The new Component Coverage functionality supports customers with limited target resources by allowing users to break their application into multiple logical components and instrument each component in isolation. This feature is integrated with the system test automation features of VectorCAST/QA which automatically runs all tests against each component and combines the coverage results into a single report.

VectorCAST 2018 provides full support for the coupling analysis and verification required by the DO-178B and C standards for avionics certification. Static analysis is performed to identify the couples that exist in the implementation, and source code instrumentation is performed to ensure that each of the identified couples is tested. Additionally, a simple to use graphical component editor allows user to easily create a component definition that matches the application’s architecture.

VectorCAST 2018 enables test collaboration across the whole enterprise, through the introduction of many new extensions. The user profits of newly developed functions for test artifact sharing and maintenance, realtime analytics, and improved test automation.
