Title: A Pattern-Based Approach for GUI Modeling and Testing
Issue Date: 2013
Abstract: User Interface (UI) patterns are used extensively in the design of today's software. UI patterns embody commonly recurring solutions that solve common GUI design problems, such as "login," "file-open," and "search." Yet, testing of GUIs for functional correctness has largely ignored UI patterns. This paper formalizes the notion of a Pattern-Based Graphical User Interface (GUI) Testing method (PBGT) for systematizing and automating the GUI testing process. The space of all possible interactions with a GUI is typically very large. PBGT presents a new methodology to sample the input space using " UI Test Patterns," that embody commonly recurring solutions to test GUIs. Our empirical studies show that the PBGT methodology is effective in revealing faults in fielded GUIs.
