Software plays an integral part in our everyday lives today because of its near ubiquitous influence in our increasingly technological society. Therefore, taking appropriate steps to apply software testing techniques is of paramount importance. To promote advanced software testing theory, techniques, and tools, the IEEE Reliability Society, in collaboration with the Computer Science Department at the University of Texas at Dallas as well as other sponsors will host an IEEE International Software Testing Contest on Saturday, February 2nd, 2019 at UT Dallas.
Pizza lunch will be provided.
All contestants must bring their own laptops. The contest has two parts:
- The first part is a 2-hour tutorial (10 am to 12noon).
- We will help contestants properly configure their laptops, and explain how to use JUnit & Mooctest.net platform. Each contestant is required to have basic knowledge about Java programming. We will serve Pizza for lunch.
- The second part is the contest (1pm−4:30pm).
- The contest is individually based. Each contestant will design test cases with specific input values based on the given source code and specification to test two Java programs. The quality of test cases will be measured by the code coverage and mutation score achieved.
Laptops used for this contest must have the following software installed:
- Windows 7 or later versions
- Java JDK 1.7 (cannot be other JDK versions)
- Eclipse Luna (cannot be other Eclipse versions)
We will help contestants configure their laptops during the Tutorial session.
