Abstract

Regression testing is used to ensure the validity of the changed software. Due to time budget and entire test suite could not be executed. Hence it becomes an essential to minimize the test suite and choose a subset of test cases from test suite which will be executed in least time and has the capability to cover all the faults. Hence reordering the test case on the basis of time fault, test case prioritization technique prioritizes the test cases using fault detection algorithm, which is proposed in this study. After finding the faults in the code, the source code will be processed in the open source system like Webkit.
