Service-oriented architecture (SOA) enables organizations to transform their existing IT infrastructure into a more flexible business process platform.. In this architecture, decoupled components that provide standard services can be composed to form individually configured and highly flexible applications. When building such applications it is important to(More)
The concepts of Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) have manifested themselves as the next evolutionary step for software development and the industry is fast in adopting SOA. The gained freedom of combining loosely coupled services is countered by resulting challenges for testing. While current research is mainly focusing on the investigation of advanced(More)
Choreography models describe the communication protocols between services. Testing of service choreographies is an important task for the quality assurance of service-based systems as used e.g. in the context of service-oriented architectures (SOA). The formal modeling of service choreographies enables a model-based integration testing (MBIT) approach. We(More)
Component integration plays a decisive role in service-oriented architectures (SOAs). The technical implementation must faithfully reflect business and enterprise integration requirements. This implies a good understanding of the globally observable message choreography but also of how messages are handled by the involved components and by the SOA(More)
Software development and testing of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems demands dedicated methods to tackle its special features. As manual testing is not able to systematically test ERP systems due to the involved complexity, an effective testing approach should be automated, also requiring that the appropriate test data has to be provided(More)
In this paper we present an approach of using model-driven technologies for testing of service component interactions. We report on an industrial experiment with a novel combination of existing UML standards, i.e., the UML Testing Profile (U2TP), in conjunction with proprietary domain specific languages (DSLs). Many model-based testing (MBT) approaches use(More)
Software development and testing of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems demands dedicated methods to tackle its special features. As manual testing is not able to systematically test ERP systems due to the involved complexity, an efficient testing approach should be automatic. Since the underlying business processes of enterprise systems are realized(More)
This paper presents a case study for the modeling and model-based testing (MBT) of enterprise service choreographies. Our proposed MBT approach uses proprietary models called Message Choreography Models (MCM) as test models. The case study illustrates how MCM-based service integration testing allows to formalize design decisions and enables full integration(More)
Service-based applications are based on modern architectures that require careful design of interfaces and protocols to allow smooth integration of service components. These design artifacts are not only useful for implementation, but could also be used for the derivation of integration tests. In order to be applied in these different activities of the(More)
