Generating Test Cases From UML Class And Sequence Diagrams

Damanpreet Kaur, Vikram Bali


Testing is very important part of software development life cycle. Almost 80% of softwares fail because of not testing properly. Testing is performed by different types of strategies. Generally testing is performed on code, but if the software can be tested in the earlier phases then most of the errors can be eliminated and can be stopped from propagating to next phase.To perform design based testing, we need a language that can deal with the design ably i.e. Unified Modelling Language (UML). The proposed work generates test cases on UML designs by exporting the UML design into easily programmatically readable format like XML format. The XML code can then be parsed in Java language and tested for design anomalies.

Keywords: UML, Testing, Test cases, XML format.
