A Comprehensive Survey of Recent Developments in Software Testing Methodologies

C. Prakasa Rao | P. Govindarajulu


Abstract: Testing is one of the phases of all process models of software engineering. It remains the most indispensable part of software quality assurance. High reliability of software is expected in the real world as it, otherwise, becomes obsolete. It is more so with complex and machine critical applications. In this paper we provide a comprehensive survey of recent developments in software testing methodologies. Various approaches discussed in this paper include automatic generation of test cases, search based techniques, Just-In-Time quality assurance, static analysis, bad smell detection, early detection of concurrency problems, random testing, integration testing, combinatorial testing, model-based testing, test-driven approaches, dependency-based test case prioritization, state-based testing, adaptive testing and so on. This paper throws light into dependency structures for test case prioritization and test suite generation with minimum size test suites maximum coverage with discussion on empirical studies. The recent methodologies in software testing are focused in this paper besides finding potential gaps for future work.
