Extracting State Models for Black-Box Software Components

By: Rajiv Ranjan Suman, Rajib Mall, Srihari Sukumaran, Manoranjan Satpathy

Abstract

Components are increasingly being used to build embedded systems, distributed control applications, and several types of real-time systems. These applications mandate ensuring high degrees of reliability, safety, and security. In this light, state model-based testing assumes importance. Besides its use in testing, the extracted state model of a component has several other applications as well. These include understanding the state-based behavior of a component and re-engineering of a component to meet new requirements or constraints.
