An approach to software reliability modeling based on code coverage is used to derive the Infinite Failure software reliability Model Based on Code Coverage - IFMBC. Our aim was to verify the soundness of the approach under different assumptions. The IFMBC was assessed with test data from a real application, making use of the following structural testing criteria: all-nodes, all-edges, and potential-uses - a data-flow based family of criteria. The IFMBC was shown to be as good as the Geometric Model - GEO, found to be the best traditional time-based model that fits the data. Results from the analysis also show that the IFMBC is as good as the BMBC - Binomial software reliability Model Based on Coverage - a model previously derived using the code coverage approach, indicating it to be effective under different modeling assumptions.
