Objects interact in order to implement behavior. One important
problem when integrating and testing object-oriented software is
to determine an effective order of class integration and to reduce
the number of required test stubs. The strong connectivity
between classes, in general, and the presence of dependency
cycles, in particular, complicate this task. We present, in this
paper, a new class integration testing strategy based on a new
Class Dependency Model (CDM). The CDM model takes into
account the interactions between classes.
