Event-based mutation testing vs. State-based mutation testing - comparison using a web-based system

Mutlu Beyazıt , Timon Sebastian Deistler and Nida Gökçe


The idea of using models in mutation analysis dates back to mid 1980s. Recently, it is shown that, with some proper adaptations, mutation testing can also be utilized as a black-box testing approach. For this purpose, a modeling structure, a set of mutation operators, coverage criteria and test case generation methods are required. This paper compares event-based and state-based realizations of this testing approach over a case study and achieves experimental and comparative results, while validating the applicability of the discussed notions.
