Konrad Fögen, Horst Lichter:
Combinatorial Robustness Testing with Negative Test Cases

Abstract

Error-handling is an important means to improve the robustness of a system and testing error-handling is crucial to ensure its correctness. In this paper, we argue that error-handling leads to input masking which requires special treatment in for combinatorial testing. Therefore, we propose an extension to combinatorial testing including a robustness fault model and robustness combination strategy. We also provide an evaluation which compares its efficiency to normal combinatorial testing.

The paper will be presented at QRS 2019, held in Sofia, Bulgaria
