Abstract—To improve the efficiency of software testing, a model-driven method is proposed to automatically generate test cases from UML design model. In it, PITCs (platform-independent test cases) are generated first from a UML design model. And then, according to the predefined rules, a process is implemented to transform PITCs into the corresponding PSTCs (platform-specific test cases). The experiment and comparison had showed that the method proposed in this paper was easier to be understood and implemented by users to generate test cases than the ones existed.

Index Terms—software testing, test case, PITC, PSTC, transformation rule
