Regression testing is an expensive and important process of validating modification introduced in a system during software maintenance.A number of regression testing techniquesnamely Retest all, Regression test selection, Test case reduction and Test case prioritization have been proposed to improvethe effectiveness of regression testing.The important concern in regression testing is its cost and execution time. The most familiar technique in regression testing is Test case prioritization that is used to deal with this problem.Test case prioritization techniques order the execution of test cases in an organized manner so as to achieve an objective function with greater efficiency. Many prioritization techniques have been proposed in the literature.This paper attempts to review various multi-objective based test case prioritization techniques.
