Abstract—Software testing is a necessary process to ensure
quality of software. Unfortunately, it is usually perceived as a
very difficult process for inexperienced software developers.
Defect-driven Development (DDD) is a novel development
concept which aims to bridge such gap. DDD helps
inexperienced developers to automatically generate essential
test cases and scripts from defect information collected from a
knowledge base. This research describes an implementation of
the concept as well as its performance evaluation. The result
suggests that this technique helps beginners to create an
equivalent effectiveness level of unit test compared to experts in
both term of time used and defect density.
Index Terms—Software testing, defect-driven development, automatic test case generation.
