Data Flow Testing – Basic Idea

- Data-flow testing involves selecting entry/exit paths with the objective of covering certain data definition and use patterns, commonly known as data-flow criteria
- An outline of data-flow testing is as follows:
- Draw a data flow graph for the program
- Select data-flow testing criteria
- Identify paths in the data-flow graph to satisfy the selection criteria (i.e. all-defs, all-uses, all-P-uses/some-C-uses etc.)
- Produce test cases for the selected paths

Some Definitions (1)

- Node n in the CFG of program P is a defining node of the variable vV, written as DEF(v, n), iff the value of the variable v is unambiguously defined at the statement fragment corresponding to node n.
- Node n in the CFG of program P is a usage node of the variable vV, written as USE(v, n), iff the value of the variable v is used at the statement fragment corresponding to node n.

Some Definitions (2)

- A usage node USE(v, n), is a predicate use (denoted as P-use) iff the statement n is a predicate statement, otherwise USE(v, n) is a computation use or C-use
- The nodes corresponding to predicate uses have always an outdegree ≥ 2, and nodes corresponding to computation uses always have outdegree ≤ 1

Annotated Control Flow - Example

For X, Y Data Flows:

1 INPUT X,Y

Z:= X+Y

Y:= X-Y

3 IF Z>=0 GOTO SAM

4 JOE: Z:=Z-1

5 SAM: Z:=Z+V

U:=0

6 LOOP

B(U),Q(V):=(Z+V)*U

7 IF B(U)=0 GOTO JOE

Z:=Z-1

8 IF Z=0 GOTO ELL

U:=U+1

9 UNTIL U=z

B(U-1):=B(U+1)+Q(V-1)

10 ELL: B(U+Q(V)):=U+V

Some Definitions (3)

- A definition-use (sub)path with respect to a variable v (denoted as du-path) is a (sub)path in PATHS(P), where PATHS(P) is the set of all possible paths in the CFG of program P, such that, for some v in V, there are define and usage nodes DEF(v, m) and USE(v, n) such that m, and n are the initial and final nodes in the path respectively.
- A definition-clear (sub)path with respect to a variable v (denoted as dc-path) is a definition-use path in PATHS(P) with initial nodes DEF(v, m) and USE(v, n) such that there no other node in the path is a defining node for v

Some Definitions (4)

- A global definition is a definition of a variable x in node n if there is a definition of x in node n and there is a definition-clear path from n to some node m containing a global c-use of x, or containing a p-use of x. Note x is live at n
- A global c-use of variable x in node n is a c-use of variable x in node n and x has been defined in a node other than n

Some Definitions (5)

- Simple path is a path in which all nodes except possibly the first and the last are distinct
- Loop free path is a path in which all nodes are distinct
- Complete path is a path from the entry node to the exit node of the CFG
- Du-Path with respect to variable x at node n1is a path [n1, n2, …. nk] where n1 has a global definition of x and either
- Node nk has a global c-use of x and [n1….nk] is def-clear simple path with respect to x or,
- Node nk has a p-use of x and [n1….nj] is a def-clear loop-free path with respect to x

Definition / Use Associations - Example

What are the def-use associations for the program below?

1 read (z)2 x = 0 3 y = 04 if (z 0) {

5 x = sqrt (z)6 if (0 x && x 5)7 y = f (x) else8 y = h (z)

}

9 y = g (x, y)

10 print (y)

Definition / Use Associations - Example

def-use associations for variable z.

read (z)x = 0 y = 0if (z 0){

x = sqrt (z) if (0 x && x 5) y = f (x) else y = h (z)

}

y = g (x, y)

print (y)

Definition / Use Associations - Example

def-use associations for variable y.

read (z)x = 0 y = 0if (z 0){

x = sqrt (z) if (0 x && x 5)y = f (x) elsey = h (z)

}

y = g (x, y)

print (y)

DU-Path Test Coverage Criteria

- The basic idea is to use def-use information as defined in the previous slides and specific criteria in order to obtain specific paths in the CFG graph. These paths will then help us define specific test cases
- Let T be a set of feasible complete paths in the program’s P CFG, and V be the set of all variables in the program P

DU-Path Coverage Criteria (1)

- The set T satisfies the All-Defs criterion for a program P iff for every variable v in V, T contains definition clear (sub)paths from every defining node of v to a use of v. Note: Reaching definitions set)
- The set T satisfies the All-Uses criterion for the program P iff for every variable v in V, T contains definition-clear (sub)paths from every defining node of v to every use of v, and to the successor node of each USE(v, n) Note: def-use chains set
- We can distinguish between an All-C-Uses, or an All-P-Uses set

DU-Path Coverage Criteria (2)

- The set T satisfies the All-P-Uses/Some-C-Uses criterion for a program P iff for every variable v in V, T contains definition-clear (sub)paths from every defining node of v to every p-use of v, and if a definition of v has no p-uses, there is a definition-clear path to at least one c-use
- The set T satisfies the All-C-Uses/Some-P-Uses criterion for a program P iff for every variable v in V, T contains definition-clear (sub)paths from every defining node of v to every c-use of v, and if a definition of v has no c-uses, there is a definition-clear path to at least one p-use
- The set T satisfies the All-DU-Paths criterion for the program P iff for every variable v in V, T contains definition-clear (sub)paths from every defining node of v to every use of v, and to the successor node of each USE(v, n), and that these paths are either
