Model-based testing (MBT) integrating Sparx® Enterprise Architect with HP ALM/Quality Center

Kaiserslautern, 26 Feb 2013

For the successful delivery of e-business or complex ERP projects, the discipline and methodology of BPM is crucial for managing business process requirements. Such requirements are gathered from the business in a project's blueprinting phase by creating process models on a business activity level with business process analysis (BPA) tools. Because of the complexity of supporting business processes through and integrating them into applications, user acceptance, integration and non-regression testing are essential quality assurance (QA) concepts. The preparation of test plans is a time-consuming task which requires qualified and costly project team resources. BPM-X has developed a methodology based upon an adaptive software tool solution which re-uses business process models and thus links business knowledge captured in the blueprinting phase to continuous testing (hence MBT). Generating an appropriate test case coverage for business processes is crucial in gaining the required quality, lowering project costs, risks and negative business impacts of insufficiently tested applications.

Sparx® Enterprise Architect (EA) is a well-known modeling tool built upon a solid UML® 2.4.1 core with an intuitive user interface and an efficient, highly scalable repository with a proven record of delivering exceptional results. EA has more than 300,000 users worldwide. And by employing a detailed UML profile EA also supports BPMN™ 2.0 for business process modeling.

HP Quality Center (QC) is now a part of the HP ALM 11 application lifecycle software suite and offers software QA including requirements management, test management and business process testing for IT and application environments. HP QC is also offered by SAP® as SAP® Quality Center by HP with integration into SAP® Solution Manager.

We at BPM-X have created an integration of Sparx® EA with HP QC. This means that process models can be created with Sparx® EA using UML and/or BPMN modeling methodologies and then be imported into HP QC for further QA-related processing. Besides converting the process models into the HP QC import format the BPM-X software bridge offers the automated generation of test plans with test cases included.
