As we move from developing procedure-oriented to object-oriented programs, the complexity tradi-
tionally found in functions and procedures is moving to the connections among components. Different
faults occur when components are integrated to form higher level structures that aggregate the behavior
and state of the components. Consequently, we need to place more effort on testing the connections
among components. Although object-oriented technologies provide abstraction mechanisms for build-
ing components that can then be integrated to form applications, it also adds new compositional relations
