Many empirical studies have been performed to evaluate software testing methods in past decades. However, we are still not able to generalize the results as most studies are not complete and differ significantly from one another. To contribute to the existing knowledge base of software testing methods, we performed an empirical study to evaluate 3 testing methods: (1) code reading by stepwise abstraction, (2) functional testing using equivalence partitioning and boundary value analysis, and (3) structural tes…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
