Vector Software Introduces Covered By Analysis Capability in VectorCAST 6.3 Suite

Annotation Feature Combines With Test Execution Coverage to Complete Metric Reporting

PROVIDENCE, RI--(Marketwired - Mar 23, 2015) -  Vector Software, the world's leading provider of innovative software solutions for robust embedded software quality, announced today the availability of VectorCAST/CBA (Covered By Analysis) which allows users in regulated industries to augment measured coverage with manual analysis to achieve the mandated 100% code coverage. VectorCAST/CBA is available as an add-on for all VectorCAST products, and provides an intuitive editor which allows users to provide analysis for statements, branch outcomes, or MC/DC pairs depending on the coverage level. 

The ability to combine Coverage Analysis data sets with measured code coverage from unit, integration, and system testing, provides a single repository for all coverage metrics, and greatly simplifies reporting. In addition, the CBA feature includes an import and export capability enabling analysis to be shared across distributed teams and leveraged over the entire application life-cycle.

"Development groups in regulated industries have historically performed manual analysis of small portions of their code base to reach the 100% coverage threshold, using home-grown techniques," said John Paliotta, Chief Technology Officer, Vector Software. "VectorCAST/CBA allows this analysis work to be integrated with testing activities and greatly reduces the analysis effort."

The Covered By Analysis feature is offered as a layered product for the VectorCAST test suite.
