Wind River introduces the latest version of Wind River Test Management, a test automation system for monitoring, executing and managing embedded device software testing. The full-featured test management solution identifies high-risk segments in production code; enabling optimized testing that focuses just on changes between builds.

The instrumentation technology found in Wind River Test Management 4.0 enables test coverage at the branch and block level, working directly on optimized production binaries. In addition to its capability to analyze production code to understand changes between builds, the system highlights areas of the application that are impacted by changes and focuses the testing resources on those higher-risk segments. The Automatic Test Suite Generator module acts as a Decision Support System and reduces risk and test cycles by creating an enhanced test suite according to customer defined rules and constraints.

This version also provides an open framework for custom integration to any third-party test management, defect tracking, and requirement management application, as well as specific integration add-ons for IBM Rational Quality Manager, IBM DOORS, IBM ClearQuest and HP Quality Center.

Other key features of Wind River Test Management 4.0 include: 1) a complete device reservation and scheduling system as part of the Virtual Lab Manager (VLM), which enables future device reservations and a visual scheduler; 2) test case versioning for test cases and scripted test components, which preserves change history to support various regulatory standards for auditing and access control; 3) support for systems with short time frame "watchdog" or "heartbeat" utilities, which further improves scalability and response time to enable the instrumentation of 70,000 functions in less than one second.
