10.1 Overview

Increased usage of UML (Unified Modelling Language) notations made State Graphs as one of the important techniques in designing test cases. In UML notations, the behaviour of a component is described by a State Graph. As such, testers are expected to have basic knowledge of State Graph in order to evaluate object oriented systems at the stage of analysis and design.

This chapter is on using State Graph based Test Case Design. This technique is an advanced functional testing technique. Following sections provide step by step approach towards designing test cases from initial requirements to arrive at intermediary step that produces State Graph and then writing test cases from the State Graph.
