What is a Feasible Path?

A control flow path through a function or a procedure is possible if there is an assignment to input values which drives execution down the path. We can also make use of a regular expression to describe a set of paths.

Feasible Path Analysis depends on:

  • Associated type of constants and variable declarations of a function.

  • The Path from start to end.

Methods:

The path can be well analysed using White Box testing technique, in which test cases are constructed from code without reference to requirements or specifications. A collection of test cases are constructed to satisfy one or more coverage criteria.

  • Statement Coverage : Each statement of the program should be exercised with minimal number of tests.

  • Decision Coverage : The outcome of every decision should exercised to true and false.

  • Condition Coverage : Apart from testing the outcomes of each decision, the various ways of in which each outcome can be reached through different values of subconditions within a decision must be exercised.

  • Path Coverage : All the control flow paths through out the program is tested.
