Automated Test Case Generation Using Classification Trees
Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors’ abstract.] The basic problem in software testing is selecting a set of test cases. This article presents a test case design using the Classification Tree Editor (CTE XL), a test case generation software tool. It shows how to integrate weighting factors into classification trees and generate prioritized test suites. CTE XL includes classical approaches such as minimal combination and pair-wise as well as weighted counterparts, statistical testing and new generating rules. The software allows for prioritization by occurrence probability, error probability or risk.
