Tutorial D1: Requirements Testing: Use Cases to Test Cases
There have been increasing calls for software testing to break out of the "we are here to break the code" mind-set to also encompass the testing of other artifacts such as requirements, designs, configurations and architectures. Of these, the testing of requirements has proven to be a difficult challenge given the need to focus more intensively on validation instead of verification. This workshop revisits requirements testing and explores the adaptation of use case methods for capturing requirements as the basis for providing a sound base for test case generation. It focuses both on aligning the structural components of use cases with test cases for testing efficiencies as well as the derivational difficulties inherent in trying to naturally derive test cases from use cases.
