Prioritization on Software Reliability Assessment using Adaptive Testing Strategy

Authors(2) :-Dr. P. Maragathavalli, A.Saranya

Regression testing assures changed programs against spontaneous improvement. Rearranging the execution order of test cases is a key idea to improve their effectiveness. Many test case prioritization techniques determine test cases using the random selection appear, and yet random ordering of test cases has been considered as ineffective. Adaptive random testing (ART) is a talented aspirant that may deputy random testing (RT). Coverage-based ART techniques are statistically better than Random testing in detecting faults. ART prioritization techniques used for coverage-based prioritization to reduce time consumption.
