Model Based Testing – The future is here!


Not sure if my article on Model Based Testing warranted an article or not (am not sure when exactly does a post qualify as an article – anyone know of any guidelines?), but I did put it up, partly because I wanted to try out the Article section of the .Text blogging application (on which the MSDN blogs are hosted). Does an article differ from a blog post in any concrete way (I know it doesn’t show up on the home page where the aggregation of all posts is shown)? Is it any more ‘permanent’ than a normal post? One advantage I see is that an article might be something more ‘updatable’ since many people do not consider editing a post blog entry as ‘correct’. So I could possibly go back and update an article with more relevant content, links etc. Is that correct?


I am super excited about model based testing and would love to hear from you about what you think is good/bad/ugly about this testing methodology. Will also hopefully post more about the pros and cons of MBT and share some tips and tricks that I discover on my way.

    hi nihit,

    your article on MBT is really good and thought provoking.

    I am also exploring using MBT for the applications that my team is testing. Keep me in loop if you have any trips and tricks etc.
