Telelogic Announces Automated Model-Based Testing Solution Utilizing the UML 2.0 Testing Profile
- New Graphical Testing Process Extends Design for Testability Enabling Robust Testing and Increasing Product Quality -
MALMÖ, Sweden and IRVINE, California – 13 February 2007 – Telelogic (Nordic Exchange/MidCap/TLOG ), today announced an automated model-based testing solution for the embedded/real-time market that fully supports the Unified Modeling Language™ (UML®) 2.0 testing profile.
The new offering, which is a key component of the company’s Design for Testability initiative, includes the latest releases of Telelogic Rhapsody® ATG and Rhapsody TestConductor™ products. These products improve test productivity, product quality and competitiveness, while reducing test and development costs by delivering the benefits of graphical modeling and automation associated with Model-Driven Development™ (MDD™) into the testing domain. They also provide a migration path from traditional code-based test development to model-based testing, and offer a new graphical test development approach that works seamlessly with the Rhapsody MDD environment.
“Design for Testability is an initiative that moves testing from its traditional place as the last step in the development process to much earlier in the design phase. This enables developers to uncover errors sooner, when they are less costly to fix,” said Ingemar Ljungdahl, Chief Technology Officer, Telelogic. “With the introduction of the latest version of Rhapsody ATG and TestConductor, developers can now create test cases quickly and can match the productivity gains made by developers and engineers working in a Rhapsody Model Driven Development environment. This approach can simplify testing even the most complex designs.”
The new Rhapsody test solutions offer developers powerful benefits:
- Users can meet the challenges presented by increased design complexity by graphically modeling test cases, thus leveraging the power of abstraction provided by models.
- Users can increase their efficiency and flexibility by automatically generating the test harness and test cases, previously a time-consuming and error-prone process.
- Users can use the UML 2.0 testing profile to integrate the entire design and test process seamlessly into one cohesive MDD environment, improving configuration management and change propagation.
Rhapsody ATG and TestConductor are available now.
