Testing Coupling Relationships in Object-Oriented Programs

Free registration required

Executive Summary

As the authors move to developing object-oriented programs, the complexity traditionally found in functions and procedures is moving to the connections among components. Different faults occur when components are integrated to form higher level structures that aggregate behavior and state. Consequently, they need to place more effort on testing the connections among components. Although object-oriented technologies provide abstraction mechanisms for building components that can then be integrated to form applications, it also adds new compositional relations that can contain faults. This paper describes techniques for analyzing and testing the polymorphic relationships that occur in object-oriented software.
