Phaedrus Systems: SuperTest acknowledged as valuable test suite for compilers by SIG

Phaedrus Systems has announced that SuperTest test and validation suite for C and C++ compilers and libraries, from Solid Sands, has been ranked highest on coverage, maintainability and quality in a comparative study of compiler test suites used within the safety-critical markets. The evaluation was carried out by the Software Improvement Group (SIG) a specialist in evaluating software quality as defined by the ISO/IEC 25010 standard.

Traceability is very important during a qualification process. SuperTest validates against many language specifications and it includes both language and library tests. When it comes to qualification of the compiler and library, SIG confirms that the key advantage of SuperTest over other compiler test suite is that it is organized according to the language standard. This means that there is a mapping between the tests and the specification of the compiler.

ISO/IEC 25010:2011 Systems and software engineering -- Systems and software Quality Requirements and Evaluation (SQuaRE) -- System and software quality models provides a software quality model, with defined attributes, which is intended to provide an objective methodology for assessing software quality.
