Title: Patterns in Testing Concurrent Programs with Non-deterministic Behaviors
Author(s): Tasharofi, Samira and Johnson, Ralph
Subject(s): Testing Patterns Concurrent programs
Abstract: Concurrent programs are hard to test because of the non- determinism inherit in them. Since non-determinism is one of the major sources of bugs, it is important to to be tested. We studied the test suites of four open source concurrent libraries and discovered that the tests fall into three dif- ferent patterns. One of the patterns avoids testing non- determinism while the other two control the schedule of the program execution to manage that.
