Methods for Testing Concurrent Software

Abstract [en]

 

Most software today is concurrent and are used in everything from cell-

phones, washing machines, cars to aircraft control systems. The reliability

of the concurrent software may be more or less critical, depending on which

a.o. domain it is functioning in. Irrespective of domain, the concurrent

software must be sufficiently reliable.

It is therefore interesting to study how adaptable test methods for sequential

software are to test concurrent software. Novel test methods for concurrent

software can be developed by adapting test methods for sequential software.

In this dissertation, adaptability factors have been identified by conducting

a literature survey over state-of-the-art test methods. Directions taken in

the research of concurrent software testing is described by the survey. The

survey also demonstrates differences and similarities between test methods.

Three research contributions has been achieved by this dissertation. First,

this dissertation presents a survey over state-of-the-art-test methods. The

second contribution is the identified adaptability factors that should be

added to a test method for sequential software, that will be adapted to test

concurrent software. Finally, the third contribution to the field of concurrent

software testing is the identified future work in areas where test methods for

concurrent software has not been researched much or at all.
