This presentation explains how test models can drive development and defeat the testing backblob, instead of loosely stated behavior (BDD) or acceptance criteria (ATDD).
The meeting will be held at the University of Illinois at Chicago in rooms 1043-1047 of the Engineering Research Facility, 842 W. Taylor Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607.
This talk presents multi-dimensional testing, a model-based strategy to produce test suites that interleave non-trivial variation in system usage and load. Compared with equivalent but separate usage and load test suites, this achieves testing that is highly realistic and more likely to reveal catastrophic failure modes. A project in which this approach was evolved and used is described. An innovative model of system failure, the “dragon king” provides a useful model of failure modes in large reactive systems, providing insight into recent high profile failures of complex distributed systems. I argue that multi-dimensional testing is necessary to reveal dragon-kings.

In 2002, the US Department of Justice and EU regulators ordered Microsoft to publish documentation sufficient to allow third parties to interoperate with hundreds of its server and client programs. This presentation highlights the novel requirements engineering and model-based testing devised to validate the resulting 60,000 pages of API documentation.
This process resulted in over 50,000 defect corrections. Lessons learned from this project can improve quality, reduce costs, and facilitate interoperability of any complex system.
