Abstract

Software testing is one of the most important means that guarantee software quality and reliability. Meanwhile, improving the automation level of testing is also very important to ensure software development quality and decrease software development cost. DO-178B provides the different criteria of structure coverage for different levels of software. This paper presents a test data automatic generation method based on genetic algorithm. This approach builds the decision tree from truth table to extract the minimum data set according to modified condition/decision coverage criteria, converts the problem of testing case data generation to another problem, which is searching the optimized solution from program code by applying the genetic algorithm. At last, the analysis of experiments proves the effectiveness of the approach.
