Recovering Test-to-Code Traceability Via Slicing and Conceptual Coupling
Maintaining trace ability links between application code and unit test cases plays an important role for effectively managing the development and evolution of software systems. Unfortunately, the support in the contemporary development environment to identify such links is still inadequate. This research presents an automated solution to recover trace ability links between test cases and classes under test. The approach is based on dynamic slicing and conceptual coupling. A preliminary evaluation indicates that the proposed approach identifies trace ability links between unit test cases and tested classes with a high accuracy and greater stability than existing techniques.
