Comparing Two Black-box Testing Strategies for Software Product Lines

Paola AcciolyPaulo BorbaRodrigo Bonifacio

SPL testing has been considered a challenging task, mainly due to the diversity of products that might be generated from an SPL. To deal with this problem, some techniques for deriving product specific functional test cases have been proposed. However, this research area still lacks empirical studies showing the benefits of using such techniques. This paper presents a study that empirically compares two different black-box manual test design techniques: a generic technique that we have observed in a industrial test execution environment and a product specific technique whose functional test cases could be derived using any SPL technique that considers variations in functional tests. We evaluated their impact from the point of view of the test execution process, achieving results that indicate that executing product specific test cases is faster and generates fewer errors.
