Abstract: Model Driven Engineering (MDE) aims to expedite the software development process by providing support for transforming models to running systems. Many modeling tools provide forward engineering features, which automatically translate a model into a skeletal program that developers must complete. Inconsistencies between a design model and its implementation, however, can arise, particularly when a final implementation is developed dependently on the code from which it was generated. Manually checking that an implementation conforms to its model is a daunting task. Thus, an MDE tool that developers can use to check that implementations conform to their models can significantly improve a developer's productivity. This paper presents a model-based approach for testing whether or not an implementation satisfies the constraints imposed by its design model. Our model-based testing approach aims to efficiently reduce the test input space while supporting branch coverage criteria. To evaluate the approach's ability to uncover inconsistencies, we developed a prototypical tool and applied it to the Eclipse UML2 projects. We were able to uncover inconsistencies between the models and their implementations using the tool.
