Abstract:
Effective testing of modern software-intensive systems requires different forms of test automation. This can be implemented using different types of techniques, with different requirements for their application. Each technique has a different cost associated and can address different types of needs and provide its own benefits. In this paper, we describe our experiences in implementing test automation for a multiclient application with a social media backend. As a first option, traditional scripting tools were used to test different aspects of the system. In this case, the test cases were manually defined using an underlying scripting framework to provide a degree of automation for test execution and some abstraction for test description. As a second option, a model-based testing tool was used to generate test cases that could be executed by a test harness. In this case, a generic model of the behaviour was defined at a higher abstraction level and from this large numbers of test cases were automatically generated, which were then executed by a scripting framework. We describe the benefits, costs, and other properties we observed between the two different approaches in our case.
