Your Opinion about MBT

Dear all, Model-based testing is good for …. wait. We had this several times before. What is model-based testing about? Isn’t it just the combination of several techniques that have proven their efficiency already? In my opinion, we know already that modeling brings advantages because abstraction brings understanding, reusability, and a potential for automation. We […]

Product Line Testing in AK TOOP/MBT

Hi folks, the German working group for the testing of object-oriented programs / model-based testing (AK TOOP/MBT) had a meeting in November, during which we had two very interesting talks given by Danilo Beuche from pure-systems and Georgi Markov from Siemens (see the protocol in German for details). Both talks were about testing of product […]

Parallelization to speed up MBT

In contrast to classical manual testing, MBT proposes generating test cases automatically from formal models. But the number of generated test cases can become huge, especially if the specification is large, the test case generation algorithm too simple (e.g. based mainly on randomization), or some coverage criterion needs to be achieved. Consequently, MBT needs to […]

Articles about ROI of MBT

Dear all, Industry is adopting MBT … or is at least thinking about it. Thus, the return on investment (ROI) needs to be estimated, as described in a previous post. This post summarizes some of the articles about the benefits and costs of MBT that have been published recently. Interestingly, we found only little recent […]

The Behavior Driven Development approach provides a template for “specification” using certain keywords. Specification: Stack When a new stack is created Then it is empty When an element is added to the stack Then that element is at the top of the stack When a stack has N elements And element E is on […]

MBT at German Testing Day 2013

MBT is an indispensable topic at testing conferences. The reason for that is the awareness in the testing community that the main challenge in testing lies in creating and maintaining test cases and test suites in a systematic and intelligent way. The challenges regarding the automated test execution are more or less controllable. Besides many […]
