This paper presents the Coevolutionary Automated Software Correction system, which addresses in an integral and fully automated manner the complete cycle of software artifact testing, error location, and correction phases. It employs a coevolutionary approach where software artifacts and test cases are evolved in tandem. The test cases evolve to better find flaws in the software artifacts and the software artifacts evolve to better behave to specification when exposed to the test cases, thus causing an evolutionary arms race. Experimental results are presented on the same test problem employed in the published results on the previous state-of-the-art automated software correction system.
