  • Patent number: 10970199
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention are directed to metamorphic relationship based code testing using mutant generators. The system is configured for identifying and remediating defects in an original program based on constructing at least one mutated program by distorting the original program, and analyzing expression of mutants in test results. In particular, the system receives a request to perform defect analysis of an original program. In response, the system constructs a first mutated program by embedding one or more mutants in the original program code. Moreover, the system typically maps the one or more mutants to one or more metamorphic relationships of process functions of the original program. The system may then implement tests of the original program and the first mutated program by providing one or more predetermined test cases as input to both, to determine whether the original program comprises at least one defect.

  • Patent number: 10877748
    Abstract: Computer software development has produced many advances within computer science and in most aspects of modern society. Even with modern quality control, bug finding, and other code checking applications, computer software is often less than ideal. A developer may write code that is functionally accurate but lacks security, documentation, speed, storage, reusability, or other element that may make a segment of software code less than ideal. Identifying equivalent code and, when found, replacing it with a vetted equivalent promotes the deployment of software that is more robust, secure, usable and reusable, and/or satisfies performance or other objectives.
