Regression Testing, Regression Test Selection, Test Case Minimization, Test Case Prioritization,


Regression testing is expensive but an essential activity in software maintenance. Regression testing validates modified software and ensure that the modified parts of the program do not introduce unexpected errors. This paper briefly describes an overview of regression testing specifically regression test selection techniques. Most regression test selection techniques are based on program slicing techniques.
