The Test Description Language (TDL) is an emerging standard from the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) that targets the abstract description of tests for communicating systems and other application domains. TDL is meant to be used as an intermediate format between requirements and executable test cases. This paper explores the automated generation of TDL test descriptions from requirements expressed as Use Case Map (UCM) models. One generation mechanism, which exploits UCM scenario definitions, is prototyped in the jUCMNav tool and illustrated through an example. This transformation enables the exploration of model-based testing where the use of TDL models simplifies the generation of tests in various languages (including the Testing and Test Control Notation – TTCN-3) from UCM requirements. Remaining challenges are also discussed in the paper.
