TESTING IN SOFTWARE PRODUCT LINES - A Model based Approach

Pedro Reales Mateo, Macario Polo, Danilo Caivano

Abstract

This article describes a model-driven approach for test case generation in software product lines. It defines a set of metamodels and models, a 5-step process and a tool called Pralíntool that automates the process execution and supports product line engineers in using the approach.
