Dear Reactis User:
We are pleased to announce the availability of Reactis V2012.2
New Simulink Support
Configuration Variable Sets
V2012.2 includes a new feature called configuration variable sets that lets you specify that one configuration variable depends on another. Recall that in Reactis, configuration variables are workspace variables that are tagged for Reactis to change in between tests but not during a test. Specifying different possibilities for calibration variables are a common use for configuration variables.
To motivate the need for the new configuration variable set feature, consider software for a configurable transmission that can control either a 4-speed transmission with gear ratio of 3.0 or a 5-speed transmission with a gear ratio of 3.5. In prior versions of Reactis you could specify that numGears is a configuration variable with possible values 4 and 5 and that gearRatio is a configuration variable with possible values 3.0 and 3.5. However, given such a specification, Reactis would generate tests with all possible numGears/gearRatio combinations: 4/3.0, 4/3.5, 5/3.0, 5/3.5.
With the new configuration variable set feature, you can specify that Reactis should test only the desired subset of configuration variable combinations: 4/3.0, 5/3.5.
You may download the patches or full installers from the Reactis User Pages.
