Abstract

The automatic generation of test data has been used as a tool for the black box testing of both compilers and electronic hardware, but only rarely has it been applied to the testing of other types of software. This paper reviews the the main techniques that have been employed in these generators, giving the advantages and disadvantages of this approach, and how it might be applied to a far wider range of software as a powerful software tool to complement other methods of testing.
