1 - TESTAR – from academic protoype towards an industry-ready tool for automated testing at the User Interface level

Testing applications with a Graphical User Interface (GUI) is an important, though challenging and time consuming task. The state of the art in the industry are still capture and replay tools, which may simplify the recording and execution of input sequences, but do not support the tester in finding fault-sensitive test cases and leads to a huge overhead on maintenance of the test cases when the GUI changes. While search-based test case generation strategies are well researched for various areas of testing, relatively little work has been done on applying these techniques to an entire GUI of an application. In this paper we present the tool TESTAR, an automated search-based approach to test applications at the GUI level whose objective is to solve part of the maintenance problem by automatically generating test cases based on a structure that is automatically derived from the GUI.

2 - Model-Based Testing in Early Software Development Phases

Despite the clear advantages of using test models, drawing them is not common practice in industry. This is not in the last place because, up to date, no easy to use tool existed that enables the creation of test models and implies less maintenance when requirements change.
In this paper we will discuss a tool that does do these things, yet is very simple, light-weight, easy to learn and does not require experience and or knowledge of difficult formal methods. Basically the tool helps a tester to draw a model, by providing a drawing canvas with a range of shapes and the possibility of connecting them. Secondly, the coverage algorithms underlying the tool, will extract all the combinations of the connections between the elements, and display a minimum set of test cases that can be used for functional or acceptance testing purposes.
