Abstract The rapid increase of software-intensive systems' size and complexity makes it infeasible to exhaustively run testing on the low level of source code. Instead, the testing should be executed on the high level of system architecture, i.e., at a level where component or subsystems relate and interoperate or interact collectively with the system environment. Testing at this level is system testing, including hardware and software in union. Moreover, when integrating complex, distributed systems and providing support for conformance, interoperability and interoperation tests, we need to have an explicit test description. In this vision paper, we discuss (1) how to select tests from logical architecture, especially based on the dependencies within the system, and (2) how to represent the selected tests in explicit and readable manner, so that the software systems can be cost-e!ciently maintained and evolved over their entire life-cycle. In addition, we further study the relevance between di↵erent tests, based on which, we can optimise the test suites for e!cient testing, and propose optimal resource allocation strategies for cloud-based testing.
