Abstract

Test models in model-based testing are typically represented as state machines in terms of states and transitions. These states and transitions also are typically the focus of the test modeling approaches. Yet these test models are basically software components for the test automation domain, and need to be considered from test automation and software engineering viewpoints. In this paper, we describe a modeling approach that takes better into account these viewpoints. Taking these viewpoints into account, we propose a modularization approach for modeling in model-based testing and present a tool for supporting this modularization approach.
