Considerable work has been previously done on testing the static aspects of object-oriented systems. This includes both units testing of individual objects as well as integration testing which tests whether the static relationships between objects such as inheritance and aggregation have been properly implemented. Little work has been done on testing the dynamic aspects beyond testing individual methods. Important issues such as message sequencing and order of execution of methods and inter-object dynamics have not been adequately addressed in the literature. In this paper, we propose a method of software testing the dynamics of these object oriented systems.
