Combining test case generation for component and integration testing
When integrating dierent system components, the interaction between dierent features is often error prone. Typically errors occur on interruption, concurrency or disabling/ enabling between dierent features. Test case generation for integration testing struggles with two problems: the large state space and that these critical relationships are often not explicitly modeled. The approach presented in this paper is to use task models to describe the interaction between environment and system. This restricts the possible state space to a feasible size and enables the generation of task sequences, which cover the critical interaction scenarios. These task sequences are too abstract for testing the SystemUnder-Test (SUT), due to missing input- and expected outvior. To overcome the dierent abstraction levels, the tasks are mapped to component behavior models. Based on this mapping, task sequences can be enriched with additional information from the component models and thereby executed to te...
