Software testing takes a considerable amount of time and resources spent on producing software it would be useful to have ways to reduce the cost of software testing so one of them is automatic test data generator-a system that automatically generates test data for a given program. This paper presents a big bang-big crunch concept based search algorithm for automatic generation of structural software tests. Big bang-big crunch algorithm is a new meta-heuristic population based algorithm that relies on one of the theories of evolution of universe, namely, the big bang-big crunch theory.
