Wind River Integration for Complex Code Verification

: 27 May, 2010  (New Product)
Workbench from Wind River and VxWorks have been successfully integrated with the LDRA Tool Suite
LDRA has integrated the LDRA tool suite with Wind River Workbench and VxWorks to provide a single work environment for safety- and security-critical certification. Thanks to a Wind River-specific Eclipse plug-in, developers have the flexibility of directly accessing LDRA tool suite capabilities from within Workbench or controlling Workbench and the VxWorks simulator from the LDRA tool suite.

Building on the Eclipse framework, full transparency is available between the Wind River and LDRA tools. Workbench developers can directly access LDRA static, dynamic and unit test capabilities or gain command-line control of the Workbench and VxWorks’ simulator to run system and unit tests from the LDRA tool suite. The LDRA tool suite reads Wind River project files and incorporates dialect details for specific Wind River DIAB and GNU compiler extensions. And, without leaving the Workbench environment, developers gain access to all LDRA tool suite reports enabling them to demonstrate certification compliance.

“LDRA and Wind River offer a long-standing commitment to providing certifiable software-critical development solutions to the developer,” noted Ian Hennell, LDRA Operations Director. “Tying our products together this seamlessly ensures that real-time, critical software developers have a complete solution that ties the analytical capabilities of LDRA with the compiler and graphical development environment of Wind River. The consistent user interface ensures the developer gets up to speed quickly on both products.”

“Skyrocketing device complexity and software content is raising the importance of quality and testing across our customer base, particularly in secure- and safety-critical industries,” said Chip Downing, director of Aerospace and Defense at Wind River. “LDRA automation tools integrated with Wind River’s embedded software solutions will help our customers accelerate their time-to-market of critical software for next-generation platforms.”

The integrated capabilities of LDRA and Wind River extend to the target testing environments. To enable customers to develop and test code before final target hardware is available, developers can leverage stubs with LDRA’s unit testing product, TBrun and the VxWorks simulator. Test case files created from Workbench projects integrate into TBreq, LDRA’s requirements traceability product, enabling developers to link tasks in Workbench to DO-178B verification tasks. This more complete support of the overall life cycle of safety critical development ensures early identification of errors, a significant cost saver for application developers.

The LDRA tool suite integration is available now for Wind River Workbench IDE and the VxWorks RTOS. Additional customization for specific platforms, workflow, and execution environments are available through the target license package process.
