This paper presents a new approach for testing parallel and distributed programs based on specifications. The requirements are formulated in temporal logic. The description of test cases is extended by control patterns enabling to cope with the demands of parallel applications. For the formulation of these patterns, an abstract execution model called POEM is introduced. After executing a parallel program with respect to a test case specification and its patterns, the resulting trace is checked against the temporal logic specification of the predefined requirements
