Solid Sands: SuperTest with native Windows support and requirements traceability for C and C++

Solid Sands announced the latest update to its SuperTest Mondrian release. This significant update adds a raft of new features, including out-of-the-box installation into Windows environments, direct traceability of pass/fail test results back to specific constructs for a range of C and C++ language variants, and a new Python-based test driver. It also features support for the Bounds-Checking Interfaces in C11 Annex K, easy integration of test reports into Jenkins continuous integration (CI) tools and numerous improvements and additions to its language and library suites.

Previous versions of SuperTest utilized a POSIX shell for scripting the compiler-under-test and its execution environment. Today’s update now also provides a native Windows installer and comes with test-driver interfaces in both POSIX and Python.

Update #3 to the SuperTest Mondrian release also contains a new requirements traceability feature that links individual compiler test results directly back to the C and C++ language constructs that initiated them. Different variants of the language have different section and subsection numbering, which can make it difficult to pinpoint the exact C or C++ language constructs that a compiler fails to implement properly. Mapping individual test results to the section/subsection of the relevant language specification, and layering this on top of SuperTest’s unique test coverage and fine-grain reporting, offers the unprecedented ability to identify and deal with compiler errors – a facility that is equally useful to both compiler and application developers. Mappings are currently available for C90, C99 and C++03. Mappings for other C-language variants are in the pipeline.

Update #3 to the SuperTest Mondrian release also includes numerous improvements and additions to SuperTest’s language and library suites.
