ICSE 2019
Sat 25 - Fri 31 May 2019 Montreal, QC, Canada
Wed 29 May 2019 16:00 - 16:20 at Duluth - Test Selection and Prioritization Chair(s): Robert Feldt

The cost of software testing has become a burden for software companies in the era of rapid release and continuous integration. Our industrial collaborator Ericsson also faces the challenges of expensive testing processes which are typically part of a complex and specialized testing environment. In order to assist Ericsson with improving the test effectiveness of one of its large subsystems, we adopt test selection and prioritization approaches based on test execution history from prior research. By adopting and simulating those approaches on six months of testing data from our subject system, we confirm the existence of valuable information in the test execution history. In particular, the association between test failures provide the most value to the test selection and prioritization processes. More importantly, during this exercise, we encountered various challenges that are unseen or undiscussed in prior research. We document the challenges, our solutions and the lessons learned as an experience report. Our experiences can be valuable for other software testing practitioners and researchers who would like to adopt existing test effectiveness improvement approaches into their work environment.
