Title: METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR OPTIMIZING SOFTWARE TESTING
Abstract:
The invention enables optimizing test case coverage for improved software testing. The invention comprises (i) parsing text of a requirements specification, (ii) performing parts-of-speech (POS) tagging of the parsed text, (iii) correlating a first set of elements comprising a plurality of POS tagged words with a second set of elements represented within a software ontology, (iv) categorizing each element within the first set of elements as a state or as an event, and (v) generating a set of test cases, wherein generating said set of test cases comprises generating a cartesian product of the set of determined states and the set of determined events.
