English abstract:
This paper addresses the problem of integration testing
of data-centric dynamic compositions in service-based systems.
These compositions define abstract services, which
are replaced by invocations to concrete candidate services
at runtime. Testing all possible runtime instances of a composition
is often unfeasible. We regard data dependencies
between services as potential points of failure, and introduce
the k-node data flow test coverage metric. Limiting
the level of desired coverage helps to significantly reduce
the search space of service combinations. We formulate the
problem of generating a minimum set of test cases as a combinatorial
optimization problem. Based on the formalization
we present a mapping of the problem to the data model
of FoCuS, a coverage analysis tool developed at IBM. Fo-
CuS can efficiently compute near-optimal solutions, which
we then use to automatically generate and execute test instances
of the composition. We evaluate our prototype implementation
using an illustrative scenario to show the endto-
end practicability of the approach.
