Description

HCL OneTest Embedded is a complete test and runtime analysis tool set for systems development created in any cross-development environment.

HCL OneTest Embedded provides tools for automated component testing, code coverage, memory leak detection, performance profiling, and UML sequence diagram tracing.

What's new in Version 8.3.1

The following sections list the new features, enhancements or other changes made in this release:
  • Monitoring
    • This feature targets cyclic-executive applications, that is applications that mainly rely on a cycle where input data are read and output data are set at each cycle. These input/output data are implemented with global variables.

      See Application monitoring

    • The complete application is instrumented to be able to access to the global variables in read/write mode with various means (socket, files…). See Prerequisites to monitoring applications.
    • A new view in HCL OneTest Embedded for Eclipse IDE is available to interactively modify the input data and display the output data. See Monitoring a cyclic executive application.
    • Output data can be displayed as curves on a graphical view.
  • Test Case Generation for C (preview):
    • This is a preview feature of the new test case generation integrated in HCL OneTest Embedded for Eclipse IDE only for now.
    • When this feature is enabled, the source code is analyzed and the test cases can be generated from:
      • The call graph: A coverage objective can be provided to generate test cases.
      • The coverage viewer: Clicking on a branch displays in a new view the precondition to satisfy in input of the function under test, and a new test case can be generated to satisfy this precondition.
    Note: No customer support is ensured for this feature for now. If you have any queries or issues about the Test Case Generation for C (preview) feature, you can request help from OneTest Embedded forum.
  • MISRA updater:
    • When you update from an old version of HCL OneTest Embedded and you use MISRA in HCL OneTest Embedded for Eclipse IDE v8.3.1 for the first time, you are requested to update the configuration rule with the new rules added to the new version. By default, the unselected rules are disabled, they must be selected to be enabled. See Configuring code review rules.
    • In HCL OneTest Embedded Studio, the configuration file is automatically updated and the new rules are disabled. See Running a code review.
  • Support for Eclipse 2020-06 (4.12)

    HCL OneTest Embedded is still delivered with Eclipse 4.7.2 but it can be also installed on Eclipse 2020-06 (4.12).

  • TDP Visual 2019

    A new Target Deployment Port dedicated to Microsoft Visual 2019 is delivered.
