Testing Applications with Data Anonymization (TaDa!)

Testing Applications with Data Anonymization (TaDa!) targets a  problem of improving the quality of testing when privacy laws  prohibit data owners to share data with testers. Please read our  award-winning ISSRE paper to get more information. 

Inferring Types of References to GUI Objects in Test Scripts

We offer a novel approach for Type Inference of GUI Object References  (TIGOR) in test scripts. TIGOR makes types of GUI objects explicit in the  source code of scripts, enabling test engineers to reason more effectively about  the interactions between operations in complex test scripts and GUI objects  that these operations reference. We describe our implementation and give an  algorithm for automatically inferring types of GUI objects. We built a tool and  evaluated it on different GAPs. Our experience suggests that TIGOR is practical  and efficient, and it yields appropriate types of GUI objects.
