Abstract: We describe in this paper a choice relation framework for supporting category-partition test case generation. We capture the constraints among various values (or ranges of values) of the parameters and environment conditions identified from the specification, known formally as choices. We express these constraints in terms of relations among choices and combinations of choices, known formally as test frames. We propose a theoretical backbone and techniques for consistency checks and automatic deductions of relations. Based on the theory, algorithms have been developed for generating test frames from the relations. These test frames can then be used as the basis for generating test cases. Our algorithms take into consideration the resource constraints specified by software testers, thus maintaining the effectiveness of the test frames (and hence test cases) generated.
