Component based frameworks become more and more state-of-the art but without verifying the components and their interaction it is nearly impossible to build correct and robust systems. Testing of such systems requires a combination of unit- and integration tests, and must deal with verifying the contracts that enables the interaction of components. In this article we present CrashIt - a test framework for component-based testing. A main concept of CrashIt is the introduction of expandable contract-checkers that verify the communication between a client and a supplier component. These checkers are able to communicate with each other and with other modules of CrashIt. Thus, CrashIt is able to check the state of each component at every time.
