Software Testing is the one of the indispensible bustle to guarantee software quality. Exhaustive software testing is not probable at any point of time but optimized testing is practicable. Test case generation is very imperative in attaining the optimized testing i.e. with minimal number of test cases uncovering maximum number of errors. Software experts are following deferent methods for engendering test records; now this tabloid researcher explained generation of the test records centered on OBJECT BEHAVIORAL DEPENDENCE MODEL (OBDM).
