Abstract

The complexity of some systems output makes its automated test require significant efforts. This sandwich proposal presents a research that addresses to testing oracle automation method to systems with complex output domains. During the sandwich we will evaluate the effectiveness of using testing oracles in complex output domain systems, such as Text-to-speech systems, virtual reality systems or user interfaces. The results may provide an effective automated testing oracle technique, supporting the quality improvement of systems with complex outputs. Improvement in productivity and in the research results, joint publications with the another Software Engineering Group (University of Maryland) and human resources in the candidate are some of the expected gains.
