Testing is an important activity in software development in order to assure the correctness of software. However, testing is often disregarded in most agent oriented methodologies, mainly because they focus on analysis and design activities, and consider that implementation and testing issues can be performed using traditional techniques. But multi-agent systems implementation has some features that make it distinctive from traditional software. This paper presents an overview of testing in agent orientation based on the V-Model in order to establish the role of testing activities in an agent oriented development lifecycle. It also identifies how different types of testing are covered by previous work and the directions for further work.
