Application of a LOTOS based Test Environment on AAL5 [chapter]

J. Burmeister, A. Rennoch
1996 Protocol Test Systems VIII  
The generation (creation) of the LOTOS test cases is not addressed here.  ...  As a prerequisite, a formalized, but simplified, protocol or service specification is expected, which will be also used for the analysis of the test execution.  ...  We would like to thank J. de Meer, technical leader of the TOPIC project, who invented and discussed with us the basic ideas of the distributed test system, and also B.  ...

Formal user-centred models [chapter]

Robert G. Clark, Ana M. D. Moreira
1997 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
As informal requirements are usually expressed in terms of the behaviour which the environment expects from a system, we propose that the construction of a formal and executable user-centred model should  ...  Rapid prototyping can be used to validate the user-centred model with respect to the requirements and the informal task of validating the objectoriented specification can be replaced by the formal task  ...  The user-centred model must therefore be composed in parallel with a Test process with the following structure (Quemada et al. 1995 The agent scenario in a test process is derived directly from a single  ...

Formal Test Automation: A Simple Experiment [chapter]

Axel Belinfante, Jan Feenstra, René G. de Vries, Jan Tretmans, Nicolae Goga, Loe Feijs, Sjouke Mauw, Lex Heerink
1999 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
The test scenarios are derived from multiple specification languages: LOTOS, Promela and SDL. A central theme of this study is the usability of batch-oriented and on-the-fly testing approaches.  ...  To facilitate the derivation from multiple formal description techniques and the different test execution approaches, an open, generic environment called TorX is introduced.  ...  Using observations during the test execution we can reduce the effort in deriving test information from the specification compared with batch derivation; see also [13] .  ...

(eds.), Testing of Communicating Systems © Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 1996 Part Four ODP Testing number of larger examples of ODP use.  ...  Requirements and specifications of an ODP system can be made from any of these viewpoints.  ...  So, an alternative approach is to first unify the viewpoint specifications and then derive tests from this unification using classic test case generation techniques.  ...

Protocol Design and Implementation Using Formal Methods

M. van Sinderen, L. F. Pires, C. A. Vissers
1992 Computer journal  
The paper focuses on design methods for synthesizing protocols by successive application of correctness-preserving LOTOS transformations.  ...  Testing a protocol against the service, according to the formal notion of test equivalence ([Abr87]), consists of defining test sequences derived from the service specification and applying them to the  ...  Conformance testing methods can be used for both validation and certification of protocol implementations. Conformance testing methods using LOTOS have been discussed in [B+90] .  ...

Generation of test purposes from Use Case Maps

Daniel Amyot, Luigi Logrippo, Michael Weiss
2005 Computer Networks  
It is therefore a natural candidate for use in the process of generating requirementsdirected test suites. We survey several approaches for deriving test purposes from UCM models.  ...  Therefore, they are inappropriate as the only source of information for the direct derivation of implementation-level test cases.  ...  The testing patterns were used to derive test purposes for all these applications. Table 1 presents several characteristics of these experiments, as an indication of their structure and size.  ...

A formal computational model for distributed systems and in particular for distributed multimedia applications derived frorn the Reference Model on Open Distributed Processing is defined and presented.  ...  The formal definition is based on the standardized formal description technique LOTOS introducing the LOTOS sub-language approach.  ...  However, they seem to be mostly ad-hoc solutions implemented in a particular environment This paper aims a more general approach: distributed multimedia applications are derived from standardized framework  ...

A Method for Applying LOTOS at an Early Design Stage and Its Application to the ISO Transport Protocol [chapter]

Guy Leduc
1994 The OSI95 Transport Service with Multimedia Support  
We propose a method applicable to the design of large and abstract LOTOS specifications.  ...  Having proved the feasibility of the method on this protocol, it was then used to specify (parts of) the new transport protocol TPX of OSI95.  ...  Ideally, these test suites should be derived from the formal specification of the standard. If the tests succeed, the implementation is claimed to conform to the standard.  ...

1994 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
In this paper, we propose an automatic analysis and test case derivation method for LOTOS expressions with data values.  ...  For this class, we give an algorithm for deriving a set of test cases (a test suite). The algorithm is carried out by using a decision procedure for integer linear programming problems.  ...  1" is a test case leading to a deadlock state for the P-LOTOS expression "t 1 " in Example 2.1. We have also implemented a tester to test a given IUT using the derived test suite.  ...
