Much of the research into testing model-driven systems has focused on checking the models used to drive code generation, and testing the transformations that are used. This is predicated upon the use of full code generation. However, much of the model-driven system development used in practice is based on the use of partial code generation, where the developer implements sections of the system by modifying or adding to the generated code. In these situations, it is important to test for problems in or caused by this manually modified code. In this paper, we present a pragmatic approach to testing model-driven systems based on partial code generation. Our approach uses model-based testing techniques based on reuse of development models to drive test case generation.
