VR-TestCoverage: Test Coverage Visualization and Immersion in Virtual Reality

  • With the increasing pressure to deliver additional software functionality, software engineers and developers are often confronted with the dilemma of sufficient software testing. One aspect to avoid is test redundancy, and measuring test (or code or statement) coverage can help focus test development on those areas that are not yet sufficiently tested. As software projects grow, it can be difficult to visualize both the software product and the software testing area and their dependencies. This paper contributes VR-TestCoverage, a Virtual Reality (VR) solution concept for visualizing and interacting with test coverage, test results, and test dependency data in VR. Our VR implementation shows its feasibility. The evaluation results based on a case study show its support for three testing-related scenarios.
