Empirical Software Engineering
First, an introduction to the field of empirical software engineering will be given The importance of being able to replicate results will be emphasized. Then the results of a replication study, a software testing experiment, will be presented. It will be shown that in the replication study, with automated supported, state-based testing was found to fall less short of the effectiveness achieved by use-case testing.
