C.2 V2018 (27 June 2018)
The V2018 release of Reactis includes the bug fixes that were included in release V2017.2.1 plus the new features listed below.
C.2.1 Newly Supported Simulink Features
The following Simulink features are supported in Reactis V2018:
C.2.2 Open Scopes from Test Suite Browser
You can now open scopes from within the test suite browser for any signals stored in a test suite (inputs, outputs, test points).
C.2.3 Revamped User-Guided Simulation
The User-Guided Simulation mode of Reactis Simulator has been revamped. The new Next Input Values dialog now lets you either enter a concrete value (as it previously did) or an expression to be evaluated to compute the next value for an input. This offers an easy way to specify a ramp or sine wave for in input signal. Additionally, the stepping buttons are now available in the Next Input Values dialog as well as the main Simulator window. Also, you can now control Configuration Variables (at the start of a test) and observe outputs or test points. Scopes can easily be opened for a subset of signals from the Next Input Values dialog.
C.2.4 Comments for Excluded Coverage Targets
Reactis V2015 introduced the capability to exclude individual coverage targets from being tracked. When you exclude a target, Reactis Tester will not attempt to exercise the target when it generates tests and the target will not be factored into coverage tracking and reporting. V2018 enhances this feature by letting you include a comment along with any excluded target. This comment might include when the target was excluded and by whom, along with some explanation of why it was excluded.
C.2.5 API Improvements
New functions to remove Validator Objectives and to query the values of parameters in Validator Objectives were added.
C.2.6 Reactis for EML Plugin
Added support for
