A Collaborative Filtering Recommender System for Test Case Prioritization in Web Applications.

Hyunsook Do, Maral Azizi

The use of relevant metrics of software systems could improve various software engineering tasks, but identifying relationships among metrics is not simple and can be very time consuming. Recommender systems can help with this decision-making process, many applications have utilized these systems to improve the performance of their applications. To investigate the potential benefits of recommender systems in regression testing, we implemented an item-based collaborative filtering recommender system that uses user interaction data and application change history information to develop a test case prioritization technique. To evaluate our approach, we performed an empirical study using three web applications with multiple versions and compared four control techniques. Our results indicate that our recommender system can help improve the effectiveness of test prioritization.
