Test suite augmentation is an important technique for quality assurance of evolved software. In rapid evolution of software development, engineers usually combine black-box and white-box test suites to facilitate understanding and management. This paper presents a research proposal on test suite augmentation via integrating black- and white-box testing techniques. There are two directions of our test suite augmentation. One direction is from black-box to white-box, augmenting functional test suites to satisfy structure coverage criteria. The other direction is from white-box to black-box, augmenting coverage test suite to satisfy functional requirements. A series of evaluation methods is proposed to verify the effectiveness of our augmentation approaches.
