Flashback: History of the MBT Community

It all began with the enthusiasm of a small group of researchers in the field of software testing. They all had a passion for quality and background in software engineering. In several research articles they read about automatically generating tests from models. Amazed by this idea, all started to put their research efforts in model-based […]

Hi folks, this is the ultimate chance to join a team of enthusiastic testers! Help making this world a better place! Help create an open source test generator (under the Eclipse Public License). This isn’t as hard as it may sound! The tool is called PARtition TEst Generator (ParTeG) and handles UML state machines, UML […]

Measuring MBT’s ROI

For managers and engineers alike, quantifying the efficiency of MBT is very helpful when adopting MBT for the first time; estimating the required time for MBT tasks; comparing different approaches and tools for MBT. Hence the working group TOOP/MBT of the GI(-TAV) did some research on this, published as cover story in the German journal OBJEKTspektrum […]

Domain-Specific MBT

Hi folks, we are all aware of the basic idea of MBT: there is some kind of formal specification of the system or the environment and this specification is used by a program to automatically compute a set of test cases. There are several influencing factors and different approaches to the test generation technique like, […]

MBT for Product Lines

Hi folks, in MBT, models are the major source for test case generation. In the basic scenario, there is one model that describes a part of the environment or a part of the system behavior. Based on such a description, paths or sequences in the model are identified, which can be transformed into (executable) test […]

Book review: Experiences of Test Automation

Published in 1999, the book “Software Test Automation: Effective Use of Test Execution Tools” by Dorothy Graham and Mark Fewster probably still is one of the must-reads for anyone interested in test automation. Last year, a follow up was published by the same authors: “Experiences of Test Automation: Case Studies of Software Test Automation”, reviewed […]

The last couple of months, we have done a lot of research about test effort estimation and test exit criteria. We know from our industrial experience how important a good test effort estimation is for planning resources, schedules and risks. Unfortunately the effort is often estimated by rule of thumb. Budget and time overruns are […]

Become a Certified Model-Based Tester!

Hi all, today, the first pilot training on the Certified Model-Based Tester (CMBT) was finished at iSQI in Potsdam, Germany. Fundamental knowledge about models, modeling taxonomies, test generation, process integration, and much more was covered. Though this was the very first prototype of the training, the quality of slides, presentations, and discussions was already very […]
