Basis Path Testing

[article]
Summary:

Given that testing, like all other development activities has a limited amount of resources (time, people, equipment), the challenge is to select a set of test cases that is most likely to identify as many different potential defects as possible within those limits. To do this, we must eliminate as much redundancy as possible from the testing process while still insuring adequate test coverage.
