Abstract

Applying MC/DC criterion to real-world projects can be expensive due to not only the cost of commercial tools, but also the difficulty of generating test cases to achieve high coverage. To lower the expense from both aspects, this paper presents an easy-to-use and openly accessible MC/DC measurement tool, MCDC-Star, that provides an accurate measurement on MC/DC coverage for software written in multiple programming languages and aids practitioners in generating test cases that can achieve high MC/DC overage in an effective way.
