Model Based Exploratory Testing?
Well, there I was once more sure I had a good idea and then in a newsletter this morning for the StarEast 2005:
Model Based Exploratory Testing , there in black and white in front of me in the special topics section. Now I am not able to go this year (mainly due to the fact I am already at a number of conferences in the first half of the year and I have client commitments) However this I would be tempted to go for.
I will post more on the subject once I see some of the talk abstract and who is giving it but it sure interested me.
I have started playing with this idea since StarWest last year and I am using a couple of tools with the idea of models for it, Watir and Eggplant being the two at the moment. I like the idea of machine based sessions for the exploration and using the models, rather as Harry Robinson does, to set many off down various paths to find interesting questions to ask.
I will post more as I find out more on the ideas and the results of the experiements but it is really cool to see someone else has tried this too.
