Title: Your tests as a simulator 6.30- 7.00
Abstract: Test Driven Development advocates to write a test before you write your code. It ensures that you have some test cases in place and that your final implementation is indeed reasonably tested. However, for quick prototyping, one still has the feeling to do duplicated work. In this talk we show how for deterministic C or Erlang programs, one can use the test cases for simulation. That is: it suffices to write the test code, writing the actual code is no longer needed.
The talk is based upon work in progress in the context of the Prowess project, an EU funded research project for testing web services.

manipulated variations in the board state, this proved to be
non-trivial, and something that required testing to get right. After
shrugging off the idea of writing a single case unit-test, I decided
