Continuous Integration and Test with VectorCAST/Manage
VectorCAST/Manage takes existing VectorCAST/C++ and VectorCAST/Ada environments and imports them into a VectorCAST/Manage project. These individual "test environments" can then be grouped into larger "Test Suites".
Environments can be members of multiple Test Suites. This enables users to structure their VectorCAST/Manage project to match the architecture of their application. Because Test Suites can be easily duplicated, the same tests can be run using various source baselines, on different host platforms, or with different compilers.
VectorCAST/Manage integrates with a variety of Configuration Management tools so that your regression testing is always pulling the most recent version of your code.
In addition, VectorCAST/Manage can indicate which test suites need to be rerun because they are out of date, meaning that the source code being tested in that test suite has been modified since the tests were last executed. This “impact of change” analysis allows developers to easily rerun a subset of tests they know are impacted by a source code change they have made, prior to the full regression test suite being rerun. This further speeds up development and testing activities.
Finally, existing VectorCAST/Cover environments can be easily aggregated with the ongoing regression testing results that VectorCAST/Manage generates from rerunning the VectorCAST/C++ and VectorCAST/Ada unit tests. Multiple VectorCAST/Cover environments can also be aggregated within VectorCAST/Manage to easily show how all testing, across many test runs and many phases of testing, combines to create the code coverage results. And for each file of code, details are provided as to exactly which test runs contributed code coverage to the overall coverage metrics.
VectorCAST/Manage is integrated with an internal SQL database so that projects can analyze progress and trends over time. And VectorCAST/Manage provides a Python interface which allows organizations to create their own reports that include the exact information they are interested in.
