This article is a first attempt towards a comprehensive, systematic methodology for class interface testing in the context of client/server relationships. The proposed approach builds on and combines existing techniques. It first consists in selecting a subset of the method sequences defined for the class testing of the client class, based on an analysis of the interactions between the client and the server methods. Coupling information is then used to determine the conditions, i.e., values for parameters and data members, under which the selected client method sequences are to be executed so as to exercise the interaction. The approach is illustrated by means of an abstract example and its cost-effectiveness is evaluated through a case study.
