The extended finite state machine is a powerful model that can capture almost all the aspects of a system. However, testing from an EFSM is yet a challenging task due to two main problems: path feasibility and path test data generation. Although optimization algorithms are efficient, their applications to EFSM testing have received very little attention. The aim of this paper is to develop a novel approach that utilizes optimization algorithms to test from EFSM models.
