Combining Partition and Random Testing

Software Testing, Black Box


In this paper we evaluate the potential in combining differ ent testing methodologies. The evaluation indicates an in crease in effectiveness when adding random testing to par tition testing. At the same time, the increase in ef´Čüciency inevitably fades because of the added number of random test cases being executed. Nevertheless, the potential in an automation scheme for creating and executing test cases is visible, thus indicat ing that a future implementation combining the best of two worlds, i.e. partition and random testing could be pursued.
