A generic approach for modeling test case priorities with applications for test development and execution
This contribution addresses systematic test development methods to include an algorithm to retrieve a test suite execution control in order to run test cases with high priority earlier than others. The approach uses a model that allows both the introduction of user-defined weightings for system features within the test model and an automatic calculation of the test ordering. Based on an algorithm for the calculation of test case weights first results from the application of a tool implementation in pilot projects have been described.
