Reactis for C helps engineers build better software faster by finding bugs earlier.
Reactis for C is an automated debugging and test-generation tool which
discovers defects in C programs using the Reactis Simulate/Test/Validate
paradigm. Using Reactis for C, engineers may:
Generate test suites from C code which comprehensively exercise all parts of a program (structural testing).
- Find run-time errors, such as memory errors, overflow errors, divide-by-zero errors, etc.
- Interactively execute a program while tracking progress towards full coverage of a variety
of coverage targets including MC/DC targets.
- Perform functional tests to determine if a program can ever violate any of
its requirements, including safety properties.
- Replay a specific execution sequence which triggers a defect
in order to understand, diagnose, and fix a bug.
|Figure 1: Reactis for C is a standalone application that reads the
.c and .h files comprising a program to generate tests and find bugs.|
Reactis for C also includes an array of sophisticated debugging features including
breakpoints, value-tracking scopes, immediate detection of memory errors,
and the ability to view macro-expanded code.
In this paper, we discuss how Reactis for C
may be used to automate different verification and validation activities
in your software quality assurance process.
