There have been numerous studies on the effectiveness of partition
and random testing.
In particular, the proportional sampling
strategy has been proved, under certain conditions, to be the
only form of partition testing that outperforms random testing
regardless of where the failure-causing inputs are.
This paper provides an integrated synthesis and overview of our
recent studies on the proportional sampling strategy and its
Through this synthesis, we offer a perspective that properly
interprets the results obtained so far, and present some of the
interesting issues involved and new insights obtained during the
course of this research.
