Telling TestStories - A Tool-Based Methodology for Model-Driven System Testing of Service-Centric Systems

The Faculty of Informatics is pleased to announce a seminar given by Michael Felderer

DATE: Monday, September 12th, 2011
PLACE: USI Università della Svizzera italiana, room A32, Red building (Via G. Buffi 13)
TIME: 14.30

In this talk a novel model-driven system testing methodology for service-centric systems called Telling TestStories is presented. Telling TestStories is based on separated requirements, system, and test models validated by consistency, completeness, and coverage checks. Additionally, the approach guarantees full traceability between the requirements model, the system model, the test model, and the executable services of the system which is crucial for efficient test evaluation and test evolution management. As test models integrate test data in tabular form, the Telling TestStories approach is model-driven and tabular supporting test design by domain experts. The methodology comes with a tool implementation and is applied in two case studies from the telecommunication and the home networking domain. Besides functional requirements testing, the methodology is employed on security requirements testing and regression testing based on evolving models.

Michael Felderer is a research assistant at the Institute of Computer Science at the University of Innsbruck.
