Software testing is done manually from the day the software development started. But manual testing has shortcoming that many times became the reason of software failure. So, automated testing comes into picture and Unified Modeling Language (UML) a tool helps to automate the testing process. Two different UML diagrams, Activity and Sequence used to automate the testing process. These diagrams are converted into graphs using algorithms and finally combined to form System graph. This system graph is then traverse to generate the test case and as both diagram consider the whole system for analysis and consider all the cases. The final test cases generated are optimized also.

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the 4th International Workshop on Structured Object-Oriented Formal Language and Method, SOFL+MSVL 2014, held in Luxembourg, Luxembourg, in November 2014. The 12 papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 20 submissions. They are organized in topical sections on testing and inspection; model checking and animation; education and verification; and semantics and analysis.
However, in literature, focus is mostly given on UML model based automatic
generation of test cases, rather than optimization of test cases. Researchers and
practitioners have worked on various optimization approaches from decades.

Data Democracy: At the Nexus of Artificial Intelligence, Software Development, and Knowledge Engineering provides a manifesto to data democracy. After reading the chapters of this book, you are informed and suitably warned! You are already part of the data republic, and you (and all of us) need to ensure that our data fall in the right hands. Everything you click, buy, swipe, try, sell, drive, or fly is a data point. But who owns the data? At this point, not you! You do not even have access to most of it. The next best empire of our planet is one who owns and controls the world’s best dataset. If you consume or create data, if you are a citizen of the data republic (willingly or grudgingly), and if you are interested in making a decision or finding the truth through data-driven analysis, this book is for you. A group of experts, academics, data science researchers, and industry practitioners gathered to write this manifesto about data democracy. The future of the data republic, life within a data democracy, and our digital freedoms An in-depth analysis of open science, open data, open source software, and their future challenges A comprehensive review of data democracy's implications within domains such as: healthcare, space exploration, earth sciences, business, and psychology The democratization of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and data issues such as: Bias, imbalance, context, and knowledge extraction A systematic review of AI methods applied to software engineering problems

This book covers both theory and applications in the automation of software testing tools and techniques for various types of software (e.g. object-oriented, aspect-oriented, and web-based software). When software fails, it is most often due to lack of proper and thorough testing, an aspect that is even more acute for object-oriented, aspect-oriented, and web-based software. Further, since it is more difficult to test distributed and service-oriented architecture-based applications, there is a pressing need to discuss the latest developments in automated software testing. This book discusses the most relevant issues, models, tools, challenges, and applications in automated software testing. Further, it brings together academic researchers, scientists, and engineers from a wide range of industrial application areas, who present their latest findings and identify future challenges in this fledging research area.

Twenty-five papers presented at the October 1999 conference are grouped into sessions having the broad topics of software synthesis, requirements elicitation, reuse, test synthesis, analysis, verification, transformation, architecture, and automated testing. Among the topics are data mining library reuse patterns in user-selected applications, industrial applications of software synthesis via category theory, automated translation of UML models of architectures for verification and simulation using SPIN, verification of picture generated code, evolving object-oriented designs with refactorings, automatically detecting mismatches during component-based and model-based development, and an overview of Lutess: a specification- based tool for testing synchronous software. There are also 25 short papers that represent novel work not yet fully mature. No subject index. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR.

Abstract: With the rapid increase in complexity in the building industry, project managers are facing more and more complex decision environments and problems. Therefore, it would be beneficial to aid project managers in making sound decisions regarding the intelligent knowledgeable selection of the optimal construction methodology for concrete skeletons while making use of Building Information Modelling (BIM). BIM models' usage fused with modelling, and simulation tools allow efficiently prototyping a building and examining its construction activities before breaking the ground. For this purpose, an intelligent framework with advanced computational tools and algorithms is designed and created to achieve a higher degree of design-construction integration and spatial integration of individual building elements in order to achieve an optimized sequencing of building elements (in terms of time and resource utilization). This research presents a model framework that extracts building elements, along with their topological relationships and geometrical properties, from an existing fully designed Building Information Model (BIM Model) to be mapped into a directed acyclic Elemental Graph Data Model (EGDM). The framework incorporates BIM-based search algorithms for automatic deduction of geometrical data and topological relationships for each building element type. The EGDM can undergo a broad range of measures that aids in discovering more information about the construction of the project under study. By electing elemental construction method(s) available in the construction site for each element category, Elemental Construction Method Graph(s) (ECMG) are generated, and Entra-elemental relationships are added in order to mimic any practical constraints in real life. Using graph search algorithms, Depth First Search (DFS) and topological sortings, and an innovative Genetic Algorithm (GA) inspired by Tabu Search (TS), possible construction sequences are generated. The sequences were, then, simulated, hence, recommending the Optimized Elemental Construction Method, Schedule & Resources, and, hence, generating 4D BIM models. An application was developed to implement the framework and test its robustness. It was implemented with the aid of AutoDesk Revit APIs in a C# platform. Ultimately, the model was tested, verified and validated. Testing and verification were performed with the aid of a set of automatically generated test cases which were built by means of an add-in just developed for testing purposes. Thereafter, the model was validated with the aid of a set of real case studies. Results revealed an improvement in project's total construction duration, a significant saving in the time of generation of the 4-D construction schedule, in addition to human interference elimination. Moreover, this shows how promising the area of planning through the generation of construction sequences is. Keywords: Building Information Modelling (BIM), Elemental Graph Data Model (EGDM), Geometric and topological data models, Graph theory, Elemental Construction Method Graph (ECMG), Depth-first Search, Topological Sorting, Construction Sequence, Genetic Optimization, Tabu Search, and Automated Construction Scheduling.
