"Blue Collar Formal Methods" in Commercial Quality Assurance

There are many areas in commercial QA where Formal Methods (FM) could make useful contributions, yet there has not been a lot of focus by the FM community on commercial QA in a "real-world" setting. This paper focuses on these methods.

Test Architecture for Testing Distributed Systems

This paper suggests two test architectures for testing distributed, concurrent systems: a global tester that has total control over the distributed system under test (SUT) and, more interestingly, a distributed tester that comprises several concurrent tester components.

A State-Based Testing Approach Providing Data Flow Coverage in Object-Oriented Class Testing

The object-oriented class testing approach, proposed in this paper, combines functional with structural testing techniques. Based on state-based testing, test cases generated from the MACT (Method for Automatic Class Testing) tool can be used to execute functional testing.

An Automated Testing Environment to Support Operational Profiles of Software Intensive Systems

This paper focuses on the successes and issues associated with developing a statistical testing environment for an industrial software project. The paper will also describe how both statistical testing based on software models and traditional testing based on unit and other functional tests can be combined into an effective approach to testing large software intensive systems.

An Earned Value Tracking System for Self-Directed Software Teams

Several years ago, two process improvement initiatives combined to produce the ACSIS Earned Value Tracking System (EVTS): the development of SDWT's and the attempt to devise a more desciplined way to perform project planning and tracking. The two endeavors became mutually supportive. This presentation describes the ACSIS EVTS development, process, and results.

E-ffective Testing for E-commerce

Testing is crucial to e-commerce because e-commerce sites are both business critical and highly visible to their users; any failure can be immediately expensive in terms of lost revenue and even more expensive in the longer term if disaffected users seek alternative sites. Yet the time pressures in the e-commerce world militate against the thorough testing usually associated with business criticality, so a new approach is needed to enable testing to be integrated into the development process and to ensure that testing does not present a significant time burden.

The very familiarity of much of the technology means that tried and true mechanisms will either be suitable or can be modified to fit. Rapid Applications Development (RAD), in particular, suggests some promising approaches. Like most new ventures, though, e-commerce must find its own way and establish its own methods. In this paper we have suggested some testing principles that have stood the test of time and interm
