LDRA has released a newly revamped TBmanager, V8.4. TBmanager is the task-based interface for the LDRA tool suite, creating a common user experience among the LDRA modules and providing complete control of LDRA Testbed for static and dynamic analysis and coding standards, TBrun for unit testing, and TBreq for requirements traceability. In addition to improving overall ease of use, TBmanager V8.4 accommodates regression suites, test scripts and testing of applications developed using multiple programming languages.
TBmanager’s collaboration facility supports peer review tasks by enabling a review team to comment on source code based on the LDRA tool suite’s application of coding standards such as MISRA, JSF++ AV, Cert C, and others. Comments are automatically logged and a pass/fail vote is tallied and recorded.
TBmanager’s ability to coordinate multiple heterogeneous language environments is a critical step forward. To optimize application development and add functionality, many companies depend on the efficiency of Java and C++ programming languages. These object-oriented languages are integrated into legacy software systems typically written in Ada or C and coexist in a heterogeneous environment. TBmanager ensures that all aspects of the code can be viewed and managed together systemically regardless of the number or type of programming languages.
The ability to leverage regression test suites and scripts ensures that companies with years of in-house testing can improve their software quality processes without losing the investment and quality controls they have already developed. As a task-based interface, TBmanager enables users to graphically compare and manage all components of software development, whether requirements, code, test cases or documentation, eases the integration of new functionality with legacy code, and creates a common control and management interface between the various tools aimed at creating zero-defect software quality.
