2016 (English)In: SAC '16 Proceedings of the 31st Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing, ACM Digital Library, 2016, 1566-1569 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In most of the research on software testability, functionalcorrectness of the software has been the focus while the ev-idence regarding testability and non-functional propertiessuch as performance is sporadic. The objective of this studyis to present the current state-of-the-art related to issuesof importance, types and domains of software under test,types of research, contribution types and design evaluationmethods concerning testability and software performance.We nd that observability, controllability and testing e ortare the main testability issues while timeliness and responsetime (i.e., time constraints) are the main performance issuesin focus. The primary studies in the area use diverse types ofsoftware under test within di erent domains, with real-timesystems as being a dominant domain. The researchers haveproposed many di erent methods in the area, however thesemethods lack implementation in practice as suggested byour gures for research type, contribution type and designevaluation methods.
