Software testing is the most practical approach to ensure the quality of a software. Random testing is a basic testing technique that can be used alone or as a core technique for many test methods. Recently, we have proposed to improve the fault-detection capability of random testing by enforcing a more even, well-spread distribution of test cases over the input domain. Such an approach is named as adaptive random testing. In this seminar, we are going to report various methods to implement ART, their fault detection capabilities and related problems.
