AutoQUEST - Automated Quality Engineering of Event-driven Software

Abstract

In this paper, we present AutoQUEST, a testing platform for Event-Driven Software (EDS) that decouples the implementation of testing techniques from the concrete platform they should be applied to. AutoQUEST provides the means to define testing techniques against an abstract Application Programming Interface (API) and provides plugins to port the testing techniques to distinct platforms. The requirements on plug-in implementations for AutoQUEST are kept low to keep the porting effort low. We implemented several testing techniques on top of AutoQUEST and provide five plugins for concrete software platforms, which demonstrates the capabililities of our approach.
