Abstract: The motivation behind this prioritization is to improve the probability that if the experiments are utilized for relapse testing in the given request, they will more firmly meet some goal than they would on the off chance that they were executed in some unique request. A few associations want to run “Smoke” or “Sanity” test each time they get another form or form of the creating software. For this situation, experiments will be organize dependent on all the real modules of the software and sanity will be kept running on them to check the fundamental usefulness for instance, in a mobile testing, sanity test suite will have experiments like “restarting the gadget”, “killing”, “marking in”, “refreshing software” etc. Whether the company runs relapse or sanity or both, Test Case Prioritization procedures are pertinent for every one of the cases. Organizing experiments should be possible based on necessities, expenses of bug fixing, history of the parent gadget and so forth. In this paper we apply a novel approach of data structures to develop a friendship relation between similar test cases so as to not spend time on testing similar functional test cases. At the end of the paper we find appreciable experimental results which outweigh the current techniques used in software testing area.
