Abstract:
Current and future trends for software include increasingly complex
requirements on interaction between systems. As a result, the
difficulty of system testing increases. Model based testing is a test
technique where test cases are generated from a model of the system.
In this study we explore model-based testing on the system-level,
starting from early development. We apply model-based testing to a
sub-system of a message gateway product in order to improve early
fault detection. The results are compared to another sub-system that
is tested with hand-crafted test cases.
Based on our experiences, we present a set of challenges and
recommendations for system-level, model-based testing. Early results
indicate that model-based testing, starting from early development,
significantly increases the number of faults detected during system
testing.

Jonas Boberg
