Abstract

This report describes the use of combinatorial test methods to reduce the cost of testing for the Document Object Model Events standard while maintaining an equivalent level of assurance. More than 36,000 tests - all possible combinations of equivalence class values - were reduced by approximately a factor of 20 with no reduction in error detection effectiveness.
