Abstract

The early test can greatly reduce the cost of error correction for system development. It is still important in SOA based service system. However, the existing methods of test case generation for SOA have limitations which are restricted to only web service using XML. Therefore, this paper proposes a method of test case generation using BPMN-based model reduction for service system. For minimizing test effort, an existing BPM is transformed into S-BPM which is composed of basic elements of workflow. The process of test case generation starts with making S-BPM concerning the target service system, and transforms the target service system into directed graph. And then, we generate several service scenarios applying scenario searching algorithm and extract message moving information. Applying this method, we can obtain effective test cases which are even unlimited to web service. This result is the generation of test case which is reflected in the business-driven property of SOA.
