Vision Paper: Towards Model-Based Energy Testing
Today, energy consumption is one of the major challenges for optimisation of future software applications and ICT infrastructures. To develop software w.r.t. its energy consumption, testing is an essential activity, since testing allows quality assurance and thus, energy consumption reduction during the software’s development. Although first approaches measuring and predicting software’s energy consumption for its execution on a specific hardware platform exist, no model-based testing approach has been developed, yet. In this paper we present our vision of a model-based energy testing approach that uses a combination of abstract interpretation and run-time profiling to predict the energy consumption of software applications and to derive energy consumption test cases.
