Grochtmann and Grimm have developed the classification-tree method (CTM) to facilitate software testers in generating test cases from functional specifications. While the method is very useful, it is hindered by the lack of a systematic tree construction algorithm. This problem has been alleviated by Chen et al. via their "integrated" classification-tree methodology (ICTM). In this paper, we describe and discuss a prototype system ADDICT that is built on ICTM.
