Modeling and testing of component-based systems

Abstract : In spite of several decades of research, assuring the quality of software systems still represents a major and serious problem nowadays for the industry with respect to both results and costs. This thesis comes within the scope of a proposal centered on a generic unified framework for both complex software systems modeling and testing. The contribution of this paper is then twofold: first, it defines a unified framework for modelling generic components, as well as a formalization of integration rules to combine their behaviour. This is based on a coalgebraic definition of components, which is a categorical representation allowing the unification of a large family of formalisms for specifying state-based systems. Second, it studies compositional conformance testing i.e. checking whether an implementation made from correct interacting components combined with integration operators conforms to its specification
