Design Driven Testing for ArcGIS Server Development

Written by 
The attached presentation, from the recent ESRI Developer Summit, presents the design of the hotel mapping application, and discusses bugs that were detected and fixed before product release following the DDT approach.


ICONIX has collaborated with Sparx Systems to produce a uniquely powerful set of capabilities for driving testing from Enterprise Architect UML and SysML models.    By combining the functionality of Sparx's structured scenario editor and that of the Agile/ICONIX add-in, it's now possible to automatically generate test cases at multiple levels of abstraction.   These include two levels of developer testing, including automatic generation of unit test code for JUnit, NUnit and FlexUnit, and two levels of acceptance/QA testing, including generation of test cases for Requirements, and scenario-based testing using a "use case thread expander" which automatically generates test scripts covering all permutations of sunny-day/rainy-day scenarios.

We've published our approach in a book called Design Driven Testing (DDT), which I co-authored with Matt Stephens, and we proved our concepts on a real, commercially available product, an interactive mapping system built with ESRI's ArcGIS Server geospatial engine, and in commercial use on a travel website, VResorts.com.

ICONIX (Chief Executive Officer)
 
Doug Rosenberg founded ICONIX in his living room in 1984 and began training companies in object-oriented analysis and design around 1990. ICONIX specializes in JumpStart training for UML and SysML, and offers both onsite and open-enrollment courses.
 
Doug developed a Unified Booch/Rumbaugh/Jacobson approach to modeling in 1993, several years before the advent of UML, and began writing books around 1995. Design Driven Testing is his 6th book on software engineering. He’s also authored numerous multimedia tutorials (including Enterprise Architect for Power Users) and several eBooks, including Embedded Systems Development with SysML.
 
Doug has spent the last few years doing "deep dive" consulting into cutting-edge technology including cross-platform mobile app development, REST APIs, and NoSQL databases, and gaining first-hand experience on some "hardcore agile" projects of varying sizes.  He's also been working with dozens of graduate students at the University of Southern California Center for Systems and Software Engineering (USC CSSE), managing Directed Research projects and developing/piloting the Resilient Agile process.
