered by the test design. This webinar introduces CT, from its origins in design of experiments to its present role in verifying interactions in complex systems. A persistent CT usability challenge has been constraints among test factor values, which can cause some tests to be valid but others not. Research progress in managing constraints has enabled increased adoption among practicing software engineers, and better coverage of test interactions. Embedded functions technology allows functionally dependent relations among test factors to be defined as functions in a general purpose programming language. These relations enforce constraints among test factor values and insure that all valid combinations of determinant factors are available for the test design. Resulting usability improvements enable automated pairwise test designs to meet novel objectives: Cover equivalence classes of expected results; verify univariate and multivariate equivalence class boundaries; verify corners among intersecting boundaries and edges. ...
