Investigation of Methods for Testing Aspect Oriented Software
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Aspect-oriented programming is a comparatively new programming paradigm which intends to overcome some limitations that approaches such as procedural programming and object-oriented programming have. Traditional approaches are unable to properly capture some design decisions. Aspect-oriented programming introduces some new properties that we don’t find in the structural programming or object-oriented programming. New design patterns of aspect-oriented software introduce new fault types and new challenges for testing. Testing is an important part in the software development to produce quality software. Research on testing aspect-oriented software has been going on for several years but it still remains to invent testing approaches that cover all features of aspect-oriented software. This dissertation surveys test methods for aspect-oriented software and presents a comparison among the testing methods which reveals the strengths and weaknesses of current methods for testing of aspect-oriented software. This comparative overview of proposed test methods can be helpful for testers who intend to test aspect-oriented software. The conclusion presents the research contribution of this dissertation and proposes future work.
