Testing Concurrent Object-Oriented Systems with Spec Explorer

Colin Campbell, Wolfgang Grieskamp, Lev Nachmanson, Wolfram Schulte, Nikolai Tillmann, and Margus Veanes

Abstract

We describe a practical model-based testing tool developed at Microsoft Research called Spec Explorer. Spec Explorer enables modeling and automatic testing of concurrent object-oriented systems. These systems take inputs as well as provide outputs in form of spontaneous reactions, where inputs and outputs can be arbitrary data types, including objects. Spec Explorer is being used daily by several Microsoft product groups. The here presented techniques are used to test operating system components and Web service infrastructure.
