Abstract

A problem facing those conducting maintenance testing is to\nidentify proper test classes. The notion of regression testability is\nintroduced as a way to measure the ease of retesting. Both the program\ndesign and the test plan design may affect the regression testability of\na program. The testing set, testing number, regression number and stable\nand workable metrics are developed to measure the program and the test\nplan and program testability is defined. The retest strategy is proposed\nfor performing corrective regression testing. This approach involves the\nuse of the test plan in a way that will reduce the amount of testing\nrequired. The guiding principle of the retest strategy is to view the\nregression testing problem as being composed of two subproblems (the\ntest selection problem and the test plan update problem). To this end,\nthe author's retest strategy consists of two major phases (the test\nclassification phase and test plan update phase)
