In model-driven engineering, models are not primarily developed for documentation and requirement specification purposes, but promoted to first-class artifacts, from which executable code is generated. As a consequence, typical development activities like testing must be performed on the model level. In this paper, we propose to use overlapping information inherent in multiple views of models for automatic testing. Using a prototype based on the model checker Spin we show the feasibility of this approach and identify future challenges.
