Practical Experiences With Graph Based Software Testing

Alan Richardson gave a talk at StarEast 2003 based around his experiences with Graph Based Testing.

Tool Changes and New Tools

Some tools have new versions since the paper was written and I have stumbled across some new tools.

Simple Spreadsheet

In the paper I mention how simple it would be to construct a spreadsheet that you can use to create the graphs and use to build extra functionality with.

Well, I thought it would be unfair to let that statement stand without proof, so I have knocked up a small spreadsheet here. Feel free to download it and change as you require. Instructions on its use can be found in the zip (196kb).
