The authors propose, in this paper, a hybrid regression testing technique and associated tool for object-oriented software. The technique combines, in fact, the analysis of UML models to a simple static analysis of the source code of the modified program. The basic models they use are use cases model and corresponding UML state-chart and collaboration diagrams. The goal of the static analysis of the source code is to identify changes that are not visible in design models. The developed tool identifies the modified (and/or impacted by modifications) use cases and selects the appropriate test cases from an existing test suite.
