On object state testing

  title={On object state testing},
  author={David Chenho Kung and N. Suchak and Jerry Zeyu Gao and Pei Hsia and Yasufumi Toyoshima and Chris Chen},
The importance of object state testing is illustrated through a simple example. We show that certain errors in the implementation of object state behavior cannot be readily detected by conventional structural testing, functional testing, and state testing. We describe an object state test model and outline a reverse engineering method for extracting object state behaviors from C++ source code. The object state test model is a hierarchical, concurrent, communicating state machines. It resembles… CONTINUE READING
