A Test Generation Strategy for Pairwise Testing
January 2002 (vol. 28 no. 1)
pp. 109-111

Pairwise testing is a specification-based testing criterion, which requires that for each pair of input parameters of a system, every combination of valid values of these two parameters be covered by at least one test case. In this paper, we propose a new test generation strategy for pairwise testing.
