  • Blog Post: Spec Explorer 2010

    I am very excited to see the latest version of Spec Explorer (which is available even for Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 ) now available publicly for everyone in the world to leverage. It is available via the MSDN DevLabs page and the Spec Explorer team (the fact that there is a team dedicated to pushing...
  • Blog Post: Elements of MBT - Part 3 – Actions and Action Parameters

    In the last 2 posts we have looked at what we mean by a model of a system and defined what States and State Variables are. In this post we'll look into Actions and Action Parameters. We can define an Action as something that modifies or exercises the system. Thus "TurnIgnitionOn" (in the car model...
  • Blog Post: Elements of MBT - Part 2 – States and State Variables

    This is a continuation of the Elements of MBT series of posts which I started last time with Part 1 and covered what is meant by a model of a software system. In this post I shall be covering additional concepts which you will need to know to gain a better understanding of Model Based Testing. One...
  • Blog Post: Elements of MBT - Part 1 - What is a model?

    In this series of "Elements of MBT" posts, I will be covering some basic concepts used when trying to build models of software systems for use in Model Based Testing . The aim is to give an explanation of the various elements involved in defining a model of a software system and hopefully this should...
  • Blog Post: Model for Getting Drunk

    You know your team members are really catching onto this whole model-based way of thinking when they pull your leg over a few drinks in a bar and say (tongue in cheek): "So Nihit, the ' Action ' of having this drink will take me from a ' Sober ' state to a ' Drunk ' state, right?". Yes - exactly ...
  • Blog Post: Model Based Testing – The Yellow Brick Road

    The future was here – now it’s the past. I am, however, wiser about the ways-of-the-model-based world. Still taking baby steps really, but starting to stand up on my feet. The real-world turned out to be a whole different ball-game from what I had envisioned (and read and expected) but it has been a...
  • Blog Post: Pesticide Paradox

    Just posted an article on the Pesticide Paradox and how Model Based Testing can help alleviate that problem. Among others things Terrarium 1.2 seems to have been released. I have been wanting to create an organism and play with Terrarium for some time now (try and use Evolutionary Psychology tricks...
  • Blog Post: Pesticide Paradox

    In this article I will be attempting to explain one of the biggest (or what I feel is the biggest) drawback of traditional automation testing – the phenomenon of product code becoming more resistant to the test code and resulting in less bugs being found over time by the same test code. This was...
  • Blog Post: Model Based Testing - The future is here!

    Not sure if my article on Model Based Testing warranted an article or not (am not sure when exactly does a post qualify as an article - anyone know of any guidelines?), but I did put it up, partly because I wanted to try out the Article section of the .Text blogging application (on which the MSDN blogs...
  • Blog Post: Model Based Testing – An Introduction

    In this article I will attempt to give a brief overview of Model Based Testing (MBT) and provide links to help you dig in for more details. I have been increasingly getting more and more fascinated (obsessed?) with this paradigm, which I believe holds great promise for the future of the software testing...
