Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Texas, Arlington have released a variety of briefings, reports, and results concerning the automated combinatorial testing for software.
Acts is a test generation tool for constructing t-way combinatorial test sets developed using the Java API. Acts has a Java-Swing based User Interface which allows the user to define a System under test, constraints and relations.. Currently, it supports t-way test set generation with t ranging from 2 to 6. Combinatorial testing has been shown very effective in detecting faults that are caused by unexpected interactions between different contributing factors.
An easy-to-use GUI is included and tool shows smaller test sets (with the same degree of coverage) and is faster than others.
