Abstract

New challenges in Software Testing arise from evaluating Pervasive Computing Systems, which are a special type of component-based software. Transparent interconnection of components becomes highly important when users need to switch between operative contexts. Dynamic assembly requires evaluating components to ensure they conform to the updated system’s requirements, and components semantical information could be analysed with a proper Ontology. Thus, our focus is set on Semantic Interoperability. We present an abstract model of an infrastructure integrated with an evaluation process, by applying testing strategies based on contextual information of components and user tasks. A typical case study is used to present both static and dynamic aspects of participating components. To improve this description we show the components’ dynamic interaction by a temporal model from which testing strategies could be more precisely defined and applied.
