Abstract: - Software testing is used to improve software quality by finding fault in the software. To verify the software behavior, testers require test oracle, which is a reliable source of expected software behavior and provides outputs for any input specified in the software specifications and a comparator to verify actual results generated by the software. While test automation requires automated oracle support, oracle automation is considered as a challenging task. These challenges include the automation required in expected output generation and results verification. This paper presents the overview of test oracle and the methods available for the same.
