Abstract

Automated test suite generation (ATSG) is an important topic in software engineering, with a wide range of techniques and tools being used in academia and industry. While their usefulness is widely recognized, due to the labor-intensive nature of the task, the effectiveness of the different techniques in automatically generating test cases for different software systems is not thoroughly understood. Despite many studies introducing various ATSG techniques, much remains to be learned, however, about what makes a particular technique work well (or not) for a specific software system. In this paper, we seek an answer to the question: 'What features of a software system impact the effectiveness ..
