A new model based approach for automated generation of test cases in object oriented systems has been presented. The test cases are derived by analyzing the dynamic behavior of the objects due to internal and external stimuli. The scope of the paper has been limited to the object diagrams taken from the Unified Modeling Language model of the system. Genetic Algorithm's tree crossover has been proposed to bring out all possible test cases of a given object diagram. Illustrative case study has been presented to establish the effectiveness of the authors' methodology coupled with mutation analysis.
