AutoTest is a fully automatic testing tool. Our methodology is based on Design by Contract (TM). Contracts are a valuable source of information regarding the intended semantics of the software. The information that contracts (preconditions, postconditions, class invariants, loop variants and invariants, and check instructions) provide can be used to check whether the software fulfills its intended purpose. By checking that the software respects its contracts, we can ascertain its validity. Therefore, contracts provide the basis for automation of the testing process.
AutoTest allows the user to generate, compile and run tests on the push of a button and seamlessly integrates with existing manual unit tests. It is able to select manual tests that are relevant given a certain test scope.
