Regression testing is a maintenance activity that is performed to ensure the validity of modified software. The activity takes a lot of time to run the entire test suite and is very expensive. Thus it becomes a necessity to choose the minimum set of test cases with the ability to cover all the faults in minimum time. The paper presents a new test case reduction hybrid technique based on Genetic algorithms(GA) and bee colony optimization (BCO) .GA is an evolutionary algorithms (EA), which generate solutions to optimization problems using techniques inspired by natural evolution, such as inheritance, mutation, selection, and crossover. BCO is a swarm intelligence algorithm. The proposed approach adopts the behavior of bees to solve the given problem. It proves to be optimistic approach which provides optimum results in minimum time.
