Test case aggregation for efficient feature model testing

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk at conference or symposiumScience to science


The increasing size and complexity of feature models (FM) requires the provision of efficient testing and debugging techniques. Feature models can be tested, for example, with regard to their conformance with a pre-defined set of analysis operations. In this paper, we show how the number of consistency checks for FM testing can be reduced on the basis of test case aggregation. Using a divide-and-conquer based approach, we show how to transform a feature model test suite into a corresponding aggregated representation where individual test cases can be combined if specific consistency criteria are fulfilled. Performance improvements are also analyzed on the basis of a best- and worst-case runtime analysis.
