Une approche dirigée par les modèles pour le développement de tests pour systèmes avioniques embarqués

Abstract : The development of tests for avionics systems involves a multiplicity of in-house test languages, with no standard emerging. Test solution providers have to accommodate the habits of different clients, while the exchange of tests between aircraft manufacturers and their equipment/system providers is hindered. We propose a model-driven approach to tackle these problems: test models would be developed and maintained in place of code, with model-to-code transformations towards target test languages. This thesis presents three contributions in this direction. The first one consists in the analysis of four proprietary test languages currently deployed. It allowed us to identify the domain-specific concepts, best practices, as well as pitfalls to avoid. The second contribution is the definition of a meta-model in EMF Ecore that integrates all identified concepts and their relations. The meta-model is the basis for building test model editors and code generation templates. Our third contribution is a demonstrator of how these technologies are used for test development. It includes customizable graphical and textual editors for test models, together with template-based transformations towards a test language executable on top of a real test platform.
