Practical Model-Based Testing: A Tools Approach by Mark Utting

By Mark Utting

This publication offers a pragmatic advent to model-based trying out, displaying the right way to write versions for trying out reasons and the way to take advantage of model-based trying out instruments to generate attempt suites. it really is aimed toward testers and software program builders who desire to use model-based trying out, instead of at tool-developers or academics.The booklet makes a speciality of the mainstream perform of useful black-box trying out and covers various kinds of versions, specifically transition-based versions (UML country machines) and pre/post types (UML/OCL requisites and B notation). the stairs of employing model-based checking out are validated on examples and case stories from a number of software program domain names, together with embedded software program and data platforms. From this publication you are going to learn:* the elemental rules and terminology of model-based checking out* How model-based checking out differs from different checking out tactics* How model-based trying out suits into general software program lifecycles comparable to agile equipment and the Unified method* the advantages and boundaries of model-based checking out, its rate effectiveness and the way it will possibly decrease time-to-market* A step by step approach for utilising model-based trying out* the way to write reliable versions for model-based trying out* how one can use numerous attempt choice standards to regulate the assessments which are generated out of your versions* How model-based checking out can hook up with current automatic try execution systems resembling Mercury attempt Director, Java JUnit, and proprietary try execution environments * provides the fundamental ideas and terminology of model-based checking out* indicates how model-based checking out suits into the software program lifecycle, its cost-effectiveness, and the way it may well decrease time to marketplace* bargains advice on tips on how to use other forms of modeling suggestions, priceless try new release ideas, the way to follow model-based trying out strategies to genuine functions utilizing case stories

Note that some transitions have labels in the form Event[Guard]/Action, which means that the transition is triggered by Event but is taken only if Guard evaluates to true. When the transition is taken, then Action (which is written in OCL in this example) can specify how the instance variables of the class are modified. 4 UML state machine for the Smartcard class. empty action that does not change any variables. The transitions within the “Holder not identified” state are self-transitions that can change state variables and produce outputs, but do not move to a different state.

The test execution is also done manually. For each test case, the manual tester follows the steps of that test case, interacts directly with the SUT, compares the SUT output with the expected output, and records the test verdict. In embedded applications, where it is often not possible to interact directly with the SUT (it may be just a black box with some wires coming out), a test execution environment may be used to allow the tester to enter 21 22 chapter 2 The Pain and the Gain inputs and observe outputs.

In fact, the cost of repeating the manual test execution is so high that, to keep testing costs within budget, it is often necessary to cut corners by reducing the number of tests that are executed after each evolution of the code. This can result in software being delivered with incomplete testing, which introduces a significant risk regarding product maturity, stability, and robustness. The next few testing processes propose various ways of automating the test execution, to reduce this cost and permit more comprehensive testing.
