wednesday 15:35 - 16:25
We present some initial work using symbolic evaluation to map out the interaction patterns
among configuration options in a configurable system. We compare our findings to the use of combinatorial testing
approaches, such as covering arrays. We find that for a small set of subject programs, only a very small set of configuration
options really interact.
wednesday 13:10 - 14:00
We have a system and infrastructure for creating and executing large-scale
test processes for configurable systems. Our project is called Skoll. This talk will look at one practical application
of Skoll, continuous testing of the MySqL server.
