Executive Summary

Code coverage is often defined as a measure of the degree to which the source code of a program has been tested. Various metrics for measuring code coverage exist. The number of defects is an important measure of software quality which is widely used in industry. Software test coverage tools can easily and accurately measure the extent to which the software has been exercised. Both testing time and test coverage can be used as measures to model the defect finding process.
