About A mutation testing tool for Java


Description

Mutation is a technique used anytime when the adequacy of a set of test cases is needed, or even to generate oracles. The principle is simple. However, at this moment there is no good mutation tool for Java available. Muclipse was a rather good working plugin for Eclipse, but is not supported anymore and new tools are not verbal enough and just return a mutation score. The student will build a competent mutation tool as plugin for Eclipse. Extras: Investigate ways to speed up the process of mutants generation and solve the problem of equivalent mutants.
