Abstract

In this thesis, we propose a black-box testing method that derives important test cases by including usage statistics, and enables a product manager to make a release decision with the rationale, "the important use cases specified in the usage statistics are tested and have no error."

First, we propose a method to specify components with Trace Function Method (TFM) module interface specifications. Then, we propose a way to associate module usage statistics with the TFM module interface specification. Finally, we propose a method to generate a prioritized list of black-box test cases for component testing and integration testing from the TFM module interface specification with usage statistics.
