Vector Software, the world’s leading provider of innovative software solutions for robust embedded software quality, announced today the release of VectorCAST version 6.4, the most advanced test automation platform for C/C++ and Ada development. VectorCAST 6.4 includes a host of new features and enhancements in data aggregation, reporting, usability, and tool integration. Major new features include:
• Function and Function Call Coverage: Required for ISO 26262 certification, VectorCAST 6.4 Function Call Coverage for each test case and in aggregate across all flavors of testing.
• Static Analysis Integration Improvements: VectorCAST out of the box integration with leading static analysis tools has been reworked to provide a consistent set of controls, regardless of the static tool being used. The configuration, annotated listings, and message viewer provide the same workflow for VectorCAST/Lint, PRQA QA∙C, QA∙C++, and Klocwork.
Additionally there are several new language-specific features for Ada development including:
• VectorCAST/Ada Stub By Function: Stubbing of functions can now be dynamically controlled on a per-test case basis in VectorCAST/Ada. This allows testing to be performed on one individual function in complete isolation from its dependent functions.
• VectorCAST/Ada Change-Based Testing: New Change-Based Testing functionality built into VectorCAST/Ada allows engineers to quickly and easily assess the impact of a source code change on not only their code, but the entire software application.
VectorCAST 6.4 is immediately available to customers worldwide. To learn more about VectorCAST 6.4, please visit: www.vectorcast.com/vectorcast-64.
