Everybody’s talking about models - and with good reason. Modelling tests (and/or software) can certainly help in the planning phases of a project. By reducing the complexity of a program or a test to the fundamentals, it is easier to get a project up and running and to ensure that design has been taken into account.

This talk looks at some of the benefits of using models in the planning phase for auto-mated GUI testing, the effects that modelling can (or should) have on the test process, and how to avoid the pitfalls associated with modelling.

Topics to be covered include the kinds of model available, how and when to start using them, what design aspects should be a part of the model and how formal a model needs to be.

Participants will gain insight into how they can use the documents available to them to introduce modelling to their test process in a meaningful way.
Achim Loerke started software development in 1982 after earning his diploma in electronics. He began working at BREDEX GmbH in 1987 and is now co-owner and director of the company. Beginning in 1995 he successfully utilized Java in several customer projects. He is also the principal architect of GUIdancer, a commercial Eclipse based tool for automated testing of Swing, SWT/RCP and HTML GUIs. Doing consulting and project management for customers gives him ample opportunities to apply his favorite subject of automated software quality assurance and automated testing. In addition he represents his company as an Eclipse Foundation member. Achim is a committer for the Eclipse ORMF technology project.

This session is part of the curated collection of short talks titled
"Testing for GUI, Embedded Systems, Systems Engineering and Distributed Products."
