This talk gives an overview of statistical testing based on a usage model, focusing on opportunities for automation in the process. In particular, an overview of the Java Usage Model Builder Library (JUMBL), a Java class library to support statistical testing, is given. The JUMBL supports the development and analysis of usage models, generation and transformation of tests, and analysis of test results.
