Reduction of Computational Cost in Mutation Testing by Sampling Mutants

Ilona Bluemke , Karol Kulesza


The objective of this chapter is to explore the reduction of computational costs of mutation testing by randomly sampling mutants. Several experiments were conducted in the Eclipse environment using MuClipse and CodePro plugins and especially designed and implemented tools: Mutants Remover and Console Output Analyser. Six types of mutant’ subsets were generated and examined. Mutation score and the source code coverage were used to evaluate the effectiveness of mutation testing with subsets of mutants. The ability to detect errors introduced “on purpose” in the source code was also examined.
