A DETECTION METHOD OF FEATURE INTERACTIONS FOR TELECOMMUNICATION SERVICES USING NEW EXECUTION MODEL

Sachiko Kawada, Masayuki Shimokura, Tadashi Ohta

Abstract

A service, which behaves normally, behaves differently when initiated with another service. This undesirable behavior is called a feature interaction. In investigating the international benchmark for detecting interactions in telecommunication services, it was found that many interactions that do not actually occur (called: “seeming interactions” in this paper) were mis-detected. The reason for mis-detection of seeming interactions is that interactions were detected using a state transition model which does not properly represent the process flow in a real system. Since seeming interactions cause an increase in time taken for solving interactions, avoiding mis-detection is an important issue. In this paper, a problem in implementing a detection system without mis-detecting seeming interactions is clarified and its solution is proposed. In addition, a new interaction detection method, which adopts the proposed solution and is based on a specification execution model which properly reflects the process flow in a real system, is proposed.
