Abstract: Regression Testing is a very expensive activity which is to be completed in a very limited time span. Regression test case selection is an effective technique which helps in reducing the cost and time of the testing. To select the efficient test cases for regression test case selection technique, metaheuristic algorithms Tabu Search and Genetic Algorithm are used.
Keywords: Genetic Algorithm, Metaheuristics, NP-hard, Regression Testing, Tabu Search.
