Combined the tools enable a user to implement and maintain traceability of their software from requirements definition to the point of test-case generation. This integration provides users with the ability to actually generate test cases automatically from a visual model of their requirements specifications so that tests directly reflect the desired functionality of the software. Thus, Validator/Req will generate the right set of tests to assure that software operates as specified.
As requirements change, the tool combination may be used to automatically show which test cases are affected and consequently which test cases will need to be regenerated. In addition, Validator/Req captures a visualization of the requirements information from the DOORS repository which gives both developers and testers a thorough understanding of the requirements specification -- helping them to avoid errors throughout the development process.
Validator/Req is a client-server-based, specification-based, test-generation tool that enables development and QA organizations to automate testing efforts, complete projects sooner, increase software quality, and assist customers in realizing measurable cost savings.
