Abstract

Software testing and metrics are two important approaches to assure the reliability and quality of software. Testing and metrics of sequential programs have been fairly sophisticated processes, with various methodologies and tools available for use in building and demonstrating the correctness of a program. The emergence of concurrent programming in the recent years, however, introduces new testing problems and difficulties that cannot be solved by testing techniques of traditional sequential programs. One of the difficult tasks is that concurrent programs can have many instances of execution for the same set of input data. Many concurrent program testing methodologies are proposed to solve contro
