PROWESS - Property-based testing of Web services

The challenge addressed in PROWESS is to reduce time spent on testing, whilst increasing software quality, in order to quickly launch new, or enhancements of existing, web services and internet applications. This project aims to provide the European software industry with efficient and effective testing tools and techniques for this purpose.

We are leading the work package on Property based testing of non-functional requirements, and contributes with development of realistic fault models and a prototype fault injection tool, which will support the concept of property-based testing. The project is funded by the European FP7 programme.
