Multi-Metric Test Coverage Analysis
Parasoft Test's multi-metric test coverage analyzer—including line, statement, block,
decision/branch, path, and MC/DC, and condition coverage—reports coverage metrics as well as graphically displays
tested vs. untested code via annotated source code. Back tracing from coverage elements to the corresponding test cases
enables users to analyze test results and extend the test cases for better coverage, with higher efficiency.
Integrated Multi-Level Coverage
Parasoft Test can track coverage at all levels of test—and deliver integrated reporting for all tested levels.
Integrated coverage can include:
- Unit testing
- Integration testing
- Plugin testing
- Server-side testing
- Automated end-to-end functional tests
- Scripted tests
- Manual user acceptance tests
- Testing on the host, similar, or embedded target
Reporting for Compliance, Auditability
Robust and easily configurable reporting capabilities help you document that applications comply with test coverage requirements mandated for regulatory compliance (FDA, DO-178B/C, safety-critical, etc.).
Along with a clear report of each test's pass/fail status, we can report:
- Coverage percentages by file, class, function/method
- Annotated source code
- Coverage for individual test cases
- Files with coverage below a specified threshold
Automated Test Generation and Optimization Boosts Coverage
Parasoft Test can automatically analyze code then generate a unit-level test suite that achieves high coverage.
Moreover, Parasoft Test provides a variety of technologies to help you increase the test coverage. For example:
- Easy extension of the generated test cases.
- An object repository and flexible stubs framework to make tests more realistic.
- Data-driven testing with different sets of data (automatically-generated or from a data source).
Beyond Coverage Analysis
Coverage analysis is a critical component of a comprehensive quality process...but it is just one component.
The most effective quality processes involve a combination of test and analysis practices embedded throughout the SDLC.
That's why Parasoft Test's coverage analysis technologies are fully integrated with a broad range of complementary
capabilities ranging from peer review, to
unit testing, to
end-to-end functional and load testing, to
For organizations ready to take the next step towards ensuring that quality software is produced consistently and efficiently,
Parasoft Development Testing Platform integrates policy-driven project management with Parasoft Test's Automated Defect Prevention and end-to-end QA testing.
This ensures predictable project outcomes while driving unprecedented levels of productivity and application quality.
