Advanced test modelling and execution based on the international standardized techniques TTCN-3 and UTP
In systems and service engineering testing is an important part to get confidence in quality and trust in security issues. Standardized testing techniques support the unique definition of abstract test models, configurations and behavior scenarios that can be executed automatically. This contribution presents the state of the art and future directions of two international standards for testing: the Testing and Test Control Notation (TTCN-3) from the European Telecommunication Standardization Institute (ETSI), and the UML testing profile (UTP) from the Open Management Group (OMG). Special emphasize is given to the translation from UTP to TTCN-3 test models, automated test execution using standard-compliant tool support and related examples from European projects.
