  abstract =     "Software testing is an expensive process, which is
                 vital in the industry. Construction of the test-data in
                 software testing requires the major cost and to decide
                 which method to use in order to generate the test data
                 is important. This paper discusses the efficiency of
                 search-based algorithms (preferably genetic algorithm)
                 versus random testing, in software test-data
                 generation. This study differs from all previous
                 studies due to sample programs (SUTs) which are used.
                 Since we want to increase the complexity of SUTs
                 gradually, and the program generation is automatic as
                 well, Grammatical Evolution is used to guide the
                 program generation. SUTs are generated according to the
                 grammar we provide, with different levels of
                 complexity. SUTs will first undergo genetic algorithm
                 and then random testing. Based on the test results,
                 this paper recommends one method to use for automation
                 of software testing.",
