Future Internet applications are expected to be much more complex and powerful, by exploiting various dynamic capabilities For testing, this is very challenging, as it means that the range of possible behavior to test is much larger, and moreover it may at the run time change quite frequently and significantly with respect to the assumed behavior tested prior to the release of such an application. The traditional way of testing will not be able to keep up with such dynamics. The Future Internet Testing (FITTEST) project (http://crest.cs.ucl.ac.uk/fittest/), a research project funded by the European Commission (grant agreement n. 257574) from 2010 till 2013, was set to explore new testing techniques that will improve our capacity to deal with the challenges of testing Future Internet applications. Such techniques should not be seen as replacement of the traditional testing, but rather as a way to complement it. This paper gives an overview of the set of tools produced by the FITTEST project, implementing those techniques.

The Future Internet (FI) will be a complex interconnection of services, applications, content and media running in the cloud. In  we describe the main challenges associated with the testing of applications running in the FI. There we present a research agenda that has been defined in order to address the testing challenges identified. The Future Internet Testing (FITTEST) project, a research project funded by the European Commission (grant agreement n. 257574) from 2010 till 2013 to work on part of this research agenda. A whole range of techniques were developed within the project, which are then implemented as tools; this paper gives an overview of these tools. These tools, and the kinds of challenges that they can mitigate are listed below.
