The goal of this paper is to examine the testing of object-oriented systems and to compare and contrast it with the testing of conventional programming language systems, with emphasis on fault-based testing. Conventional system testing, object-oriented system testing, and the application of conventional testing methods to object-oriented software will be examined, followed by a look at the differences between testing of conventional (procedural) software and the testing of object-oriented software. An examination of software faults (defects) will follow, with emphasis on developing a preliminary taxonomy of faults specific to object-oriented systems. Test strategy adequacy will be briefly presented. As a result of these examinations, a set of candidate testing methods for object-oriented programming systems will be identified.
