Pervasive context-aware software is an emerging kind of application.
Many of these systems register parts of their context-aware logic
in the middleware.
On the other hand, most conventional
testing techniques do not consider such kind of application logic.
This paper proposes a novel family of testing criteria to measure
the comprehensiveness of their test sets.
It stems from context-aware data flow information.
Firstly, it studies the evolution of contexts, which are environmental
information relevant to an application program.
It then proposes context-aware data flow associations and testing criteria.
Corresponding algorithms are given.
It uses a prototype testing tool to conduct experimentation on an
RFID-based location sensing software running on top of context-aware
The experimental results show that our approach is applicable,
effective, and promising.
Keywords: Context-aware applications, RFID, test adequacy
