Modbat: A model-based tester
Modbat is a model-based testing tool that is based on annotated (extended) finite-state machines. Modbat is specialized to testing the application programming interface (API) of software. The model used by Modbat is compatible with Java bytecode. The user defines and compiles a model, which is then explored by Modbat and executed against the system under test. Failed test runs are reported as an error trace.
- Easy-to-learn modeling language with graphical view of model.
- Efficient test generation and execution.
- Offline test case generation and other advanced features.
How it works
Modbat is based on Scala and compatible with any Java-based software. The model has the structure of a non-deterministic finite-state machine. From all possible transitions, one is chosen to be tested; annotations of the transition specify which code to execute.
Extended finite-state machine
Modbat is currently under active development. The first version is available on a trial basis; it can be obtained without registration. Modbat version 1.0.2 is free to use, but the software may not be modified, reverse engineered, or released to third parties.
