Abstract: Regression testing can be systematically applied at the software architecture level in order to reduce the cost of retesting modified systems, and also to assess the regression testability of the evolved system.
With the advent of model-based specification and anal- ysis of software architectures, regression testing at the ar- chitectural level can be handled by analyzing how the ar- chitectural model evolves when moving from an initial to a subsequent version.
This paper analyzes how model differencing, a recent research topic in the model-based community, can be em- ployed for implementing model-based architecture-level re- gression testing.
