Reliability Testing Tools
This chapter describes the following automated testing tools:
Rational TestFactory.
Assists with testing by combining automatic test generation
with source-code coverage analysis. Tests an entire application, including all GUI
features and all lines of source code.
Rational Purify.
Pinpoints run-time errors and memory leaks in Visual C++
application code, and errors related to garbage-collection in Java application code.
Rational PureCoverage.
Identifies the parts of your Java, Visual C++, or Visual
Basic program that have and have not been exercised. Exposes testing gaps so you
can prevent untested application code from reaching your users.
Rational Quantify.
Profiles your Java, Visual C++, or Visual Basic application to
help you identify performance bottlenecks in your code.
