Are you testing responsibly?

Are you currently using or evaluating tools for testing safety-related embedded software applications? Choosing the right solution is critical. Do you really want to base your decision on a fancy brochure or a canned product evaluation?

TestResponsibly is a series of short videos demonstrating real-world embedded testing activities using the VectorCAST embedded software testing platform. Ideas for these videos come directly from embedded software engineers.

If you have an idea for a video, contact us! If we use your suggestion, we will send you a TestResponsibly t-shirt!

Range Testing

One of the challenges of building test cases is to ensure that as the code changes; the existing tests catch bugs caused by the changes. This example shows how VectorCAST simplifies the creation of tests based on the ranges of the C/C++ types. There are two benefits of this sort of testing:...

Linked List

This video will demonstrate how to setup a linked list of C structures within a VectorCAST test case. You will see how easy it is to allocate instances of a structure, set values for the fields, and allocate nested pointers.

Exception Example

As C++ becomes more common in embedded systems, it is often the case that C++ exceptions are used to handle anomalous conditions or catastrophic errors. In this case, it is important to be able to have a thrown exception be caught and verified by the test. This video shows an example of...

Testing on Embedded Targets

We received a request to demonstrate how easy it is to test on embedded targets using VectorCAST.

My suggestion is to include a video about Testing on Embedded Target with an example. Not many people know how the tool communicates with target and runs the test cases. Since

Testing Multiple Configurations

In many industries, such as automotive, it is very common to have a single code base deployed into multiple applications. Often times the configuration is controlled by macros or configuration data files. This video shows how the sophisticated test editor built into VectorCAST simplifies this...

Loading Array Data from a File

This suggestion comes from one of our customers in Singapore. In this video, we demonstrate how easy it is to use VectorCAST user code to load data from a flat file into an array.

My suggestion is to include a video about using User Code in VectorCAST. The example are: read
