Abstract: In Software development, Testing plays an important role. Testing becomes tedious with increase in no of test cases. Test Suite size increases and it becomes difficulty with redundant test cases and faulty test cases. Localization of fault is the process of isolating faulty location of program during its execution. Current approach uses the comparison of a successful run test case with a failed run test case spectrum for identification of faults. Along with above specified approach, criteria of program cohesion and program history are also used in effective localization of faulty components. The results suggest better performance when compared with other scenarios.
