Various approaches for the automated test case generation and execution in the area of graphical user interface testing (GUI) have emerged in recent years. Two notable trends are model-based testing as well as capture and replay technique. In this contribution we present an approach which allows a meaningful combination of both in order to be able to derive fully executable test cases from usage-models and to keep them highly maintainable in a SCRUM process. We first define a set of re-useable test steps by means of a capture and replay tool (TAISpy). Next, we show how it is possible to directly integrate these test steps into the usage models of a GUI and subsequently to generate executable test cases from them without further refinement or transformation to other formats. General idea, implemented architecture, tool chain and, finally, a case study are presented.
