Abstract

The systematic test is an inevitable part of the verification and validation process for software. The most important prerequisite for a thorough software test is the design of relevant test case, since they determine the kind and scope. Hence the quality of the test the classification-tree method and the graphical editor CTE support the systematic design of black box test cases. The classification-tree method is an approach to partition testing which uses a descriptive tree-like notation and which is especially suited for automation.
