UML testing profile

To date, UML technology has focused primarily on the definition of system structure and behavior. With the approach towards system engineering according to model-driven architectures with automated code generation, the need for solid conformance testing, certification and branding is increased. However, UML provides limited means for describing test procedures within UML.

The OMG RFP on a UML Testing Profile solicits proposals for the following:

  • A UML testing profile based upon the UML metamodel or a MOF based meta-model for UML testing,
  • That enables the specification of tests for structural (static) and behavioral (dynamic) aspects of computational UML models, and
  • That is capable of inter-operation with existing test technologies for black box testing.

Submissions:

The final adopted submission of the U2TP Consortium. Comments are still very welcome (even that the deadline has passsed).

RFIs, RFPs:

This RFP was issued in July 2001. The U2TP Consortium was formed in November 2001 in order to develop a joint submission to this RFP.

The final submission was adopted by OMG in March 2003 and a finalization task force has been set up to address upcoming issues during the implementation process, see FTF.

Comments are still very welcome (even that the deadline has passsed).
