Modeling and testing for a parallel software system is very difficult, because parallel behaviors leads to system state explosion. Many testing methods are testing with a large number of redundancies. In this paper, a test sequence selection method for parallel software systems is shown. The method is based on linear behavior sequences which is preparing for testing, called LBSPT. Firstly, a formal model for software system specification is constructed based on Coloured Petri Net (CPN), called system model, and LBSPT is also modeled based on CPN, called LBSPT model. A test sequence selection method is defined on these models. The method could select all of test sequences related to LBSPT, and does not contain any redundancy. The state explode problem in software testing is solved to a certain extent. Practices show that the effect of this method is better than other methods such as random walk.
