With the exponential growth in size and complexity of softwares, the testing activity is no more limited to testing phase of SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle). Testing process has been made iterative and incremental in Object Oriented development scenario. This leads to increase in effort and time required for testing as well as explosion in test case. But when it comes to regression testing, it has the additional issue of test case retesting which further increasing the effort and time. So a suitable prioritization technique should be used to address these issues. In this paper we had given a proposal which is based on prioritization of test cases using GA (Genetic Algorithm). This process is found to be very effective during regression testing. In this paper we found an optimized independent path having maximum critical path value, which further leads to prioritization of test cases. The three component of regression testing i.e effort, time, cost will be gradually reduce by using this approach.
