Co-testability Transformation

08351.McMinnPhilip.Paper.2013.pdf (0.03 MB)


This paper introduces the notion of ‘co-testability
transformation’. As opposed to traditional testability transformations, which replace the original program in testing,
co-testability transformations are designed to be used in
conjunction with the original program (and any additional
co-transformations as well). Until now, testability transformations have only been used to improve test data generation. However, co-testability transformations can function as partial oracles. This paper demonstrates practical usage of a co-testability transformation for automatically detecting floating-point errors in program code.
