Bad = {f ire f ire, f ire f ire data, f ire data send f ire}) or as a symbolic representation (e.g., Bad is all sequences in regular expression f ire data (f ire)∗ send whose lengths are between 10 and 30).
Testing Systems of Concurrent Black-boxes--an Automata-Theoretic and Decompositional Approach
Case 2 The detected bad behaviors are due to the concurrency nature of these black-boxes: a f ire was issued before the pause is sent to Timer, which eventually leads to another send.
Testing Systems of Concurrent Black-boxes--an Automata-Theoretic and Decompositional Approach
For instance, a global bad behavior could be like the following: f ire data send msg f ire data send cerr f ire data pause send.
Testing Systems of Concurrent Black-boxes--an Automata-Theoretic and Decompositional Approach
Case 4 Now we want to test that: after an error occurs in Sensor (i.e., a serr is issued), there will be at most one more f ire issued before a resume occurs.
Testing Systems of Concurrent Black-boxes--an Automata-Theoretic and Decompositional Approach
The corresponding bad behaviors are encoded by Σ ∗ serr(Σ − {r})∗ f (Σ − {r})∗f (Σ − {r})∗ rΣ ∗ , where f stands for f ire.
