Test automation tool for Pascal on Unix
Does anyone know if there is any test automation tool that supports a system written in Pascal running on a Unix platform??
I have very little detail info about the system at the moment, all I know is that in its real-life environment the gui is on a screen in an airplane cockpit. I assume this is somehow simulated in a testenvironment.
Help me please!
Re: Test automation tool for Pascal on Unix
I suspect the best approach would be to sit down and talk with the system architects and designers. You'll likely need them to build "hooks" into the system with which test driver programs can interface. This would allow you to feed test data into specific components of the system in order to simulate desired test conditions. You'll then need to create test harnesses to interface with these hooks, the likely tool being Pascal itself, though you might well be able to use other programming/scripting languages (Perl?).
