The testing environment FOREST (formal environment for systematic testing), which uses formal description techniques systematically, has been developed. FOREST generates the TTCN format test sequence from the specification described in SDL. Furthermore, FOREST generates the test data from the protocol data definition described in ASN.1. By using the FOREST system, the test specification and test execution and test report description are achieved systematically. Therefore, the cost of the testing phase of OSI upper layer software development is reduced. In particular, the facility for test sequence generation of FOREST realizes high coverage with a reasonable cost. The facility can efficiently check protocol specifications. The effectiveness of the approach is demonstrated by an application to the test design for the CCR protocol
