Test the Test – Enhanced Test Quality with Mutation Testing
According to safety standards, the development of safety critical systems requires well-defined functional and non-functional tests The quality of testing is crucial for the safety and security of an embedded application. Compliance with the required test methods of the standards and the test quality can only be checked manually in a review. Mutation testing automatically checks the error detection capabilities of existing test cases and provides a useful measure for the test case quality. This presentation describes an efficient approach to mutation testing. The C/C++ code to be tested will slightly be mutated at error sensitive locations so that typical programming errors will be present. If the available unit and integration tests detect the mutation, they are scored to be useful. Applying this method on existing test suites reveals weak test cases and achieves a better quality in testing and helps fulfilling the requirements of the standards.
