Verifysoft announces Testwell CTC++ interface with MATLAB Simulink

(Offenburg/Germany, 12 April 2016)

Verifysoft announces an interface of Testwell CTC++ Test Coverage Analyser with MATLAB Simulink.
This interface, which is currently still under development, will be validated by selected customers based on their business requirements. Testwell CTC++ is a leading code coverage tool which supports all compilers and all embedded targets. The tool analyses all coverage levels up to MC/DC-Coverage and Multicondition Coverage. It can be used for analysing software written in C, C++, Java and C#. The coverage analyser can be used together with any unit testing tools.
Testwell CTC++ is integrated in many tool chains, testing environments, and software quality tools like dSPACE SystemDesk, dSPACE TargetLink, Imagix 4D, SonarQube, CATIA Systems AUTOSAR Builder (DASSAULT SYSTEMES), PikeTec Time Partition Testing (TPT), QTronic TestWeaver, and many others.
Testwell CTC++ is also integrated in many IDEs. Adding a new IDE or tool chain to the integration/interface list of Testwell CTC++ is very easy. The main prerequisite being that the IDE can be customized (menus, processes...).
Simulink from The Mathworks is an industry standard tool which is highly tuneable. Thanks to the simple but efficient script-based technology of Testwell CTC++, no specific features or ´patches´ have been needed for the interfacing. Adaptations of Testwell CTC++ to other tools need often only documented parameters.
Our video Testwell CTC++ (Verifysoft) and MATLAB /Simulink provides a complete Proof Of Concept demo on how to collect coverage data with Testwell CTC++ in MATLAB Simulink tool from The Mathworks.

GrammaTech CodeSonar Version 4.1 Available

(Ithaca/New York, 29 May 2015)

GrammaTech announces the version 4.1 of the static code analysis tool CodeSonar. The new version is now available for source code. CodeSonar 4.1 for Binaries is also imminent.
The highlights of CodeSonar 4.1 are:

  • Distributed Analysis: This feature improves the analysis speed dramatically. Previous versions of CodeSonar could already run the analysis phase in parallel, but only on multiple cores or CPUs on the same machine. CodeSonar can now distribute the analysis work across a loosely-coupled cluster of heterogeneous machines.
  • MISRA C Warning Classes: There are many new warning classes. Most of them check compliance with MISRA C:2012 and MISRA C:2004.
  • Warning Clustering: This new option tells CodeSonar to group warnings into clusters if they are sufficiently similar.
  • Configuration Tool: This is a new way to invoke CodeSonar to facilitate setting up a new hub or adding a machine to an analysis cluster.
  • Authentication: A hub can now be set up to use third-party authentication mechanisms such as LDAP. Administrators can add their own custom authenticators if they wish.
  • Analysis Presets: Via a new command-line option users can choose a "preset" set of configuration options. For example, codesonar analyze Foo -preset misra ... will use the configuration options that turn on all the new Misra C checkers.
  • Taint Path Checking: The user interface can now be used to show how taint can propagate along a specified path.
  • Score and Significance: Score is a numeric value assigned to warning instances. High-scoring warnings are more serious. Significance is a property of a warning class such as reliability, security, style, or redundancy.
  • New Platforms: CodeSonar now runs on two new platforms: NetBSD and FreeBSD.
  • Lightweight Access Control: It is possible to restrict access to information on the hub on a per-user basis. This is a temporary solution until a full role-based access control (RBAC) is delivered in CodeSonar 4.2.
