UML For Test Development Training Course - 2 Days

This UML training course is aimed at system and sub-system test developers who want understand how to create test scripts from UML based system documentation. The course provides an in-depth technical study of system models based on the Unified Modelling Language (UML) v2.5. The techniques learned are applicable to the testing of systems using conventional client-server architectures, those to be deployed as web applications, and real-time or embedded systems. Each technique is taught to the level required for competence on a real project and understanding is tested and improved with exercises. Students spend a significant part of the training course applying the techniques to a real-world project example.

Delegates will learn:
  • The basics and the necessary detail of the Unified Modelling Language
  • The basics and necessary detail of Object Orientation
  • How to develop a test strategy for user acceptance, system level, component level, integration and regression testing
  • To understand a use case diagram and use case description
  • How to develop a system level test script from a use case
  • To understand a detailed model of the system's data using classes and their relationships
  • How to develop scripts to test the systems stored data
  • To understand a sequence diagram which details the functionality of a use case
  • How to add detail to a test script from a sequence diagram
  • To understand state machine diagrams and the way in which they define the dynamics of a system
  • How to develop scripts that test the state dependent behaviour of the system
Suitable for:
Suitable for

System Analysts, Test Developers, Test Managers and System Developers with at least 2 years experience. This course is not suitable for those seeking certification as a step towards a qualification. See the Certification Policy for a detailed discussion.
