news from Testwell
- Testwell tools are Year 2000 compliant
CTA++ ships nowNovember 1998
Testwell notifies that all its testing tools are so
called Year 2000 Compliant. In saying so we assume that the
underlying operating system provides the date information correctly,
when the Testwell tools ask for it by normal operating system calls.
Just recently formal tests on CTA++, CTB, CTC++ and CMT++ were
completed. No problems were found in the tool behaviors before and
after the millennium change.
Testwell releases new testing tool CTA++ at Softec'98
First customer deliveries of CTA++, C++ Test Aider, have been done.
New CTC++ to MSVC++ Developer Studio integration kit
Testwell releases a new testing tool called CTA++, C++ Test Aider, at Helsinki Wanha
Satama Exhibition Centre on 2-3 September 1998. CTA++ is an innovative
test harnessing tool for testing C++ classes, libraries and subsystem.
This is a major re-write of the integration making
the use of CTC++ astonishingly simple and efficient in this
environment. This integration is available for CTC++ for Windows-NT/95
with Microsoft Visual C++ Developer Studio.
Testwell exhibiting at Softec'98 (Helsinki, 2-3
Sep 1998) June 1998
Softec'98 is a focused fair targeted for specialist and decision makers
working in computer technology applications in industry. Testing tools
is one of the themes of these fairs.
The fairs will be held at
Helsinki/Wanha Satama exhibition center on 2-3 September 1998. We will
have a stand there and will demonstrate our testing tools for C and
C++. Read more of this event from http://www.helsinginmessut.fi/softec98/
Should you be interested in our testing tools and would like to see
them alive, please drop us a note and we'll do our best to send you a
free ticket to this exhibition.
TBGEN available with GNAT Ada compiler
The TBGEN System, Test Bed Generator for Ada, can now be used together
with the GNAT Ada compiler. Sun/Solaris and Win-NT/95 versions are now
- First CTC++/Host-Target Support deliveries done
The CTC++/Host-Target Support is a separate add-on package to CTC++
v4.3 (or later). It facilitates running the instrumented program in the
target, collecting the test execution history back to the host, and in
the host producing the normal coverage and timing reports.
This Host-Target Support
package assumes normal CTC++ on some of the hosts we support. In
principle the target machine can be of any hardware architecture, it
can run any operating system (or be a "bare machine"), and the used
C/C++ cross-compiler can be of any brand. The requirement is only that
the host and the target can be put program-to-program wise communicate
with each other (target sends a character stream to host at the end of
the test session or at user-selected points). The target must also
tolerate the small overhead caused of the CTC++ instrumentation.
CTB v4.1.2 released January 1998
This is a small upgrade to CTB v4.1.1 and it is currently made
available on Windows-95/NT with MSVC++ platform only. Support customers
