Updating requirements from tests during maintenance and evolution


Ben Charrada, Eya (2010). Updating requirements from tests during maintenance and evolution. In: Doctoral Symposium of the 18th ACM SIGSOFT International Symposium on Foundations of Software Engineering, Santa Fe, USA, 7 November 2010 - 11 November 2010, 337-340.

Abstract

Keeping requirements specification up-to-date during the evolution of a software system is an expensive task. Consequently, specifications are usually not updated and rapidly become obsolete and unreliable. The goal of our research is to preserve the alignment between requirements and the implementation by supporting the maintenance of the specification. In this proposal, we explore the idea of using tests to automatically generate hints about the evolution of requirements. We discuss the main research questions that need to be addressed, and propose ideas to approach them.
