Department of CS and Mathematics, University of Pitesti TAIC PART 2007 Background Over the last 10-15 years we have developed specification based test generation techniques proven to determine system correctness under certain “design for test” conditions. State-based specifications – stream X-machine (SXM). Industrial evidence of the power and practicality of these techniques. Joint research with the Verification & Testing Research Group of the University of Sheffield , UK (Mike Holcombe).

Department of CS and Mathematics, University of Pitesti TAIC PART 2007 Class testing State based languages (e.g. UML statecharts) are widely used to model class behaviour. New challenge: extend our SXM based techniques to class testing . Gather empirical evidence about their effectiveness.

Department of CS and Mathematics, University of Pitesti TAIC PART 2007 Empirical evidence Empirical studies show that state-based testing is more effective than random testing but it is not likely to be sufficient unless the state diagram is straightforward. They advocate the use of functional methods to complement state-based testing. Our experiments (in which we evaluated our own SXM based techniques) also back these findings.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
