- Mutation testing is a white-box fault-based software testing technique that applies mutation operators to modify program source code or byte code in small ways and then runs these modified programs (i.e., mutants) against a test suite in order to measure its effectiveness and locate the weaknesses either in the test data or in the program that are seldom or never exposed during normal execution. In this paper, we describe our implementation of a generic mutation testing framework and the results of applying three sets of concurrency mutation operators on four example Java programs through empirical study and analysis.
