The importance of software in nearly all of today’s engineering
disciplines demands for development and validation techniques ensuring high
dependability of complex software systems. Component-based software
development as the ultimate approach for dealing with complexity shifts the focus
of verification from unit to integration tests addressing the correctness of
component interactions. As the current state-of-the-art does not include a
systematic and tool-supported approach to interface testing, this paper presents a
procedure for the automatic generation of integration test data based on genetic
