Kovair Software Adds Testing Capabilities to its LDRA Integration Adapter/Connector

Date 2016/3/30 7:56:58 | Topic: Product News

Kovair Software, one of the leaders in Integrated Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) announced the phase II release of its Omnibus Integration Adapter/Connector for LDRA Testbed, a leading product in providing core static and dynamic analysis engines for both host and embedded software.

LDRA Testbed provides the means to enforce compliance with coding standards such as MISRA, JSF++ AV, CERT C, and CWE and also provides visibility of software flaws that might typically pass through the standard build and test processes to become latent problems. In addition, test effectiveness feedback is provided through structural coverage analysis reporting facilities which support the requirements of the DO-178B/C standard up to and including Level-A. Safety critical and security critical software development brings in a global array of components and technology providers. This makes managing the quality and strictness of maintaining different standards over different years of development contracts extremely challenging, particularly, in light of tight budgets and time-to market requirements.

In the phase I release, Kovair Omnibus connector for LDRA Testbed enabled developers to easily apply LDRA’s static, dynamic and system level code analysis capabilities from within their IDEs. The phase I integration also allowed the senior quality managers to see test results from LDRA using the centralised repository of Kovair, and then create reports and dashboards for decision making.

In this phase II release, Kovair Omnibus has extended its integration support for LDRA’s TBrun module for executing unit test (Black/White Box mode), integration/module test and isolation unit test. This will allow users to invoke the TBrun interface from the extended interface of the IDE where they can create and execute test cases. The regression report from TBrun in HTML format can be invoked and seen from the extended interface provided by Kovair. This capability enhancement of executing unit tests will help organisations to move one step ahead for implementing a proper CI environment. The enhanced integration with more granular level code analysis will increase the confidence of organisations for all software development projects in safety-critical, security-critical, and business-critical applications.

Kovair Omnibus engineering team is currently working on the next phase of the integration with TBmanager to enable team-wide workflow management. Implementation of requirements based testing using the TBmanager module is also in progress. "This phase will increase both developer productivity and the quality of their output by allowing them to carry out different types of code analysis coupled with unit testing. Developers will also be able to see real-time reports of different analysis performed by LDRA from their own IDEs," says Ian Hennell, Operations Director.
