Abstract

genNLV - A Web-based, Direct Install Image, Translation Verification Testing (TVT) Tool. A user submits a translated resource file through a simple web interface and receives the compiled file required in their existing install image. The input file is processed in the standard DB2 build environment which is made accessible through a web server. The tool improves the TVT process by allowing testers to make translation changes and verify the results immediately on all Universal Database (UDB) supported platforms (Linux, Sun, AIX, Windows). In the past testers would submit their files to Lab file handlers and wait for a patch (which required manual handling and was error-prone), or a new install image to be made available - a process that takes days due to the many products and platforms that DB2 gets built into with every new build. With the genNLV tool, the cost of translation testing is reduced and the overall quality of the product is improved.
