Verifysoft markets and supports Conformiq Test Generator ™ in Germany, Austria and Switzerland

(Espoo/Helsinki, 30 June 2004)

Conformiq Software Ltd., a leading Finnish software testing and test consulting company, and Verifysoft Technology announce today the signature of an agreement concerning sales and support of Conformiq Test Generator in German speaking countries.
Conformiq Test Generator is a dynamic test automation tool that replaces the manual process of writing test scripts with automatically generated test cases.
Conformiq Test Generator´s test models are presented as UML state diagrams. Instead of the time-consuming and error prone script programming or manual testing, the test engineer creates test models with a user-friendly graphical editor. The relevance and coverage of the test cases created by the test generator is guaranteed by intelligent algorithms, that generate vast numbers of relevant test cases systematically.
Common areas of application include: Functional, system, and acceptance testing, Regression testing, Integration testing, Interface as well as Protocol/Platform testing.
Conformiq´s technology has been developed over a decade in research projects of finish Universities and in projects of leading Finish companies like Nokia and KONE. Since 1998 the technology has been further developed at Conformiq Software Ltd. into a user-friendly commercial product.

Verifysoft announces the release of CTC++ add-on for Borland C++ 5.0.2 IDE

(19 February 2004)

Verifysoft announces the release of the "Borland C++ 5.0.2 IDE"add-on which seamlessly integrates Testwell CTC++ (Test CoverageAnalyzer for C/C++) into the Borland C++ IDE.
This allows Borland C++ developers to measure code coverage with CTC++ within that integrated environment.
Testwell CTC++ is a powerful code coverage and dynamic analysis tool for C and C++. Whereas CTC++ already supports all actual Borland C++ versions using the makefile mechanism, the "Borland C++ 5.02 IDE" add-on facilitates every Borland C++ developer to measure code coverage in an intuitive and easy to use way directly from the Borland C++ IDE.
Compiling 16-bit code is supported but requires a separately available CTC++ Host-Target add-on.
Fully functional evaluation copies are available.
We wish to thank the Tools55 project for its work which provided the basis of our integration of CTC++ into the Borland C++ IDE.
