Most software systems are designed to provide custom functionality using configuration options. Testing such systems is challenging as running tests of a single configuration is often not sufficient, because defects may appear in other configurations. Ideally, all configurations of a software system should be tested, which is usually not applicable in practice due to the combinatorial explosion with respect to the configuration options. Multiple sampling strategies aim to reduce the set of tested configurations to a feasible amount, such as T-wise sampling, random generation, and user-defined configurations. However, these strategies are often not applied in practice as they require manual effort or a specialized testing framework. Within our tool FeatureIDE, we integrate all aforementioned strategies and reduce the manual effort by automating the process of generating and testing configurations. Furthermore, we provide support for unit testing to avoid redundant test executions and for variability-aware testing. With this extension of FeatureIDE, we aim to make recent testing techniques for configurable systems applicable in practice.
