Utilizes McCabe’s Advanced Visualization Technology to Target Test Efforts

January 20, 2012 - CRANSTON, RI - McCabe Software has announced that one of the solar industry’s leading firms has integrated McCabe IQ Test Team Edition into their embedded software development lifecycle for their modular solar electricity system. The client, among the growing number of McCabe users with an alternative energy focus, produces a ground-breaking solution that converts the sun’s heat into electricity using a patented engine with a dish-style solar concentrator for creating grid-ready solar power.

“When you are harnessing the power of the sun, you want to make sure that you are doing it as efficiently and effectively as possible,” says David Belhumeur, CEO of McCabe Software. “We are confident that by adding McCabe IQ into their process, they will do just that by meeting or exceeding the software quality milestones that they have put in place.”

McCabe IQ’s advanced software quality visualization technology was a key component in its selection. Working with embedded C code, the user is now able to easily navigate through their source code architecture to pinpoint areas of complexity and target their testing resources on the most vulnerable, risk-prone sections.

“Our client found McCabe IQ’s visualization capabilities to be unmatched,” says Belhumeur. “The graphics are extremely useful for presenting and discerning information about their source code and testing efforts.”

McCabe’s test coverage technology allows the client to not only analyze the lines of code or branches of code that have been tested, but goes a step further with its exclusive ‘Cyclomatic Path’ coverage. This technique, unique to McCabe, illuminates the logical paths through the source code and is the most stringent software test coverage method available.

“People don’t necessarily associate software with solar power, but more and more, software is touching every corner of our lives,” says Belhumeur. “It is crucial that life, mission, and business critical software, such as is being developed in this case, be thoroughly vetted and tested. This is where McCabe IQ shines.”
