Validation of feature-oriented product configurations using event sequence graphs
This study attempts to suggest an approach to systematically test potentially very large number of product variants in feature-oriented software. Feature-oriented software forms a popular concept to efficiently realize software reuse. Developing feature-oriented software is well accepted to accomplish software reuse in an efficient way. Developing product variants by exploiting software reuse requires verification of these variants by exploiting test reuse. However, the reuse of tests in the verification of variants is an underworked topic. In this study, we propose a model-based approach to top-down testing of feature-oriented software that does not have dependency or conflict between features. In the case study, event sequence graphs (ESGs) are used to model the software under consideration and then to generate test cases for positive and negative testing. The generated tests are executed via SahiPro web test automation tool, of which scripts are also automatically generated from ESGs.
