Software testing is one of the most important phases of software development life cycle. Software testing is being used by all the software developers to test the overall working of their software. Testing is one of the most important means to validate the correctness of systems. A UML state machine diagram is a model which represents the dynamic behaviour of the system. The aim of this paper is to fully automate the testing process of software by generating the test cases in the design phase where, the state machine diagram is modelled using standard Unified Modelling Language (UML) tool called StarUML which exports the state machine diagram to its internal XMI representation. This XMI file is then pre-processed to extract the relevant data and store the data into an immediate data structure. After traversing the data structure, a set of test path will be generated and for each test path, test case will be generated
