Advancing energy testing of mobile applications

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The rising popularity of mobile apps deployed on battery-constrained devices has motivated the need for effective energy-aware testing techniques. However, currently there is a lack of test generation tools for exercising the energy properties of apps. Automated test generation is not useful without tools that help developers to measure the quality of the tests. Additionally, the collection of tests generated for energy testing could be quite large, as it may involve a test suite that covers all the energy hotspots under different use cases. Thereby, there is a need for techniques to manage the size of test suite, while maintaining its effectiveness in revealing energy defects. Our research plan to advance energy testing for mobile applications include various techniques for energy-aware test generation, energy-aware test-suite adequacy assessment, and energy-aware test-suite minimization.
