Abstract

The Testing and Test Control Notation (TTCN-3) is a widely established test technology traditionally used in the telecommunication domain. In its new version, TTCN-3 has a wider scope and applicability. It can be applied not only for testing the conformance and interoperability of communication protocols but also for testing the functionality, interoperation and performance of software-based systems in general. Therefore, TTCN-3 is nowadays used in other domains such as automotive, railways, avionics, or security systems. This chapter introduces the concepts of the TTCN-3 language and provides examples of its practical use.
