A Practical Strategy for Testing Pair-Wise Coverage of Network Interfaces

[article]
Summary:
This paper presents on combinatorial test design offers a guide to the theory and practical application of the method of orthogonal arrays to generate system test configurations that achieve pair-wise parameter coverage.

This paper presents a guide to the theory and practical application of the method of orthogonal arrays, also called orthogonal Latin squares, to generate system test configurations that achieve pair-wise parameter coverage.

We explore how to apply the theory in practice when there are dependent parameters or when there are differing numbers of parameters are also included.
