Software testing is important and critical in software development. At the same time, testing and creating test cases are time-consuming. But if you already have a UML Statemachine diagram, by using our free-plugin, it can generate test scenarios that you can use as a test case. Two plug-ins that you can add-on to Statemachine diagrams.
Let’s take out this sample statemachine diagram below:
Let’s install Plug-in!
- Access Plug-in page, hit [Download] button to download the statepath-x.x.x.jar file
- Drag & Drop the .jar file onto Astah
- Relaunch Astah, if you have [State Transition Path] view below the diagram, that means the plugin has been installed successfully.
Open Statemachine Diagram
Open a statemachine diagram or you can download the sample statemachine diagram from here. When you open it, the transition pathes between states are automatically extracted and appear in the view.
By clicking the line in the transition path view, the target transition line gets highlighted.
Export the transition path to MS Excel
You can export the transition path to Microsoft Excel to use it as a test case.
