10.12. Summary

State graph is an advanced functional testing technique. Concepts of state graph help us in building state graph model from specifications in order to perform model based testing. It is essential a state graph shall be good. In order to ensure that the state graph we arrived at is good – it shall be verified to check whether state graph that is modelled from specifications is correct, complete and consistent enough for implementation of testing. State graph based testing do not support exhaustive testing. Also, it is very difficult to design state graph for complex and larger systems. As such state graphs are not good candidates for designing exhaustive testing and also, shall be considered for designing test cases of complex and larger systems.
