Hello experts,

I have few questions with regard to TESSY tool for unit and
integration testing. I have gone throgh HITEX website but i couldn't
get information to following questions:

1. Can TESSY working on a TARGET will give you the information about
MEMORY LEAKAGE?
2. Can TESSY be used to test RTOS? i.e. can it give me the information
about DEAD LOCKING? SYNCHRONIZATION ISSUES and all that?

Looking for forward to your quick replies?

Thanks for your time in advance.

Cheers!!
-Dk

Hi Dk,

I thought a real expert may have answered this but in their absence at the
moment I'll throw in my thoughts.

Firstly if you have a legal paid for and supported copy of TESSY then
contact Hitex directly and they will help you.

I think on both your points TESSY doesn't test these items, you seem to
want something that tells you that your application works OK. I believe
TESSY only operates at the function level by giving it all the function
inputs and outputs and defining the expected outputs. TESSY then
automates the actual testing by running all the vectors for you.
Therefore you can go and do something else and regression testing is much
more efficient.

It relies very much on you having good functional requirements, in
principle you should give the functional requirements to both your
software engineer and your test engineer. They work in parallel, one
writing the software and the other writing the test vectors and then they
come together to perform the test with TESSY. Of course you will get 100%
pass because we all work in this manner all the time so it's second nature
to us all and TESSY just confirms everything is OK. ;-)

Dave.
