EVOTEST: Evolutionary testing for complex systems

Project ID: 033472
Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

Evotest addresses a fundamental problem European soft ware industry is facing: quality assurance of complex soft ware systems. It does so by combining various visions of the IST programme: a multidisciplinary approach to evolving, adaptive and automated testing as a solution to some of the challenges of mastering complexity in soft ware development. This will be achieved by the development, application and evaluation of Evolutionary Testing techniques. Evolutionary Testing is an exciting, novel, nature-inspired solution, which transforms testing into an optimization problem. To increase the test efficiency for complex systems Evotest will develop an Automated Evolutionary Testing Framework. This framework will enable fully automatic generation of high quality test cases with high error detection probability. Automation is widely regarded as the key to test efficiency.
