Automated Test Coverage:
Taking Your Test Suites To the Next Level

Thank you for your interest in Automated Test Coverage: Taking Your Test Suites To the Next Level. This paper and presentation were part of the International Conference on Practical Software Quality Techniques/Practical Software Testing Techniques, 2004 East. Please note: I am no longer employed by Apex CoVantage, though the email address listed for me in the paper is still good.

Here are the paper and slides in PDF format. Here is the paper in HTML format. You can also find the downloadable example code here in gzipped tar format or in zip format. Please note that all the text files in the downloadable example code except for the two README.txt files use UNIX-style newlines. Most Windows software development environments don't have any trouble with this, but some editors do.

In October, 2007, I released an automated test framework called QTest which is based on the code presented in this paper but with a more modernized interface. Support for the coverage system is fully integrated into this test system.

If you have any questions or comments about this material, please feel free to contact me at the email address in the paper.
