On the Effectiveness of Mutation Analysis as a Black Box Testing Technique
Found in: Software Engineering Conference, Australian
By Tafline Murnane, Karl Reed
Issue Date:August 2001
pp. 0012
Abstract: The technique of mutation testing, in which the effectiveness of tests is determined by creating variants of a program in which statements are mutated, is well known. Whilst of considerable theoretical interest the technique requires costly tools...
 
Towards the New Era of Global Aviation Electronic Data Exchange: Ensuring Completeness, Consistency and Quality in Data Migration

Tailoring of Black-Box Testing Methods
Found in: Software Engineering Conference, Australian
By Tafline Murnane, Karl Reed, Richard Hall
Issue Date:April 2006
pp. 292-299
Currently, black-box testing methods are effective yet incomplete. Consequently, test engineers may find it necessary to perform ad hoc customisation for each application under test. In this paper, we present procedures for customising black-box methods th...
 
Towards Describing Black-Box Testing Methods as Atomic Rules
Found in: Computer Software and Applications Conference, Annual International
By Tafline Murnane, Richard Hall, Karl Reed
Issue Date:July 2005
pp. 437-442
Ideally, all black-box testing methods should be interpreted in the same way by different testers. In reality however, inconsistencies and ambiguities in original method descriptions may lead to differing interpretations and varying test set quality. In th...
 
Why We Need A Different View of Software Architecture
Found in: Software Architecture, Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on
By Jason Baragry, Karl Reed
Issue Date:August 2001
pp. 125
The definition and understanding of software architectures and architecture views still shows considerable disagreement in the software engineering community. This paper argues that the problems we face exist because our understanding is based on specious ...
