Testwell CTC++ to show Test Coverage for PikeTec Time Partition Testing (TPT)

(Berlin, Offenburg/Germany, 11 September 2012)

Testwell CTC++ shows now the test coverage of Time Partition Testing (TPT). TPT is a model-based testing tool for testing embedded systems, especially the testing of control systems. The tool supports all important fields of the test process which are in detail the management of tests, test modelling, test execution, test assessment, and test documentation.TPT is used to set up test cases based on requirements. Testwell CTC++ shows the status of test coverage during the test of C code as required by standards like ISO 26262, DO-178C and IEC 61508. If CTC++ reveals that the test coverage is insufficient, further tests can be set up with TPT.

SAE World Congress in Detroit: Automating AUTOSAR Functional Test Design with Model-Based Testing

At the SAE World Congress in Detroit´s COBO Center on Tuesday April 24th, Conformiq´s CTO Stephan Schulz will be presenting technical paper entitled "Automating AUTOSAR Functional Test Design with Model-Based Testing".
Abstract: Classic problems of the functional software test development industry often include poorly documented coverage of specification requirements, challenging delivery cycles, high software quality requirements, costly test development, inflexible test sets, and high maintenance costs due to ever changing requirements. Technology and commercial software exist today that can help to resolve all of these issues by automating test design with model-based testing (MBT), i.e., by automatically generating tests and test documentation. In numerous case studies over a wide range of application areas, MBT has been independently confirmed to cut testing costs significantly by increasing productivity, to enable up to 91% code coverage during test execution, and to locate numerous defects that have escaped detection using conventional testing approaches.
Stephan Schulz introduces automated test design and compare it with conventional software test development. He outlines a methodology for developing functional tests from models that describes the operation of the system (aspect) to be tested. Automated test design is presented by showing modelling, steering of test generation, test case review, and all the way to test script generation based on the MBT tool Conformiq Designer™.

Now Available - Add-ons for Testwell CTC++ to measure Test Coverage of Source Code written in C# and Java

(Offenburg/Germany, 9 February 2012)

Verifysoft Technology GmbH announces two add-ons that upgrade the existing test coverage analyser "Testwell CTC++" to be used with C# and Java source codes.
The functional scopes of these two add-ons is listed subsequently: the add-on "CTC++ for Java and Android" measures test coverages for Java code projects whereas the add-on "CTC++ for C#" measures test coverages of software written in C#.
Equally to "Testwell CTC++" both add-ons also deliver all levels of test coverages like "Statement Coverage", "Function Coverage", "Decision/Branch Coverage", "Condition Coverage", "Modified Condition/Decision Coverage" (MC/DC) as well as "Multi Condition Coverage" (MCC).
Ultimately, with these add-ons "Testwell CTC++" is the sole test coverage analysing tool (on the market today) that allows safety critical software written in C, C++, C# or Java being measured for test coverage at all.
