Title: An Emperical Evaluation Of Adequacy Criteria For Testing Concurrent Programs
Author: Saini, Gaurav
Abstract: A concurrent program contains two or more threads that execute concurrently and work together to perform some task . Concurrency increases the efficiency of a program . Testing of concurrent programs has been a challenging task because of the inherent non -determinism . Most approaches proposed for concurrent program testing employ , explicitly or implicitly , a coverage criterion to measure test adequacy . In order to apply those approaches , we must first choose a criterion that suits best for our programs . There is a need for quantitative results of evaluation regarding the effectiveness of the various coverage criteria used for the testing of concurrent programs . Such an evaluation can be useful to select a particular criterion for a specific set of concurrent programs . This thesis tries to evaluate the effectiveness of some of these criteria and puts forth the quantitative results for such an evaluation .
