International Journal of Engineering Research and Applications (IJERA)
In this paper, the authors review the search based software engineering research and finds the major milestones in this direction. The SBSE approach has been the topic of several surveys and reviews. Search Based Software Engineering (SBSE) consists of the application of search-based optimization to software engineering. Using SBSE, a software engineering task is formulated as a search problem by defining a suitable candidate solution representation and a fitness function to differentiate between solution candidates. This paper gives an overview of major research studies undertaken in the domain.
