Combinatorial Software Testing

“Combinatorial testing can detect hard-to-find software faults more efficiently than manual test case selection methods.” Developers of large data-intensive software often notice an interesting—though not surprising—phenomenon: When usage of an application jumps dramatically, components that have operated for months without trouble suddenly develop previously undetected errors. For example, newly added customers may have account records …
