    "description": "<p>Modern interactive software, such as computer games, employ complex user interfaces. Although these user interfaces make the games attractive and&nbsp;powerful, unfortunately they also make them extremely difficult to test. Not only&nbsp;do we have to deal with their functional complexity, but also the fine grained interactivity of their user interface blows up their interaction space, so that traditional<br>\nautomated testing techniques have trouble handling it. An agent-based testing approach offers an alternative solution: agents&rsquo; goal driven planning, adaptivity, and&nbsp;reasoning ability can provide an extra edge towards effective navigation in complex interaction space. This paper presents aplib, a Java library for programming&nbsp;intelligent test agents, featuring novel tactical programming as an abstract way&nbsp;to exert control over agents&rsquo; underlying reasoning-based behavior. This type of&nbsp;control is suitable for programming testing tasks. Aplib is implemented in such a&nbsp;way to provide the fluency of a Domain Specific Language (DSL). Its embedded&nbsp;DSL approach also means that aplib programmers will get all the advantages that&nbsp;Java programmers get: rich language features and a whole array of development&nbsp;tools.</p>",
