The increasing complexity and size of software products combined with pressure to have shorter time-to-market is making manual testing techniques too costly and unscalable. This is particularly observed in industrial systems where continuous integration and deployment are applied. Therefore, there is a growing need to automate the testing process and make it scalable with respect to the context of real-world and large industrial applications. While there are already some solutions for generation of unit level test cases, automatic generation of integration level test cases to verify interaction of software components poses specific challenges especially in object-oriented applications. In this paper, we describe our ongoing work in introducing a solution to automate generation of integration test cases for C# applications by exploiting the code analysis capabilities of Microsoft .NET compiler platform known as Roslyn. This is done in collaboration with ABB Industrial Automation Control Technologies (IACT) in Västerås-Sweden, where the software for 800xA distributed control system is developed.
