Software Verification Tool Suite

LDRA (San Bruno, CA) has released v8.0 of the LDRA tool suite, an automated end-to-end solution for software verification support. By integrating requirements management into the LDRA tool suite using TBreq, LDRA’s tool for next-generation management and complete automation of requirements traceability, developers can reduce software errors, project costs, and resource constraints. TBreq creates a relationship between requirements, code modules, and verification artifacts (static analysis, dynamic analysis, unit- and system-level test). All informal changes and test results are recorded, and any requirements impacted by these changes are highlighted so that all team members can identify data and code which might be suspect.
