Automatic Model Generation Strategies for Model Transformation Testing [chapter]

Sagar Sen, Benoit Baudry, Jean-Marie Mottu
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose automatic model generation via constraint satisfaction using our tool Cartier for model transformation testing.  ...  These scores are based on analysis of 360 automatically generated test models for the representative transformation of UML class diagram models to RDBMS models.  ...  In Section 3 we describe our tool Cartier for automatic model generation, strategies for guiding model generation, and mutation analysis for model transformation testing.  ...

Metamodel-based Test Generation for Model Transformations: an Algorithm and a Tool

Erwan Brottier, Franck Fleurey, Jim Steel, Benoit Baudry, Yves Traon
2006 Proceedings - International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering  
In this paper, we focus on generating input test data (called test models) for model transformations. We present an algorithm to automatically build test models from a metamodel.  ...  A model transformation program is a specific program, in the sense it manipulates models as main parameters.  ...  A process for automatic test data generation In [5] , different activities have been identified for the test data generation in the context of MT testing.  ...

Testing Model Transformations: A Case for Test Generation from Input Domain Models [chapter]

Benoit Baudry
2013 Model-Driven Engineering for Distributed Real-Time Systems  
These fragments are the basis for the definition of coverage criteria and for automatic generation of test data. They also serve to drive the automatic generation of models for testing.  ...  A major challenge for test generation is that metamodels usually model an infinite set of possible input models for the transformation.  ...  Le Traon for the numerous fruitful discussions on software testing.  ...

Using Models of Partial Knowledge to Test Model Transformations [chapter]

Sagar Sen, Jean-Marie Mottu, Massimo Tisi, Jordi Cabot
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In Model-Driven Engineering, test inputs are models executed by model transformations.  ...  We argue that partial models are more readable and maintainable and can be automatically completed to full input models while considering language constraints.  ...  The scoping strategy can be modified depending on whether we would like to generate minimally sized or large test models.  ...

Discovering model transformation pre-conditions using automatically generated test models

Jean-Marie Mottu, Sagar Sen Simula, Juan Cadavid, Benoit Baudry
2015 2015 IEEE 26th International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE)  
The approach is based on systematically generating a finite number of test models using our tool, PRAMANAto first cover the input domain based on input domain partitioning.  ...  Specifying a model transformation is challenging as it must be able to give a meaningful output for any input model in a possibly infinite modeling domain.  ...  We briefly describe PRAMANA for automatic test model generation in Section III-A.  ...

The SOAMIG Project aims at a general migration process model with an emphasis on transformationbased conversion.  ...  The SOAMIG Process Model is divided into several phases and disciplines, which describe and organize general migration activities.  ...  Furthermore, a new data model is currently generated (semi-)automatically. Extracted code and data model were adapted to match the service interfaces.  ...

Automated and Scalable T-wise Test Case Generation Strategies for Software Product Lines

Gilles Perrouin, Sagar Sen, Jacques Klein, Benoit Baudry, Yves le Traon
2010 2010 Third International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation  
We propose a scalable toolset using Alloy to automatically generate test cases satisfying T -wise from SPL models. We define strategies to split T -wise combinations into solvable subsets.  ...  T -wise dramatically reduces the number of test products while ensuring reasonable SPL coverage. However, automatic generation of test cases satisfying T -wise using SAT solvers raises two issues.  ...  We addressed usability via model-driven engineering techniques to automatically transform generic feature diagrams into alloy models amenable to T-wise test generation in Alloy.  ...

2013 International Journal of Information and Electronics Engineering  
To achieve automation development we outline a formal approach to testing model transformation with automated test data generation. Index Terms-ATL, model driven development, model transformation.  ...  As more complex models need to be used, the importance of transformations between models grows.  ...  One drawback of completely automatic generation of test model is the complication for testers in reading and comprehending the model.  ...

Using strategies for assessment of programming exercises

Alex Gerdes, Johan T. Jeuring, Bastiaan J. Heeren
2010 Proceedings of the 41st ACM technical symposium on Computer science education - SIGCSE '10  
We propose to use strategies, in combination with program transformations, as a foundation for functional programming exercise assessment.  ...  Many programming exercise assessment tools are based on testing. A test-based assessment tool for programming exercises cannot ensure that a solution is correct.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The authors would like to thank Stefan Holdermans of Utrecht University for providing a set of suitable programming exercises, accompanied with a large amount of corrected student solutions  ...

Javier Troya, Sergio Segura, Antonio Ruiz-Cortés
2018 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper we give an insight into our approach to generically define metamorphic relations for model transformations, which can be automatically instantiated given any specific model transformation  ...  The correctness of the model transformation program is crucial for the proper generation of its output, so it should be tested.  ...  Thereby, we propose the automatic generation of metamorphic relations (MRs) for any model transformation.  ...
