What Techniques Can Be Used for GUI Risk-based Testing?

Behzad Nazarbakhsh, Dietmar Pfahl

Abstract

Risk-based testing (RBT) is an approach that uses metrics to find critical parts of software applications under test. In order to understand to what extend RBT has been applied for GUI testing, and to capture the lessons learned, we conducted a literature review. Based on the selected literature, we discuss the advantages that RBT may bring to the various activities involved in testing. Moreover, we analyze the rationale for applying different variants of RBT presented in the selected literature. Finally, we discuss the RBT techniques which can be specifically used for GUI testing.
