Interface-Driven Model-Based Generation of Java Test Drivers



Mark Blackburn, Robert Busser, Aaron Nauman, Ramaswamy Chandramouli


This paper extends prior work in model-based verification and describes interface-driven analysis that combines with a requirement model to support automated generation of Java test scripts. It describes concepts of models and test driver mappings using examples for testing security functionality of an Oracle database using Java and Structured Query Language(SQL) test drivers. Although the modeling and testing are focused on database security capabilities, the described concepts can be applied to develop test drivers for many other products.
