This paper introduces TestMEReq, an automated tool for early validation of requirements. TestMEReq supports requirements engineers (REs) in the validation of the correctness, completeness and consistency of elicited requirements with minimum effort and time through generated abstract tests components: test requirements and test cases, and a mock-up prototype of the user interface (UI). Abstract tests are derived from abstract models called Essential Use Cases (EUCs) and the Essential User Interface (EUI). Our evaluation results show that TestMEReq is useful in the requirements validation process: it reduces the effort and time spent to ensure good quality requirements.
