9 COMBINATIVE AND COMBINATORIAL TESTING

WHY IS THIS CHAPTER WORTH READING?

In this chapter, you will learn why combinative and combinatorial testing are important and what the main techniques are regarding test design. We introduce a new testing technique and analyse its reliability. We compare the usability of the described techniques from two aspects: when the code has either computational or control-flow faults. Finally, as well as the TVM, we give another complex example.

Combinatorial testing aims to determine data combinations to be tested. In a complex testing environment, this testing technique has practically two main application areas: (1) testing combinations of configuration parameter values and (2) testing combinations of input ...
