Journal: upcoming project: BNF, testcase generation, cover all pairs

Journal by bob_jenkins

I'm going to write a tool that takes BNF as input, plus a list of restrictions, and generates testcases that cover all pairs of elements in the BNF. What should I call it? BNFpairs, perhaps?

I already have a tool, jenny, that does the same thing, except the input is a list of independent dimensions each consisting of a number of mutually exclusive options. Perhaps I shouldn't have a new tool, but should just add this new interface to jenny? There are tools by others, ALLPAIRS and AETG, that have the same functionality as jenny. I haven't seen any existing tools that do that for BNF, though.
