The problem of generating the test cases is one of the most important issues in the software testing research and practice. Test threads, especially the thin-threads which are the usage scenarios in a software system, are frequently used to generate test cases for the scenario-based software testing. However, the derivation of the test threads is usually a manual and labor-intensive task. In this paper, we propose an automated approach using anti-ant-like agents to directly generate test threads from the UML artifacts. The generated test threads can then be used to generate and to prioritize the test cases for scenario-based software testing.
