Software testing is the most common practice of software quality assurance. In this paper we will present a method of supporting the test data generations using the information from different kinds of UML diagrams. This method is based on the UML(VR) concept which is the extension of the standard UML with vertical relations which define in the formal way the relations between elements from different kinds of diagram. Using these vertical relations we are able to use UML as a base for test data generation for different kinds of tests (module-based, requirement-based, etc.). Such an approach gives us a unique possibility to choose the testing method driven by actual needs.
