Branch Coverage for Arbitrary Languages Made Easy

Member Submitted

Branch coverage is an important measure of the thoroughness of testing. One can get coverage tools for mainstream languages (C, Ada) on mainstream platforms (Solaris, UNIX), but not for unusual languages (JavaScript) or running on nonstandard platforms (C in embedded systems). This paper shows how program transformation systems can install test probes in software systems easily. This means test coverage is possible for all kinds of software in all kinds of execution environments.
