Parasoft releases nextgen unit test framework

Boston, Mass. – At the ESC here, Parasoft Embedded release its C++test, an integrated C/C++ toolkit for automating a broad range of best practices proven to improve software development team productivity and software quality.

According to Sergei Sokolov, General Manager of Parasoft Embedded, the latest release is designed to help development teams produce better code, test it more efficiently, and consistently monitor progress towards their quality goals.

“As the software components in embedded systems are becoming increasingly critical, the attention to quality in embedded software increases across the board,” he said.

A next-generation unit testing framework significantly reduces the time and effort required to create black-box functional tests. “Through a graphical interface, developers can rapidly define tests,” said Sokolov, “without having to worry about code complexities or dependencies—as well as parameterize the tests to increase coverage with minimal effort.C++test generates pure C or C++ tests for the specified test values, using a format similar to CppUnit.”

New support has been added for widely-used embedded environments such as the latest versions of Wind River Workbench, Microsoft Windows Mobile, QNX, and ARM Real View Development Suite.

It also includes substantially expanded static analysis capabilities expose additional categories of critical runtime errors related to memory, threading, and security vulnerabilities without runtime error detection, which often is not feasible for embedded development. Additionally, the latest release provides out-of-the box checking for the MISRA 2008 C++ standard for automotive systems.
