»Calculating BPEL Test Coverage through Instrumentation«

Assessing the quality of tests for BPEL processes is a difficult task in projects following SOA principles. Since insuf�cient testing can lead to unforeseen defects that can be extremely costly in complex and mission critical environments, this problem needs to be addressed. By using formally de�ned test metrics that can be evaluated automatically by using an extension to the BPELUnit testing framework, testers are able to assess whether their white box tests cover all important areas of a BPEL process. This leads to better tests and thus to better BPEL processes because testers can improve their test cases by knowing which important areas of the BPEL process have not been tested yet.
