The most pragmatic way to monitor the completeness of the testing process is by monitoring coverage metrics. Parasoft C/C++test’s code coverage metrics can be used for assessing unit, integration, and system level testing completeness, supporting all important types of code coverage (function, call, line, statement, block, path, decision, simple condition, and MC/DC). Coverage results are available directly in the IDE, with convenient views and highlights in the source code editor, as well as in the form of static html or pdf reports, and dynamic reports through Parasoft’s centralized reporting dashboard.
Users can monitor applications executed natively on the desktop, cross-platform using simulators, or on real embedded hardware. C/C++test’s coverage module is optimized to minimize the impact on the execution performance and test binary footprint, which makes it suitable for use with high end, server-based applications, as well as very limited systems based on 16 bit microcontrollers.
